LouFest 2012 has a few announcements coming down the pike, and $50 presale passes are already sold out. The festival, entering its third year, will be looking to once again expand slightly, and hopefully the lineup will continue its trend of evolution.

We'll be bringing you our 2012 LouFest lineup wishlist later in the week, but first we want to hear from you: Who would get you out to Forest Park this August?

i wish they'd shift the focus from the rather easy listening Americana stuff to artists who are a bit heavier/weirder.

...much more but I just can't think right now...

I'd also like to see you guys book more hip hop acts along the lines of outside the box guys like you did with Das Racist. Lil B and Danny Brown perhaps?
