One hundred bands, ten stages, one weekend. ShowcaseSTL is an event where local legends, longtime favorites and fresh faces all converge in the Grove for a marathon of live music. This year, it takes place on Saturday, June 22 with a kick-off party on the evening of Friday, June 21.

Not only did we poll the public on the music scene's unsung heroes, we took submissions from the artists themselves and formed a committee to build the best festival yet.

In the last two weeks we've rolled out two waves of artists, including Tonina, The Lion's Daughter, Shana B and over 40 more. Today we're happy to announce the next 25 additional acts joining St. Louis' biggest all-local music festival:
