It’s back. Since 2010, Labor Day’s greatest tradition (eating potato salad in the Hamptons isn’t a tradition) is dancing up a sweat at the New York installment of Fool’s Gold Day Off, the all-day, feel-good, can-this-really-be-happening concert curated by its titular Brooklyn-based record label. We’re psyched to welcome the party (and we do mean party) to 50 Kent (Kent Ave. and North 12 St.) on Monday, September 1 as part of the Northside Summer Concert Series.
So it’s back in Brooklyn but also better than ever. Joining the lineup this year at the 6,000-capacity space is: Danny Brown, French Montana, AraabMuzik, The LOX, Benmar, Hoodboi B2B Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World’s Fair, Fool’s Gold cofounder Nick Catchdubs (feat. B.I.C.), Shash’U, Black Dave, GrandeMarshall and, per tradition, a ton of special guests. Follow @FoolsGoldRecs for updates and clues.
A limited number of $15 tickets go on sale Tuesday, July 15 at noon at fgdayoff.com. After those are gobbled up, tickets will be $20 advance and $30 day of. Gates open at 2pm, music starts at 3pm and will wrap up around 10pm.
We’ll see you on the pavement, being all awesome and sweaty.
