The moment we have all been waiting for is upon us... the DePaul Activities Board has released the student survey to determine what bands will play at FEST this year. The choices range from multi-platinum hip-hop stars (Young Jeezy, Three 6 Mafia) to indie-pop groups (Stars, Annuals). A couple names on the list come as surprises: I could've totally seen Sara Bareilles as the opening act at FEST last year, but I would be surprised to see her get a high enough percentage of votes to make it on the bill for this year's edition. That's just one man's opinion, though... I promise I'm not trying to influence opinions!
To see all your options and cast your vote, go here.
And to discuss your choices with other DePaul students, don't forget to check out the facebook group here.
Don't forget, FEST itself will be May 29th, 2009!
Also, here's a pretty sweet clip I found of The Roots performing at FEST 2007.
