    Yea, I'm excited to see what that merger with C3 leads to.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    They're using the same Wheel of Fortune-style lineup reveal they used for Lolla a couple years ago.



    Here's a local publication's guess:

    Pretty excited for LouFest, especially since i'll be living in St. Louis for the next few years. Grabbed my $50 2-day pass during the presale!
    Looks like the C3 partnership is helping a lot.

    Here's a slightly clearer version of someone's guesses.
    The general consensus is that the headliners are The Killers and Wilco (most likely) or The Strokes and Wilco (less likely but more awesome).

    Not much that wasn't already guessed, but I'm satisfied. Definitely worth the $50 I paid for my 2 day pass.

    The Killers are a bummer but whatever, ill deal with it.

    I've posted my general comments on LouFest's FB page, but I am bummed by The Killers. It would have been nice to have some more upbeat, danceable stuff in the bigger bands. Trampled by Turtles don't count. Fitz and the Tantrums will be party time drinking festival fun. Ed Sharpe and Alabama Shakes are decent inoffensive midlevel festival bands. Disappointed in the far fewer number of local bands considering they are adding a stage.

    Wilco, the National, Toro Y Moi, Local natives are all good in my book. Jim James could be great or dud. Hard to know.

    I think it was a purely financial decision, they sell more tickets than any other act on the bill. LouFest is not a destination festival, people aren't traveling across the country and world to go. Additionally, there just isn't a large enough market to have a FYF type lineup in St. Louis. I'm considering The Killers as a necessary evil.

    The Strokes, Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs all would have been fine. Especially since it's not a destination fest. We don't need to draw people from far away.

    Shit, the first year the headliners were Jeff Tweedy and She and Him.

    I will be skipping this fest again this year.

    There's 6 or 7 acts I want to see at Kanrocksas, if most of them fall on Saturday, I'll buy a pass for that day.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    After digging into the mid level bands (most of those under Toro Y Moi I had never heard - or heard of), I am bummed that there are so many boring-ass bands.

    I feel like St. Louis is doing a poor job of advertising the likely appearance of Bruce Campbell (as MalcolmJamalAwesome).

    He should at least be a fifth-liner.

    LouFest was impressive! This year was the biggest so far - apparently the attendance on the first day this year was greater than the combined 2-day attendance of any of the 3 previous years. Three stages, short lines, decent sound ... it's organized by the guys that do Lollapalooza now (C3?), which was fairly clear from the fact all of the signage used the same color scheme and font from all of the Lolla signage.

    I caught some pretty enjoyable sets from The National, Edward Sharpe, Fitz & the Tantrums, and Alabama Shakes. Hands down favorite act was Nashville's SPACE CAPONE, a bunch of white dudes that sound like Prince.

    Also, I saw Icona Pop. It's the worst thing anyone has ever seen and I hate it and I don't want to talk about it.
