Diplo talks festival culture in Mad Decent Block Party documentary
Diplo‘s Mad Decent Block Party reached a new high in summer 2013, spanning just short of two months and bringing chaos to 13 cities across the US and Canada. In the wake of its unprecedented success, Urbanears followed the Mad Decent crew as they traveled all over the country, documenting the historic parties and conducting interviews with Diplo and label manager, Jasper Goggins. Diplo says: “Festival culture is so big right now in America. You have the massive festivals, the kind of festivals that are geared towards a certain demographic, certain style and sound. But we wanted the MDBP to kinda go with anything goes.” Urbanears’ footage not only draws clips from this year’s shows, but also takes viewers back to 2008, when MDBP first opened its proverbial doors.
