St. Louis’ biggest local music festival gets underway Friday evening and all day Saturday with a lineup that the Riverfront Times has billed as its best yet. Featuring more than 100 performances by St. Louis-based bands across 11 venues, ShowcaseSTL 2019 aims to match that quantity with quality, and organizers have taken a collaborative, input-heavy approach to planning.

On Friday’s St. Louis on the Air, guest host Jim Kirchherr of the Nine Network talked with RFT music editor Daniel Hill and with Joe Hess, who has spearheaded the curation of the lineup.

This year’s theme is the idea of discovery. The festival presents both long-established artists and emerging ones, in all sorts of musical genres, for concertgoers.
