For the last three years, I’ve gone to over 100 shows in the New York City area. At this point, few show lineups get me as excited as Fool’s Gold Records‘ annual Day Off concert. I’ve gone the last two years, and have gotten to see some pretty amazing moments both backstage and on-stage. Last year’s Day Off, which was headlined by French Montana and featured surprise performances from Remy Ma and Cam’Ron, was rough for me though. I had just come back to America from a two-week trip to India and I was jet-lagged like crazy; by the time French hit the stage I was half-asleep.
Fool’s Gold has continuously set the bar pretty high for their Day Off events, but this year, I was bracing myself to be underwhelmed by the lineup, so that I wouldn’t have to spend my Labor Day in Williamsburg. However, this year’s lineup might be the strongest yet. Headlined by Meek Mill, the concert will feature performances by Skepta, the Flatbush Zombies, Post Malone, D.R.A.M., and Towkio, along with Fool’s Gold staples Brenmar and sets from the founders, A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs.
Of course, Fool’s Gold Day Off has now become a traveling festival series, and as such the label has announced four additional stops this year: Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, and Austin, Texas. Naturally, each city will have a different headliner. Action Bronson will top the bill in LA, while Rich Homie Quan will headline his hometown of Atlanta. Some acts will perform at all five cities, while some will be exclusive to one city. Check out the flyers for each city below.
