Fools Gold will bring their “Fools Gold Clubhouse,” a series of festival events and performances that showcase some of the most exciting names from the label’s roster and extended family. The CounterPoint edition of the Clubhouse will include DJ sets from label co-founder Nick Catchdubs, Oliver, Treasure Fingers and the other half of Fools Gold, A-Trak.
“Fools Gold has been throwing parties for as long as we’ve been releasing records,” says
label co-founder Nick Catchdubs. “
We designed our festival stages so we could take that feel-good vibe on the road. It will be especially fun to bring the Clubhouse to a brand-new festival like CounterPoint, where we get to be the pioneers of this uncharted territory.”
