LouFest is an annual two-day music festival in Forest Park right next to the medical school. The venue contains three stages, numerous food stands, and a variety of vendors. The 2017 line-up was mostly alternative rock music with headliners Weezer and Cage the Elephant (and my favorites Rainbow Kitten Surprise and Hippo Campus). However, there was also an eclectic mix of other performers, including Snoop Dogg, so definitely check out the lineup to see who’s coming. Cost for a two-day pass is $95 for regular purchase or $85 for early bird. There are also some one-day options available closer to the date of the festival. LouFest 2018 will take place September 8-9.
