Fool’s Gold’s annual DAY OFF is an end-of-summer institution. For seven years running, the all-day event has become a celebration of everything the beloved, genre-crossing Brooklyn label stands for— a musical slip ’n slide, connecting the city’s livest, most stylish fans and and a Who’s Who of new-school legends. DAY OFF is a scene in the truest sense of the word, a festival programmed like your favorite DJ set.
Who’s rocking the 2016 edition? Atlanta’s royalty Migos and rap anarchist Lil Yachty. Two generations of Harlem kings in Dipset legend Juelz Santana and rising star Dave East. FG chief A-Trak setting it off as a maestro behind the decks (and a conductor of special guests like none other), and fellow turntablist Gaslamp Killer providing his signature psychedelic bass. With label familia Nick Catchdubs, Meyhem Lauren, Leaf and more keeping the party going all day long, it’s another can’t-miss Fool’s Gold event.
It goes down on Saturday, August 20th in Brooklyn. Tickets for FGDO NY are available now at fgdayoff.com — earlybird tickets for FGDO Miami (9/17) and Los Angeles (9/25) go on sale this Friday at 1pm EST.

Fool’s Gold redlines into spring with Night Shift, a 17 track compilation, available from all digital retailers on April 1st of new dance music from the label’s latest signings and loudest family members. Since launching in 2007, the beloved Brooklyn indie founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs has pushed hybrid sounds to the forefront of the electronic scene. But Night Shift is the sound of a brand-new model year racing off the FG lot, shinier and heavier than ever.
A-Trak and Ookay’s bass anthem “Only One” races alongside Athletixx’s experimental clubber “PNTHR,” while massive remixes of electro royals Tommy Trash and Alvin Risk ride shotgun with tunes from upstarts KRNE, GEOTHEORY and Madeaux. Rap vocals from Atlanta, house beats from London, synth riffs from planets unknown… Night Shift is an enjoyably motley mix of styles, tempos and attitudes, bound together by a definitive Fool’s Gold aesthetic. Burning rubber never felt so good! Premiered on Pitchfork, listen to “Only One” below and pre-order Night Shift. Tracklist below.
