We are happy to announce Fetty Wap as the first artist announced for #Fest: 14th Edition AKA #14Fest!
Fetty Wap has arguably been the hottest name in hip-hop this year with what have become anthems for 2015, including “Trap Queen”, “My Way”, and “679”. His fourth single “Again” cemented his spot in history as the “first artist ever to simultaneously chart his inaugural four entries in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot Rap Songs Chart.”
The rest of the #14Fest lineup will be announced soon.
With this announcement, GA + VIP tickets, parking passes, and camping passes are now on sale! Click here to get yours.
More info on camping will be released in the coming days, as well as the official #14Fest Tailgate right before gates open for the festival!
As a part of our continued commitment to better the #Fest environment for years to come, we have been working hard at improving The Venue Of Athens. Here’s an overview of some of the improvements currently being made that will be ready for #14Fest on April 16, 2016.
New Venue Layout
We’ve literally flipped the venue around in terms of entrances and stage placement. Everyone will now enter from the side of The Venue where the stage has been in the past. This is the same layout that was used for Country Night Lights back in September. See the below map for an idea of what this will look like. Where “Gate 2″ is on the map was where the entrance has been for #13Fest and the #Fests before.
Note that this map was for a previous event, and the #14Fest layout will be different.
Addition of a 2000+ space parking lot on-site
At the bottom of the map above, you’ll see “Main Parking”. We’ve made available a large section of The Venue to park over 2,000 cars on-site. This will allow for easier and safer entering and exiting, as well as helps with overnight accommodations on-site.
Emergency Access Lane added to main entrance road.
We’ve expanded the entrance/exit trail to include a new lane dedicated to emergency access only. This helps our local police and EMS to respond and provide assistance faster than before.
Larger VIP and Cabana Areas
For those ready to head to #14Fest in style, we’ve expanded the VIP and Cabana sections to provide a true VIP experience. They will allow more room for you and your crew to hang out, plus plenty of other great perks we’re working on.
Improved drainage system
We’re tackling the issue of a muddy and swampy Venue with an improved drainage system, designed to dry out the Venue grounds quicker. This benefits EVERYONE, from those putting together and building the stage, to you as you rock out to some of the biggest names in music today.
We’re happy to announce that #Fest will be returning for its 14th edition on Saturday, April 16, 2016! The one-day event will once again take place at The Venue Of Athens. Discounted pre-sale tickets will on sale on Wednesday, September 2 at noon – a very limited amount of tickets will be available!
In order to keep improving the festival experience for everyone, we’ll be implementing a few changes from years past.
First, we’d like to announce that we will be implementing camping into #14Fest! This will allow overnight accommodations to be more readily availably, as well as ensure more people have a safe place to stay at the end of the festival. More information on camping will be announced soon.
Starting with #14Fest, BYOB will no longer be allowed with #Fest. We feel that this is necessary measure to ensure the safety of festival-goers, as well as the longevity of #Fest. However, as with the previous two #Fest’s, we will have a wide variety of alcohol available inside the venue at very reasonably prices (think back to last year), and will be increasing the amount of bars to make sure everyone can grab a drink in a timely fashion.
And don’t you worry about who’s headlining #14Fest. We’ll have the HUGE names that you’ve come to expect! In fact, the hunt for your #14Fest headliners have already started…
Pre-sale tickets for #14Fest go on sale on Wednesday, Sept. 2 at NOON – set a reminder they will sell out QUICK! Ticket links to be posted on @thenumberfest social media and will be found here at TheNumberFest.com
See you all on April 16.
