The Return of LouFest: The Roots, Das Racist, Ume, The Hold Steady

Ume to perform at LouFest this Aguust

Last year, LouFest burst onto the St. Louis music scene with a 2-day concert featuring hipster indie bands. LouFest returns this August 27-28 and is bringing along The Roots, TV on the Radio, !!!, Cat Power, and Deerhunter among others. Tickets are $64 at the gate, but check the site for cheaper early bird options.

LouFest also featured an impressive greening effort which will continue this year. They recycled 66% of their waste, offered a refillable water station, and offset the CO2 equivalent of about 3 million miles. There’s also an EcoZone with local organizations committed to conservation, recycling, and clean energy.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
