One of the most anticipated concert lineups of the year is only 10 days away.

1/ Can the official Loufest wristband be removed? 
If you’ve purchased a two-day ticket, only one wristband will be issued. One-day bands will be a different color than two-day bands and if the bands look tampered with, Loufest reserves the right to turn away concert-goers. Treat your wristband with respect!

Two-day passholders will be allowed re-entry into the festival five times per day. One-day passholders will need to see security to secure a pass for re-entry.

2/ Can concert-goers bring pets?
The only animals allowed on Loufest grounds will be service dogs. Leave the fur-babies at home.

3/ Can Loufest attendees bring cameras?
Personal digital cameras are allowed at Loufest. Point-and-shoot, small digital cameras, cell phones and GoPros are all fair game. More advanced photo equipment, such as zoom lenses and tri-pods, will only be allowed into the festival with a photo pass.

4/ Can concert-goers bring children?
Kids who are ages 12 and under are allowed to attend the Loufest Music Festival with a ticketed adult, free of charge.

5/ Forest Park is huge, where is the music?
The festival is located in Forest Park on Central Field. Find a map to the exact location on Loufest’s website. If you prefer not to park at the concert, you can ride your bike or hop on Forest Park Trolley #3, free of charge with a Loufest ticket.

Music will be held on four stages: The Forest Park Stage, The Bud Light Stage, The Shade Stage and The BMI Stage, all located on Central Field. Outkast and Arctic Monkeys will both perform on The Bud Light Stage. Find a downloaded schedule of the entire festival here.
