welp. that was a whole lot of anticipation, for a fairly underwhelming lineup in this blogger’s opinion. but hey, the free booze and the atmosphere is always a huge draw, and i’m sure they’re planning a few surprises. with appearances and performances from schoolboy q, ab-soul, ra ra riot, diiv solange, future, trinidad james, chvrches, and much more. head to fader for the full lineup release.
the fader fort was another year of popularity, upcoming acts and free booze. the fine folks at fader put up plenty of videos, including the-dream, big k.r.i.t, ross, danny brown and more. check the link below for the goods.
