Entertainment by DJ Sober and A-Trak
Performance by the Jabbawockeez
Presented by Fortress Presents
At a time when the DJ sits firmly at the center of popular culture, A-Trak stands out as MVP, a passionate leader who holds together all facets of the craft. After spending years as Kanye West’s tour DJ, the Grammy-nominated and DMC World DJ Champion-winning A-Trak founded the celebrated record label Fool’s Gold and developed the careers of artists like Kid Cudi, Danny Brown, and Flosstradamus. Very few share his mastery of turntablism while also sitting at the forefront of musical innovation, looking keenly to the future with history tucked in his back pocket.
About the Jabbawockeez
The renowned Jabbawockeez hip hop dance crew performs all over the world, and their show is resident at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. They are widely known for being the winners of the first season of America’s Best Dance Crew in 2008. The Jabbawockeez performed with Bruno Mars at Super Bowl 50 in 2016 and join the artist for his current 24K Magic World Tour.
About DJ Sober
The deejay, producer, and illustrator has left an indelible mark on Dallas’s music scene over the last decade, from launching the influential soirees The Party and Big Bang! to cooking up remixes and party records as one half of the production duo Booty Fade. Along the way, he’s held down gigs spinning at Cowboys and FC Dallas games, spun private affairs for local icons Erykah Badu and Dirk Nowitzki, and toured the country as the former DJ for rap group A.Dd+. All the while, he’s brought his distinctive taste and curatorial sensibilities with him, opening audiences’ ears to new sounds and ideas.
After midnight, guests may continue the evening at Ampersand for the Official After-Party. Fort Worth’s best kept secret is a modern-day speakeasy that not only serves freshly roasted coffee during the day but continues the party through a secret entrance after hours.
