Number Fest's Twitter account is polling people this week.
Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Thursday, Oct. 15, 2015:
Despite consistent backlash from Athens County residents, yet another Number Fest will be held in April, and festival organizers have begun drumming up potential headliners.
Since Tuesday, the festival’s Twitter account has been asking followers to retweet artists they would like to see in the spring.
So far, Fetty Wap, popularized by songs “Trap Queen” and “Come My Way,” sits atop the leaderboard with more than 1,000 retweets.
Rae Sremmurd (“No Type”) has garnered more than 700 retweets, and Machine Gun Kelly, who notoriously once played Athens and partook in what police called a riot, sits in third with about 530 retweets.
Number Fest said a final round of polling will take place today, so keep an eye on @TheNumberFest if you’d like to cast a vote.
