The thousands of people who attended our Day Off party last year (or saw the footage immortalized in Duck Sauce’s smash “Barbra Streisand” video) spent an afternoon living it up with the country’s most fun MCs and DJs, eating hamburgers in one hand and catching a crowd-surfing Yelawolf in the other.
