World’s Fair are New York. Not just the location, though no one is better equipped to rep their hometown than this collective from Queens. They are the dirt, dreams and neon, the sound of hard days and endless nights… but New York has never sounded quite like this. Since their debut tape Bastards Of The Party, WF have taken their time crafting an ambitious, future-minded album worthy of the unique personalities of Remy Banks, Nasty Nigel, Cody B Ware, Prince SAMO, Jeff Donna and Lansky Jones. “Elvis’ Flowers (on my grave)” is the warning siren: chopped up vocals and frantic breakbeats from Black Noi$e and NoLife meet adrenaline-laced bars, all building to an ecstatic, break-of-dawn bass release. Play it loud, get into some trouble, and get ready for more.
FG loves NY! Peep what went down at the first ever Coney Island #FGDAYOFF with Jay Electronica, A-Trak, Flosstradamus, PNB Rock, Trippie Redd and the rest of the legends. (Special shout to Four Loko!) There’s a full photo gallery over on the Fool’s Gold FB, check out some of our favorites after the jump. Read More
Five cities, thousands of fans, a whole damn supergroup of artists and DJs… DAY OFF 2015 was the biggest Fool’s Gold festival trek yet! From Travi$ 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.
We closed 2015’s epic run of Fool’s Gold DAY OFF shows with a Texas-sized jam at Stubb’s in Austin featuring Earl Sweatshirt, A-Trak, Gladiator, Ape Drums, Rome Fortune, D.R.A.M., Towkio, Nick Catchdubs, Remy Banks, Maxo Kream, BROCKHAMPTON, Bames, Yung Wall Street and Beautiful Lou.

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
