#Fest 11th Edition, the largest college music festival in the Midwest, unveils its most star-studded lineup to date. EDM sensation Steve Aoki and hip-hop’s rising star Kendrick Lamar will headline this year’s festival, giving college students an epic ending to their school year. Bad Rabbits, Watch The Duck, Fly Union and Huey Mack will also be performing at the festival.
Considered one of the most enticing and electrifying DJs, international superstar Steve Aoki solidifies his reputation of being a “raucous” showman by showering his fans with champagne, launching birthday cakes in their faces, crow-surfing in his inflatable raft and playing the most high-energy, catchy and party-inducing house music of our time. – MixMag.com
Aoki is nominated for Best Dance/Electronica Album in the 55th Annual Grammy Awards for hislatest album “Wonderland,” released in January 2012. Fellow nominees in the category include Skrillex, Kaskade, Deadmau5 and The Chemical Brothers. – MixMag.com
Twenty-four year old, Californian Kendrick Lamar is this year’s hottest up-and-coming hip-hop star. Exposing his audience to the setbacks and defeats of growing up in the inner city, Kendrick’s tell-all lyrics earned him the title of “Lyricist of the Year” at the 2012 BET Awards. –The Source
Kendrick’s debut album “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” had the most successful opening week of any rap album of 2012. With this album, which features rap legends Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar also was named “Rookie of the Year” by The Source, hip hop music’s leading news source. – The Source
Bad Rabbits blends dance music reminiscent of the 80s and 90s with rough, edgy beats to create a style comparable to no other artist. – last.fm
Watch The Duck song, “Poppin’ Off”, premiered at #10 on BET’s 106th and Park.
