Dietrich Hinesman, a senior studying sport management, will attend Number Fest for his third time this year. He is looking forward to seeing Migos and Young Thug.
“They have the most hit songs,” he said of the two artists. “They are the only ones I really listen to. The other artists have a song I listen to here and there but not their body of work.”
Hinesman is hoping his final Number Fest is a good one and that the crowd gets into the performances.
“I just want the crowd to be involved,” he said. “If the crowd as a whole knows the song, that helps the atmosphere. I hope (the artists) play their songs that everyone can sing along to.”
