Announcing The #Fest - 12th Edition Lineup Featuring Wiz Khalifa, Carnage, GRiZ, and more

wiz khalifa carnage and griz are performing at 12fest at ohio university


We’re happy to announce the lineup for #Fest: 12Fest Edition AKA #12Fest featuring Wiz Khalifa, Carnage, GRiZ, and much more! #12Fest, which takes place on April 12, 2014, right outside of Ohio University’s campus in Athens, Ohio, has become known around the US as The Nation’s Largest College Music Festival. It solidified this title with over 16,000 people in attendance at #11Fest in 2013, which featured Kendrick Lamar and Steve Aoki as headliners.

Pittsburgh-native Wiz Khalifa has become a staple in today’s hip-hop scene. Wiz started an underground artist, releasing multiple mixtapes, until breaking through with the mixtape “Kush & OJ”. He followed that up with the chart-topping hit “Black and Yellow”, which has become an anthem around the country. His debut studio album, “Rolling Papers” dropped in 2011 and has been followed up with “O.N.I.F.C.”

DJ and producer Carnage had a huge year in 2013, performing at nearly every major music festival all around the country. He rose to the ranks of the top-tier DJs as he became known for really getting the party going, and will blend right in with the wild atmosphere at #12Fest.

Announcing the #Fest Green Cup Campaign

The Green Cup Campaign is the start of a new era at #Fest. Safety, responsibility, and cooperation are aspects of the event that will always continue to evolve for the betterment of the event and all its attendees as well as the community we host #Fest in. Beginning with #Fest: 12th Edition (AKA #12Fest), we will be initiating a Green Cup Campaign which will require anyone drinking alcohol to pour their beverage into a cup instead of drinking from a can.


- Why?: To PREVENT injury, to MAINTAIN integrity, to CREATE the safest environment for our artists AND attendees, and to ASSIST in our efforts to maintain a clean environment around the venue as well as continuing to further our recycling efforts.

- How to get a cup?: #Fest Green Cups will be available at the entry gate at #12Fest. Everyone who is over 21 will be required to get a cup. The cups are 100% free and you can take them home with you at the end of #12Fest.

Ohio University is about to be taken to an entirely new level with the announcement that I’m Shmacked, the college documentary tour known for their outrageous parties and crazy college videos, joins us for #Halftime on October 5.


I’m Shmacked has teamed up with upcoming DJs Fareoh and George Garcia to tour the midwest, including stops at Ohio State, Kent State and more. Originally starting as a video documentary series, I’m Shmacked has taken on a life of it’s own, depicting college life on campuses around the country. Everybody knows that when I’m Shmacked is in town, it’s going to get weird.


Fareoh, a 20-year-old DJ from New York, has enjoyed a rise in success, including touring with prodigy producer Madeon in 2012. He has accompanied I’m Shmacked for their entire fall tour, and will perform at #Halftime before The Chainsmokers, RiFF RAFF, and Hoodie Allen take the stage. Take a listen to one of his latest tracks, a remix to “Take Me Home”, below:
