LouFest 2017 schedule announced

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - Here’s your 2017 line-up!

The official schedule for the 2017 LouFest has been announced. The festival will take place on September 9th and 10th in Forest Park.

“The numbers from last year were excellent,” said Greg Hayes, director of the St. Louis Department Parks and Recreation and Forestry. “I believe we had close to 50,000 people across the two-day event. Yeah, it’s definitely grown over the years and they want to keep growing in the park.”

That partnership with Forest Park Forever, the St. Louis City Parks Department, and Listen Live on Thursday announced a partially filled field of musicians and bands.

From Weezer to Huey Lewis and the News, the two-day music festival is returning for its eighth year in Forest Park this September. But the Central Field home for the 30 band music festival isn't available this summer.

“Central Field is under construction,” Hayes said. “One of our capital projects in the park. It is at upper Muny parking lot just behind the Jewel Box, if you will.”

Organizers said they will unlock those question marks of various font sizes on May 30, when the remainder of the lineup and local restaurants will be announced.

“They project to have three stages instead of four,” Hayes said. “Couple could be on grass one in the parking lot or two on grass. But it’s still under discussion.”

Headliners include Weezer, Cage The Elephant, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Huey Lewis & The News, Lizzo and more!
