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.
