DePaul Fest Putting in Work

festThe lineup for DePaul Fest 2018 was recently released and I can say I am fairly impressed. A$AP Ferg and BJ The Chicago Kid is a pretty good lineup considering previous years’ performers. Out of all honesty, I passed on Logic last year, but this year is looking to be a must-attend for me. I was sincerely shocked when I heard A$AP Ferg was coming to DePaul. I wouldn’t say I actively listen to his music, but I thought an artist of his caliber would be too big of a name to book for Fest. As for BJ The Chicago Kid, I think he is a hidden gem. You might know him from his hook on Schoolboy Q’s “Studio,” Chance the Rapper’s “Blessings,” his remix of Kanye’s  I Can’t Hold My Liquor,” or his feature on A$AP Mob’s “Way Hii.” I had the chance to see him as a part of the Redbull 30 Days in Chicago, but I was not able to. I have high hopes for this year’s Fest.

Tickets for Fest 2018 are available now for only $10 with an additional $1.09 fee.  Check the link ​below to grab a ticket. The concert is available only to DePaul students and it is one ticket per person. The concert will be held on Friday, May 25th at 5:00 pm on the Quad in Lincoln Park. I am hoping A$AP Rocky will make a surprise appearance at Fest, but that is definitely a long shot.
