At long last, LouFest's 2016 lineup has been announced, with LCD Soundsystem, Chris Stapleton and Ms. Lauryn Hill sharing top billing. This year's lineup brings considerably more diversity than years past, both in genre and demographic terms. From the plucked strings of Greensky Bluegrass to the street-hardened rap of Vince Staples to the blues guitar wizardry of the legendary Buddy Guy, music fans of many stripes will find something here to sink their teeth into.
As ever, some of St. Louis' finer acts have made their way onto the bill as well — perhaps more than ever before. Foxing, Illphonics, Aaron Kamm & the One Drops, Bruiser Queen, Karate Bikini, the Sleepy Rubies and John Henry will all make appearances.
LouFest will once again take place in Forest Park on September 10 and 11. For ticket information visit the festival's official website
