The most exciting block party of the year is coming soon to a major city near you, as Mad Decent Block Party will kick off this Saturday. Diplo’s annual showcase of his label’s current talent is now in its seventh year of existence, having only grown in size and reach.
Beginning in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, the party will be hopping to blocks in 22 cities – including Atlanta, Los Angeles, and its hometown of Philadelphia. The extensive lineup includes Big Gigantic, Chance the Rapper, Dillon Francis, Flume, Jack U, Wolfgang Gartner, Zeds Dead, and so many more.
What started out as a modest, free block party to entertain locals Philly has now turned into a multi-city adventure and one of the more unique tours on the circuit today. Most of the Block Parties are open to all ages, but if you’re looking to twerk it out with the 21+ crowd, head over to Encore Beach Club in Vegas on August 17th!
To hype yourself up for the impending madness, check out the trailer for this year’s tour as well as the official mixtape for this year’s block party, mixed by Canadian natives, Thugli:
