Marking its sixth anniversary, LouFest takes over Forest Park’s Central Field Sept. 12-13.  Unveiling a list reaching almost as high as the city’s famous arch, organizers said Billy Idol, Nate Ruess, Umphrey’s McGee, Lord Huron, J.J. Grey & Mofro, Pokey LaFarge, Blue October, Misterwives and Albert Hammond Jr. will also appear.

But we’re still skimming the lineup.  Digging a bit deeper shows Milo Greene, Strand Of Oaks, Robert DeLong, Delta Rae and Colony House are making a date with LouFest.

But music, albeit the big attraction, is just one of the building blocks making up LouFest.  The event prides itself on offering the best food and drink St. Louis has to offer, all curated through the Nosh Pit.
