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.
