The official LouFest lineup is still a bit off, but the fest is still working hard to improve this year's model. For example, on May 7 and May 21, Off Broadway will be hosting a battle of high school bands. Three groups from each night -- or six bands in all -- will be chosen to play 30-minute sets at LouFest in a side stage area in Area K (which was known as the Kids Village last year). To enter, LouFest's blog has all of the details. In a press release, organizer Brian Cohen says:


"We're 
excited 
to 
be 
doing
 this.

 Playing
 LouFest should
 be 
fun 
for 
the 
bands 
and 
inspiring 
for
those 
who 
see 
them.

The 
opportunity
 for
 teenagers 
to 
be 
part
 of 
a 
festival 
like 
this 
is 
pretty
rare. 

But 
it's 
something
 we're 
doing 
to
 help 
nurture 
the 
next 
generation
 of 
musicians 
in 
St 
Louis."
