This Sunday (10/7) the crew hits Los Angeles for our first ever West Coast edition of DAY OFF, featuring A-Trak, Danny Brown, Chromeo (DJ Set), Cool Kids, Casey Veggies, Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs and special guests.
The response to our initial Day Off LA announcement was so crazy that we hit capacity on RSVPs only a few hours later! We held some space though, and will be releasing 500 additional RSVPs on the website today at noon PST. (If you’ve already RSVPed, hold tight – venue info will be emailed to you before the event).
For three years running, our annual DAY OFF party has been THE most talked about free music event in New York. The Labor Day extravaganza has featured the likes of Juicy J, A$AP Rocky, Just Blaze, Araabmuzik and the late, great DJ Mehdi. This year’s party was raved about by the New York Times, Village Voice, Pitchfork and countless others. So it’s only right that we transport our hometown insanity to the West Coast for the first-ever Los Angeles DAY OFF on Sunday, October 7th!
Highlights of Cali’s inaugural DAY OFF lineup include performances from FG capo A-Trak and the label’s reigning rap hero Danny Brown, a special DJ set from world class funksters Chromeo, longtime homies and 808 kings the Cool Kids, LA favorite Casey Veggies, and many more of Fool’s Gold’s illustrious artists, including Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, and special guests. You do not want to miss this one!
Party people and late night creepers, come kick it with Donnis and Nick Catchdubs tonight at WIP (34 Vandam St), where Catch will be spinning tunes and Donnis will be performing tracks off his Break Hundreds & Hearts EP, out now!
Tune in to BBC Radio 1 tomorrow night (Saturday, 9/8) for a two hour Fool’s Gold takeover of Diplo & Friends, featuring brand new DJ sets from FG bossalinis A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. It goes down at 8pm NYC time, 5pm LA time, and 1am (Sunday!) in the UK. If you missed the live broadcast, grab the mixes from these two gents’ Soundclouds after the jump. Read More
