Photos: The FADER FORT Presented by Converse Day 1
Live photos from the first day of The FADER Fort presented by Converse, featuring performances by Big Freedia, YG, Little Dragon, and more.
This year's The FADER FORT Presented by Converse kicked off on a sun-drenched, slightly windblown weekday. Yesterday's performers included Lil Bibby, Bipolar Sunshine, Temples, HBK Gang, The Orwells, London Grammar, Little Dragon, and as usual, some big surprises. The always-lovable Big Freedia invited members of the audience on stage for a twerk-a-thon, angel-voiced SZA came out during Isaiah Rashad's performance to sing "Ronnie Drake" and Ty Dolla $ign crashed YG's set. Snoop Dogg showed up too —no big deal —running through a couple songs from his hit-heavy catalog, including mid-aughts banger "Drop It Like It's Hot." All day, Converse was screen printing custom, made-to-order T-shirts, guests hand painted bottles with the Glass Is Life crew, got stress-free shuttle rides from Mazda, and vitaminwater® kept our collective thirst quenched. Captain Morgan White and Budweiser hooked up the bar; there were even rum-spiked snow cones. Check out some photo highlights above, and remember that even if you're not in Texas this week, you can watch the Dell-powered live stream right here, right now, on theFADER.com.
