Fool’s Gold’s Day Off festival is back for another year and the dates are out. Before the lineups are announced and tickets go on sale, the dates and the cities were announced today. Los Angeles, Atlanta, Brooklyn, Miami and Austin are the landing spots.
“Day Off started as a party in a Soho parking lot 5 years ago and is now an actual festival in multiple cities,” said A-Trak “It’s where we bring together all the music we listen to, from FG extended family to artists we’re fans of. We’ve met people hanging out at Day Off that we ended up signing to the label — it’s really where the whole vision of Fool’s Gold comes together. And this year’s events are going to be bigger than ever. Your favorite festival is back!”
