There are a lot things to look forward during Spring Quarter like nicer weather, making summer plans, and one of my favorites, FEST. FEST is a concert held on DePaul’s Quad on the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend. It’s my favorite way to end the year and take a break from school. FEST usually has a great range of artists. Here are just some of the artists that have performed at FEST over the past few years: Logic, Jesse McCartney, A$AP Ferg and BJ The Chicago Kid. This year we have 3Oh!3 and Lil Yachty.
Not only is FEST on campus and easy accessible to DePaul Students, it is also super affordable: Tickets are $5 if you got them before the announcement of the artists and still only $10 if you choose to buy them after the artist reveal. Although FEST is exclusively available to DePaul students, students are allowed to bring 1 guest to FEST for the same price – which is great because most other schools have finished for the year, so your friends from other schools could be available to come.
In addition, the show doesn’t stop at FEST. After the main FEST show, there is usually an aftershow in the Student Center for free, all you need is your DePaul ID to get in. Last year, Manwolves played the aftershow; a local Chicago band that I still listen to, and while the artist for the aftershow hasn’t been announced yet, I am sure they will be good.
