When they say "in a big way," they aren't kidding. Following last year's event the LouFest team announced that they would be partnering with C3 Presents this year, whom you may know as the organizers behind Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. From the article, by Kiernan Maletsky:
The marquee events currently put together by C3 -- Lollapalooza in Chicago and Austin City Limits -- are of course huge, long-established tent poles of the festival circuit. They are very different events from each other, and it's safe to say LouFest won't look too much like either one.
Sign up on the LouFest website for exclusive updates in regards to purchasing tickets and the event's lineup and start getting excited now.
