Since 2010, LouFest has been a small-town festival drawing big names; it celebrates St. Louis as much as the musicians that come to play here. It puts local names like Pokey LaFarge and Clockwork next to artists such as Hozier, Ludacris, and Billy Idol. And smaller bands with their own core following get a big stage and enthusiastic crowd in exchange for their travel to the Midwest.

LouFest founder Brian Cohen joined “Cityscape” host Steve Potter to discuss the festival and St. Louis’ place on the national map of big and bold summer concerts.

Cityscape is produced by Mary Edwards and Alex HeuerThe show is sponsored in part by the Missouri Arts Council, the Regional Arts Commission, and the Arts and Education Council of Greater St. Louis.
