KNWD 91.7 FM The Demon, Northwestern State University’s student-run radio station, is proud to host their fifth annual DemonFest Music and Arts Festival April 21-22 on Iberville Green at Northwestern State University. The gates open at noon both days with music beginning at 1 p.m. Along with many musical acts on two stages, attendees can expect a variety of art, clothing, music, and food vendors.

KNWD will partner with the NSU Student Activities Board Concert Committee this year to bring in Billboard chart-topping electronic duo 3OH!3 as headlining act for Day 1. The NSU SAB’s annual SpringFling, a free event for students, will be happening alongside DemonFest Day 1 for the first combined “DemonFling” event. 3OH!3 is best known for their 2008 hit “Don’t Trust Me,” and their 2010 hit featuring Ke$ha, “My First Kiss.” 3OH!3 performs on the main “Demon Stage” at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, April 21. Leading up to 3OH!3, attendees can expect a lineup of local artists such as MAXDAB, DJENKO, SAVEJ, BeXrDwN and much more.

Headlining Day 2, KNWD has brought SWMRS, a unique punk-rock band that brings in elements of many different genres. They are most recognized for their alternative smash hit “Figuring It Out,” which the group performed on the Late Late Show with James Corden. SWMRS perform on the Demon Stage at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 22. Before SWMRS, DemonFest attendees will be treated to a line up including Rareluth, harbor., BRDFRD, The Wall Chargers and many more.
