The FADER FORT Presented by Converse NYC traveled to Manhattan on Saturday, posting up in an all-windows sunroom overlooking 29th Street. Headliner Travi$ Scott, ever the ball of energy, precariously climbed a lamp; SZA performed new songs while her new puppy, Piglet, watched from the audience. A live stream powered by Dell and Intel of all the day's performances—also including Empress Of, Sisu, Wara from the NBHD, Drowners, ASTR, Saul Williams and the Dragons of Zynth and Calvin Love—was broadcast on TheFADER.com and a massive screen on the wall of the building adjacent to the party. Folks enjoyed Budweiser, Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum and vitaminwater before heading back to Converse Rubber Tracks for an insane afterparty, where FORT fans and artists from all three days congregated for a performance by World's Fair. Nick Catchdubs closed out the night, DJing an hours-long set that prompted the guys from JODY to create a huge mosh-pit.
