LIVE: SXSW 2018 – FADER FORT Returns with Rae Sremmurd, Bbymutha, & King Combs

Seemingly, the team at the FADER has been crazy busy lately. Just weeks after releasing FADER FORT Setting the Stage – a hardcover book commemorating the first 15 years of the music event – they returned to Austin to produce the latest iteration of FADER FORT during SXSW 2018 in a new, smaller location. Staying true to their ethos, the FADER FORT lineup was filled with 3 days of scheduled performances by rising stars, fan favorites, and legends like Bbymutha, Cherrie, Valee, G Perico, Mozzy, and H-Town’s Bun B.

Highlights from the show include: BlocBoy JB and his crew doing their signature “Shoot” dance on stage and performing the Drake-collab “Look Alive” acapella; surprise performances from Raekwon and King Combs; Rico Nasty getting the crowd to start a mosh pit while Bbymutha danced alongside her onstage; and Rae Sremmurd amping the crowd up as the surprise headliners.
