43 Drop Dead Gorgeous Photos From Thursday At The FADER FORT

Here’s what went down on Day 2.

March 17, 2017

Late Thursday in Austin, Texas, the fearless Cardi B climbed into the DJ booth with Jxmmi from Rae Sremmurd. She performed her new Offset-featuring single "Lick," her wavy red hair half-hidden under a mesh hood. It was the kind of surreal magic moment that makes The FADER FORT, our annual celebration of the music we love, such a consistently special place to be.

And that was far from the only memorable thing that happened Thursday. Smino slayed with help from Chicago mainstay Monte Booker, and Jxmmi teased unreleased Rae Sremmurd heat, and orchestrated a big group Budweiser toast. White Denim performed their new rainy day anthem “No Nee Ta Slode Aln,” and Chloe and Halle and Little Simz closed out the night, with killer sets respectively. Check out Friday's lineup, and watch the livestream to see performances as they happen.

The FADER FORT is made possible this year by Toyota RAV4, Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, Budweiser, vitaminwater Zero, MyMusicRX, The North Face, and Dream Hotel.
