St. Louis, Missouri (September 7-8)

Admit it: you’re disappointed to learn that LouFest is not, in fact, Lou Reed’s belated attempt to spin his personal brand into a weekend of tunes, sunshine and corporate sponsorship. We’re all a little disappointed. But St. Louis’s LouFest packs an impressively star-studded lineup this year, including indie dad rock kings Wilco and The National, along with edgier fare further down the bill like Twin Shadow, Toro Y Moi, and Icona Pop.
