Let the planning begin.

Forecastle Festival just announced its daily lineups, giving attendees and contemplating attendees a chance to see when their favorite musicians are performing and which days they definitely can’t miss. The annual music festival will be held at Waterfront Park July 13-15.

The top three acts each headline a day, and those are Modest Mouse (Friday, July 13), Chris Stapleton (Saturday, July 14) and Arcade Fire (Sunday, July 15). The rest of the more than 40 acts are spread over the three days, which are listed below.

Single-day tickets will go on sale starting Thursday, Feb. 8, with a limited number starting at $69.50.

In our humble opinion, it looks like Saturday is definitely the day for us, as Jenny Lewis, Houndmouth, Jimmy Eat World and T-Pain all play before Stapleton takes the stage.
