In less than a month (April 15th-16th) Athens, Ohio will be the place to be for an unforgettable weekend. The Number Fest (#Fest) features a diverse lineup of acts that will all take to the stage just outside of Ohio University and for the first time, it will be a two day festival. This is the 14th edition of #Fest and is the Nation's largest college music fest.
There are many new options this year, one of them being able to camp on site of the festival, as well as several different ticket options available including single day, 2 day and VIP tickets (see link below). Aspiring DJ's/Producers out there who are waiting for their big break, listen up…you can win a performance spot at #Fest by submitting a 20 minute mix and getting your friends to vote. A winner will be chosen from the Top 10 mixes with the most votes. The contest ends April 4th. Click HERE for more details and good luck.
So what about the lineup? Prime Social Group are the ones responsible for putting together the lineup this year and did one hell of a Job assembling it. Headliners include Fetty Wap, The Chainsmokers, and Big Gigantic with many other fantastic artists filling out the bill, such as Lil Dicky, Slander, Post Malone, NGHTMRE, Pierce Fulton and more. With so many great artists I thought this would be a perfect time to sort them out and give you my top 5 EDM artists that you need to see.
Here are my Top 5 EDM Artists that you need to check out
5. Big Gigantic – Made for festivals like this. A must see on Friday. Recently released ‘The Little Things' about a month ago as a free download (see below).
4. NGHTMRE – Fresh off a performance at Ultra. Just released a new track ‘Holdin On To Me' that has him exploring a new sound and direction. Should be a wild set.
3. Slander – See #4. If NGHTMRE sticks around for Saturday, expect him to hop on stage during their performance when they drop their collabs.
2. The Chainsmokers – Expect an insane amount of energy from them. Their track ‘Roses' reached as high as #6 on the Billboard Top 100 songs. Again, coming off of a massive performance at Ultra, these guys are going to tear it up Saturday night. Will be a crowd favorite.
1. Pierce Fulton – A personal favorite of mine. A sound that is very uplifting, energetic and makes you want to move.
