Outkast Will Be Performing at Lollapalooza: What Does That Mean for LouFest?

Categories: This Just In


It's not unheard of for production companies to use the same talent in multiple events, so having Outkast at Lolla means that C3 could bring Outkast to LouFest, as well -- especially because OutKast is primarily performing at festivals this year. However, Outkast is playing a four-day festival in England during LouFest weekend, but the guys are only booked for September 5. That means that Big Boi and Andre 3000 could fly to St. Louis for the final evening of LouFest on September 7. Probable? Maybe not. But it's possible. We can still keep our fingers crossed.

We've pleaded with C3 and LouFest before to lead Big Boi and Andre 3000 to St. Louis, but this Lollapalooza thing means we'll only get louder. MAKE IT HAPPEN, C3!

Beyond the headliners, Lollapalooza also announced supporting acts this morning, including Calvin Harris, Lorde, Foster the People, Zedd, Childish Gambino and the Head and the Heart. These are fine acts, but nothing that will make us drive to Chicago -- most of these performers have hit St. Louis recently or will visit soon, with Lorde playing the Peabody Opera House last week and the Head and the Heart playing Pointfest in May.

This would make my year if they came here. I think they will just because Big Boi owes us a show seeing as he broke his leg last year and never showed for that gig at the Demo.

Here's hoping....last year's line up really lacked the "star power" LouFest thought they had as the Killers haven't been relevant in decades and Wilco was too much of a STL staple to be considered anything noteworthy. I think Outkast would be a great catch but I'm really hoping that they don't decide to under book and we get Kings of Leon, Foster the People & the Avett Brothers. LouFest just needs to get away from the "dad rock" and "twang rock" vibe that's been kind of dominating...I would love for them to see much MORE variety than seen in the past two years.
