Free concerts have become a tradition in downtown St. Louis beginning with Fair St. Louis and continuing with Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concerts (formerly known as Live on the Levee.) In 2013, there will be two weekends of free music in downtown St. Louis.

As was the case last year, the concerts will once again be held at Soldiers Memorial instead of the St. Louis Riverfront. Soldiers Memorial is a safer option because of frequent summer flooding along the river. Streets around Soldiers Memorial will be blocked off from Tucker to 14th Street and Market to Pine.
Here is the 2013 Concert Schedule:
July 12 - Josh Turner
July 13 - The Urge
July 19 - K'Naan
July 20 - Needtobreathe
So, what are your thoughts on this year's musicians? Who would you like to see perform at Live on the Levee? Share your opinion here.
Security measures will be similar to those for Fair Saint Louis. Everyone must go through one of three security checkpoints to get onto the grounds. Attendees can bring one plastic water bottle per person, but no coolers, glass bottles, cans or alcohol will be allowed.
Other Changes From Previous Years:
There are no longer fireworks after the concerts. The kids activity area is also gone, but there will be vendors selling food and drinks. Still, it's a nice way to spend a warm summer evening in St. Louis.
