Take a sick day. Or three.
It's time to start planning for another Fool's Gold Day Off -- that annual, often out-of-control, traveling rager thrown by world-champion DJ, party pro, and label boss A-Trak.
For 2014, the Day Off tour is set to trek from Brooklyn to Toronto, Los Angeles, and Atlanta before hitting the 305 during Art Basel Miami Beach week.
As the Fool's Gold barhead mascot might say: "Holla, if y'all feel shiny."
Fool's Gold Day Off 2014 Tour Schedule
September 1 50 Kent, Brooklyn
September 6 Toronto
October 12 Los Angeles
November 11 Atlanta
December 7 Miami
As per tradition, it all kicks off with a Labor Day bash in Brooklyn. And so far, that's the only lineup revealed, with 14 hip-hop and electronic types including Danny Brown, French Montana, Araabmuzik, The Lox, and Brenmar.
Meanwhile, the dates for Toronto, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Miami have been confirmed. But the venues and musical roster are still a hype-laden mystery.
Of course, when it comes to the MIA, we here at Crossfade would say, based on experience, that our local Day Off will likely take place at a chill party spot in either downtown or Wynwood.
And the lineup? Expect the Fool's Gold boss himself, along with longtime homies such as the aforementioned Mr. Brown -- and hopefully, a true 305 hero like last year's coheadliner, Trick Daddy.
May we request the long-awaited Uncle Luke and 2 Live Crew reunion?
