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 is an army! The beloved Brooklyn imprint is more than just a record label, but a coalition of guerrilla DJs and like-minded party people.

Five cities, thousands of fans, a whole damn supergroup of artists and DJs… DAY OFF 2015 was the biggest Fool’s Gold festival trek yet! From Travi$ Scott lighting LA on fire to Skepta shutting down NYC, from 2 Chainz and Flosstradamus turning up in MIA to A-Trak scratching everywhere, the fam went in for real! Watch the full recap video above, hit fgdayoff.com for more, and stay tuned for next year’s edition (which is sure to be even crazier). Big thanks to our friends at Grand Marnier for helping make it all possible.
Sometimes a party is JUST a party. We’ve been throwing legendary FG events in our hometown (and around the globe!) since 2007. Suffice it to say… we’re good at this! But the challenge remains… how does FG keep it fresh 8 years and running? Grab a new-school beat genius, a gang of Atlanta’s wildest talents, and LA’s reigning club queen… ship everybody to a strip club deep in BK… and get ready to get busy! The Fool’s Gold 8 Year Anniversary is the farthest thing from “just” another party. It’s a one-night-only affair for the books. Get your tickets now and we’ll see you Saturday, 11/7 at Club Lust Gentlemen’s Club in Brooklyn. Oh my!
