Fest 2019

Every year DePaul hosts an outdoor concert called FEST for students to relieve some stress before finals. This year’s performance featured 3OH3! and Lil Yachty​ and was held on the Quad on our Lincoln Park campus. FEST is a unique tradition hosted annually by the DePaul Activities Board (DAB), a student organization responsible for organizing on-campus student events. Previous FEST artists have ranged from T-Pain to Childish Gambino, and DAB usually includes two artists from different genres to appeal to a wider demographic of students. 

Before the main event there was even a series of additional openers, many of which were students from DePaul. Along with musical performances, DePaul hosted a series of food trucks and festival activities such as carnival games. Since we are officially in week eight of the quarter and final exams are only two weeks away, FEST was a great way for students to blow off some steam before cracking down to study and focusing on final projects and papers.
