Diplo has joined forces with some of the minds behind Burning Man for his four-stage block party, The Menagerie. On July 6th, Diplo and co. will take over The Midway in San Francisco for a one-day event featuring a multitude of stages and art cars.
Joining Diplo (real name Thomas Wesley Pentz Jr.) is Mr. Carmack, Jonas Rathsman, Kenny Glasgow, Sharam, Super Flu and unannounced special guests.
It's worth noting that Diplo is billed as "Diplo Presents Higher Ground." It leads many to believe this will be a house-oriented set, considering it shares the name of his latest house EP.
From the Burner side of things, organizers of camps Opulent Temple, Camp Questionmark, Root Society, and Duck Pond will be there to assist with production and fundraising efforts.

Diplo has recently been in the news as his group, Major Lazer, recently revealed Ape Drums would be stepping in for Jillionaire going forward. Diplo is also gearing up for another block party, but this one comes in the form of his own two-day party called The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival.
