Lou Fest '13 is a wrap. Brian Cohen, LouFest's founder officially stepped up and into the spot-light catapulting LouFest to the top of Summer's "must attend" festivals. A partnership with C3 Presents, the producers of Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits Festival was the shot in the arm needed to grow the festival from 2 stages to 3 and assisting with the booking of top name musical acts this year.
LouFest, in it's fourth year, was not just about late night headliners either. The entertainment kept all those in Forest Park moving and dancing all day and night. Nationally recognized bands Ra Ra Riot, Youngblood Hawke, Icona Pop were definite crowd favorites. It really was a who's who of this years top touring bands.
The most impressive act of LouFest '13 was how Cohen has stayed true to keeping his festival a St Louis event; supporting home town brands and even finding space on the line up for home town bands, a practice not necessarily adhered to at those other festivals.
LouFest has made it's mark, can't wait to see where they go from here!
