Free Concerts at Soldier's Memorial


The tradition of free concerts downtown continues, beginning with Fair St. Louis and continuing with Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concerts (formerly known as Live on the Levee.) In the summer of 2012 there will be two weekends of free music in downtown St. Louis.
  The concerts used to be held on the St. Louis Riverfront but because of flooding, as was the case last year, the location has been moved to Soldier’s Memorial. This is a safer option because of the frequent summer flooding along the riverfront. Streets around Soldier’s Memorial will be blocked off from Tucker to 14th Street and Market to Pine.
  There have been a few changes and security measures implemented into this years summer concerts. Everyone must go through one of three security checkpoints to gain access onto the grounds. Attendees can bring one plastic water bottle per person. Coolers, cans or alcohol will not be allowed on the grounds. There will be vendors, at the concerts selling food and drinks. Fireworks will no longer be set off after the concert and the kids activity area is gone, as well.
  The headliners will take stage at 8:00pm. Plan ahead, be safe and enjoy the free music downtown.

                                                       Here is the 2012 concert schedule:

July 13 – Neon Trees
    July 14 – Michael Franti and Spearhead
