#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

#Fest - 11th Edition Date Announced

Mark your calendars and begin the countdown! #Fest - 11th Edition will officially take place on Saturday, April 13, 2013. After the original date of April 27th was released, many people became worried about this date interfering with final exams for the spring semester. Remaining true to our title of being “The Nation’s Premier College Music Festival,” we took your opinions and concerns to heart. We took the chance to hear what you thought, including a poll on Facebook asking which date you would prefer. In the end, both The Number Fest and YOU agreed that April 13th would be a more appropriate date.   We want to thank you for your continued support, as at the end of the day, The Number Fests are for YOU. Without you, we would not exist. Thank you for your support, feedback, suggestions, and most of all, coming out year after year to party with some of the best artists not only from Ohio, but from around the country. There’s more details about #11Fest coming your way soon (Music, anyone?).

Athens, OH – September 28, 2012 –

Artist Juicy J has been forced to cancel his performance at #Fest 10th edition due to a last minute invitation to perform at the BET Awards, in Atlanta, GA, which directly conflicts with his scheduled set at #Fest.

Remaining true to our title as “The Nation’s Premier College Music Festival,” we are pleased to announce that we have secured New Orleans native, Curren$y as our #Fest co-headliner.



Curren$y came on the scene in 2002 and is known for his unique, laid-back flow and original lyrics. He will be joining us in the middle of a recording session for his upcoming album, “Immaculary.”  Fresh off “The Smokers Club Tour” with some of the Industry’s best, expect to hear plenty of tracks off of his latest studio album, “The Stoned Immaculate,” released through Warner Brothers.

We are looking forward to Curren$y’s performance as well as the performances of 3LAU, Krewella, Coyote Kisses, roeVy and the rest of the #Fest artists.
