Fool’s Gold Day Off 2016

Less than 12 hours before A-Trak’s “Fool’s Gold Day Off,” there was no venue and no event. An out of commission helicopter ruled out the 34th Street Heliport, where this year’s festivities were scheduled to occur. Miraculously, his team scrambled and proceeded to secure a location, with less than six hours to spare. The RSVP team got an invite and captured the madness firsthand.


Fans packed the Garden at Studio Square in Queens as A-Trak and friends stormed the stage one after another for seemingly endless high energy sets. Performances by Lil’ Yachty, Juelz Santana, Migos, and A-Trak topped the bill, but a plenty of surprises were in store. Check out the video above and the photos below to get a full peek into this year’s party.

Neon and Nonsense Episode 13

It’s festival season, which means Neon and Nonsense is going to be busy. We kicked off the season with a trip to one of Virgil Abloh’s Flat White happenings, right here in Chicago. His hometown came through and packed the house, draped in Off-White, to show love to the Chicago native. Just three days later, we linked with Schoolboy Q for his Blank Face Pitstop, check out the full recap of that here.


This past weekend provided a plethora of shows and began with a high-energy performance from Madeintyo, Famous Dex, and Ugly God. The energy carried into Pitchfork, which featured a strong cast including Blood Orange, whose newest album Freetown Sound has received outpouring love from fans. Anderson Paak, who made the cut on XXL’s freshman 15, came with insane charisma as the crowd matched him throughout the night. The final day proved legendary, as Jeremih brought out fellow Chicagoan Chance the Rapper for a brief stint. FKA Twigs closed the festival with a legendary performance that was a perfect blending of music and high-performance art. Check out the video above and the photos below for more gems and stay tuned for Neon and Nonsense to come.
