LouFest two is in the books. This year saw the scale increase and many of last year's logistical complaints answered. The lineup, even with a last-second cancellation from the Roots, was more diverse and adventurous than its inaugural predecessor. The additional attractions, Area K chief among them, gave the grounds a more thoroughly festive feel. And despite the expansion, the crowd was never much of a logjam either getting to and from Forest Park or within the Central Fields.
We arrived at 11 a.m. on Saturday and left for good just about 36 hours later. We spent some time navigating the trash-can free grounds and took stock of the weekend's top sellers at the Euclid pop-up store. We did some tweeting and you did it better. There were family-friendliness and food and a few visits to the first-aid tent.
