Since its start in 2014, the Seven Sense Festival has showcased music, art, food and spirits each August, drawing more than 20,000 people.

The first four years it was held on the streets and in the bars of Germantown, but this year it’s moving to the Highlands to take over the grounds of music-themed Gravely Brewing Co. — on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 10-11.

Just like previous iterations, the lineup will include more than 40 local, regional and national acts, along with local art, fare, beer and cocktails.

Along with the Gravely offerings, there also will be beer from Bell’s Brewery as well as a few other local and regional craft breweries. And Heaven Hill Brands will be on hand with bourbon, tequila and more.

Food options will include Mayan Street Food and Momma’s Mustard, Pickles & BBQ.

The highlight, however, is the music, and this year it’s bigger than ever. Headliners include All Them Witches, The Whigs, *repeat repeat, Cedtric Burnside Project, Matthew Ryan & The Northern Wires, Tristen, Appalatin, Vessel and many, many more.

Festivities will run from 6 p.m.-2 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 10, and noon-2 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 11. The event is all-ages up until 11 p.m. Tickets are $20 for a two-day pass.

Best of all, proceeds from Seven Sense go to Girls Rock Louisville, which offers a summer rock camp for young girls.
