ST. LOUIS –The St. Louis Board of Aldermen approved to bring a big-time music festivals to the city over both the Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, according to mayor spokesperson Maggie Crane.

The board of alderman’s vote gives Summer Rocks LLC exclusive access for 20 years to parts of the downtown Gateway Mall.

Summer Rocks is owned by the Los Angeles talent agency ICM Partners, which arranges talent for events that include major music festivals such as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.

City leaders say the St. Louis events would be on that same scale. ICM’s local contact, Stephen Stogel, says the Memorial Day show would focus on country music, the Labor Day event on rock.

The list of performers has not yet been announced. The events would begin in 2015.
