When Mile High Sports Radio jocks Benjamin Allbright and Benny Bash spied a spandex clownfish-clad man with a guitar attempting to deliver a singing telegram to a nearby business, they decided to invite him into the studio for an impromptu interview.
"Insomniac really went all out on the interactive element of the festival. There were a couple of guys on stilts painted green, called 'Gneon Gnomes.'"

Introducing the most recent installment of The Once Upon The Forest Series; titled: TIME.
The talented crew who created this piece consisted of more than a dozen collaborators on site, shooting three scenes a day for five days straight - an opportunity to slow down and approach capturing The Forest in a new way.
Using a high-speed camera to slow down and isolate key scenes, the crew captured micro-moments of footage at a speed of 1500 frames per second. Each scene was orchestrated so that it could happen within 4 seconds of filming, with about 4 minutes of footage serving as the reward.
Every shot in this film was captured at Electric Forest 2017, and features real Forest Family in attendance, as well as performers and staff. This piece was a massive group effort, which relied on cooperation and support from each and every Forest HQ department in one way or another. The result is a truly arresting and beautiful visual art piece.
Orange peel has a brief cameo as one of three umbrella-wielding Yellow Men.

"In high heels, some characters painted and wigs, some of them pretending to play a guitar, went in disguise. They animated something that was already a party, but also generated curiosity among those who took pictures."

"There was a wash room contained in a little shed, where the bonnet-clad George Peele (aka Georgia Peach) and his lovely lady Miss Rhubarb sang songs (and even took requests, encouraging sing-a-longs and novice washboard solos) and allegedly scrubbed your soiled skivvies for you."

Founded in 2002 by Louisville native JK McKnight, Forecastle has grown from a neighborhood event to one of the country’s most anticipated summer festivals, drawing tens of thousands of fans from across the world to Louisville’s scenic 85-acre Waterfront Park.
In addition to featuring a who’s who of musical acts such as Jack White, The Black Keys, Outkast, Widespread Panic, Beck, Smashing Pumpkins, My Morning Jacket, Bassnectar, The Flaming Lips, Band of Horses, Sleater-Kinney, and The Avett Brothers, Forecastle has consistently promoted local artists and focused on environmental activism and outdoor recreation.

Fre3fall Collective handles Forecastle's visual design. Last year, Fre3fall hired George Peele as Performance Artist Manager for the fest. Peele returned as Performance Artist Manager in 2015, reprising his Hunter S. Thompson impersonator role and debuting stilt seahorses with longtime stilt buddy Nate The Average. Number 3 on The Courier-Journal's "Top 5 Things You Missed Sunday at Forecastle" list is "Giant. Sea. Monkeys." All publicity is good publicity, right?

“His eagerness matched only by his randiness, the performer’s lyrics stretch from the sincere to the ridiculous with an incongruous-yet-believable swagger. A lesser performer might not be able to pull off the odd combination of Lothario and Severin, but Peele has the melodramatic chops to make it work.” – Reverb
