Mad Decent Block Party lock in their 2016 return

Mad Decent Block Party began back in 2008 as a free event in Philadelphia but in 2016, it’s grown to become to U.S.-wide, seriously-enviable touring festival.

If you haven’t experienced the madness of Diplo on tour yet, now’s the time to start making plans. The label head has locked in the dates for this year’s roving party, with the MDBP set to make 15 stops across the American summer, kicking off in Florida’s Ft. Lauderdale and winding up in Los Angeles. Tickets are on sale now.

While we’re still waiting on the line-up, Diplo is a given, as is a cast of Mad Decent’s best rising acts. You can also count on a bunch of Wesley Pentz’s high-powered friends coming through – last year, he recruited the likes likes of trap dons Flosstradamus, South African weirdos Die Antwoord and relentless prankster Dillon Francis, with each city boasting a different bill.

For an idea of what Mad Decent Block Party looks like, flick through the photos from last year and watch the 2016 trailer below.
