34 Stunning Photos From Friday At The FADER FORT

Here’s what day 3 looked like.

March 18, 2017

"I'm a sexy, fat black woman that raps her ass off," Lizzo said on Friday afternoon at The FADER FORT, our annual celebration of the music we love. Her set of infectious self-love anthems was as fun as it was powerful, not least because her all-lady crew is fly as hell. The crowd went wild.


All in all, it was pretty much a perfect day: we had Texas sunshine, cold Jack Daniel's and vitaminwater Zero cocktails to sip on, and, of course, a full crop of on-point performances — including a headlining set from D.R.A.M., who came through with all the hits, including "Broccoli," his slap-happy smash. He also brought the cutest plus-one ever.

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.
