DePaul’s annual big concert day, FEST 2013 was held on Memorial Day weekend this year on May 24th. DAB (DePaul Activities Board) did an incredible job planning the event which featured Diplo, Yelawolf, Minus the Bear, and Dillon Francis. As always, so much hype was built in anticipation of this event which is well attended every year.Before the big artist Diplo came on stage, a DePaul band The Outfit opened up, followed by Yelawolf and Minus the Bear. at After Hours, Dillon Francis headlined and it was the most attended After Hours in FEST history. He took over McGrath Arena by storm. All of these artists come from a wide range of music which took interests in all FEST goers.
In addition to having these amazing big name artists, DAB partnered up with SGA (Student Government Association) and sponsored all concert attendees with water bottles and FREE water via the Quench Buggy water refill station. This was a big hit!
Overall, FEST 2013 was a huge success (FEST 2013 Recap Video) , special thanks to all the staff and students who put in so much work into planning it and we cannot wait to see what FEST 2014 has in store!
