Forever we love Atlanta! The 2nd ever ATL DAY OFF was a true celebration of Fool’s Gold fans, family… and hoverboards. Watch our official recap video above to see what happens when the whole city comes out to rock with us! (There’s also a full photo gallery up on the FG FB to enjoy, some of our favorite selections after the jump.)
After teasing you with date and city announcements (and selling out earlybird tickets before revealing a single act), we’re psyched to release lineups for this year’s edition of FOOL’S GOLD DAY OFF events, hitting Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, Miami and Austin starting August 29th.
Label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs have once again curated North America’s most culturally resonant festival. Who else brings together street rap royalty Meek Mill (currently riding high with the #1 album in the country), UK grime icon Skepta and underground superstars Flatbush Zombies? Who can showcase EDM favorites Flosstradamus and Alison Wonderland alongside nu-millennial MCs D.R.A.M. and Post Malone? Top it off with fresh label signings Rome Fortune, ManMan Savage, Bosco, Leaf, Hoodboi, Falcons and Shash’U and you’ve got an eclectic and electrifying lineup, in true Fool’s Gold style.
“DAY OFF is our culture. It’s where the full scope of Fool’s Gold comes together, it’s everything we represent. It doesn’t belong to one scene or another: DAY OFF is generational. We’ve watched it grow, step by step, with pride. I can’t wait to pull some more surprises this year!” – A-Trak
Tickets for all five DAY OFF events are available now at fgdayoff.com, along with recap videos and photos from the last five years of FGDO shows, featuring Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Run The Jewels, Juicy J, Young Thug, French Montana and many others. Read More
The Foolcast returns with an hour of ATL heatrocks served up by one of our favorite DJs, Speakerfoxxx! The city’s biggest records, underground hits, and stars-in-the-making, all in one place… this is a must-bump. Listen now on the FG Mixcloud and stay tuned for more.
For our last label stage of the 2013 festival season (*wipes single neon tear from cheek*) we brought the Fool’s Gold fam down to the Chattahoochee Hills of Georgia and kicked it into overdrive at Tomorrowworld! It was an all day adventure: ATL’s own FKI and Speakerfoxxx (with Gangsta Boo MCing!) started the day off strong, Anna Lunoe, Codes, Nick Catchdubs and Style Of Eye kept it housey all afternoon, Bag Raiders and Treasure Fingers brought in the funk and brought down the sun, and then Fake Blood, RL Grime, Araabmuzik and A-Trak absolutely murdered late into the night with the help of a few thousand ravers (not to mention giant LED animations, fireworks, confetti cannons and more). But why describe it when you can watch the recap video above? Some of our favorite still pics after the jump as well. C U NEXT SUMMER! Read More
We’re heading down to Atlanta (well, Chattahoochee Hills) to rock another Fool’s Gold Clubhouse stage at the Tomorrowworld festival! It’s a big ‘un: A-Trak, Araabmuzik, RL Grime, Fake Blood, Treasure Fingers, Bag Raiders, Style Of Eye, Nick Catchdubs, Codes, Anna Lunoe, Speakerfoxxx and FKI will be throwing down all Saturday (9/28).
And if that’s not enough, we’re sticking around another day for a FREE afterparty Sunday afternoon (9/29) poolside at the downtown W with Nick Catchdubs, Anna Lunoe, Treasure Fingers, Tchami and Speakerfoxxx! RSVP for the afterparty at wdowntowndayparties.eventbrite.com and get our pitchers of sweet tea ready. Read More
