8 Fest was held this past May in Athens, OH outside of Ohio Universities main campus. The Princeton Review has recently ranked Ohio University as the United States #1 Party School…. We’d like to think 8 Fest is the reason. Cleveland, OH’s own, Machine Gun Kelly, headlined the event along w/ the likes of DJ E-V, Cornelius Jackson, Fly Union, iPhonic, Swagg, DJ Edski, Ray Jr. and many more, the crowd of 14,000 + students witnessed the best music festival Ohio has to offer. The party continues… 9 Fest Is Coming.
