I present you with my 2012 LouFest photo gallery. This was one of my favorite smaller festivals I have attended and I look forward to what the future LouFest’s will bring now that they seem to be coming into their own in their third year. Enjoy the pictures in this gallery as much as I enjoyed shooting them and go listen to some of these great bands (I highly suggest Little Barrie)

2012 Edition of LouFest Music Festival Announced!

WHERE: Forest Park, St. Louis, MO

WHEN: Aug 25-26, 2012

HOW MUCH: $60-$70 (2 day pass) / $40 (single day)

The 3rd Annual LouFest lineup has been announced, and boy oh boy is  it a good one! Previously LouFest has featured headliners such as She & Him, TV on the Radio, Broken Social Scene, Built to Spill and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco to name a few. Last year was supposed to feature The Roots, but their performance was cancelled just a few days prior to the show due to travel issues and Questlove ended up doing a DJ set while The Hold Steady stepped up to headline.

This years lineup is topped with one of the most energetic live bands out there, a band that makes every show a party… and a band that somehow seems to always “get permission” from the local police to allow marijuana smoking at their shows during just one song… The Flaming Lips! Also at the top of the bill is Gregg Gillis, better known to most by his stage name, Girl Talk. The 3rd installment of LouFest will also feature performances from alt rock legends, Dinosaur Jr as well as alt-country band Son Volt featuring Jay Farrar, former Uncle Tupelo band mate of Jeff Tweedy. Other bands featured are rockers Dr Dog, indie rock favorites Dawes and the recently reunited Cotton Mather. My favorite band on the lineup based solely on their name is definitely Springfield, MO’s Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, with St. Louis’ Sleepy Kitty a distant 2nd.

The Flaming Lips

The grassroots festival takes place in the heart of St. Louis at the Central Field at Forest Park on August 25-26, 2012. The premise for LouFest is to book a few solid headliners, and then give the remaining spots to emerging local and touring artists, and some of your favorite established artists (See: Dinosaur Jr)  LouFest will feature music spread out over 2 days and 3 stages, as well as retail, food and beverages (both adult and all ages), and best of all the festival features a massive Go Green effort with recycling, compost stations, free valet bike parking, and refillable water stations. This is also a family friendly festival, and kids 10 and under get in free with a ticket holding guardian! You even get in and out privileges, so if you want to spend a chunk of one day at the amazingly awesome St. Louis Zoo located in the same park, go right ahead!

Early Bird tickets are available now and will run you $60 for a 2 Day Pass. As the event approaches, the cost will go up to $70 or you can buy single day tickets for $40 at a later date…. pick up your tickets now!!!
