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
