Mad Decent Block Party reveals headliners by location
Over the past few years, the Mad Decent Block Party has become a staple in the summer festival scene. Each year, the label created and still curated by Diplo himself, brings a traveling festival to a number of high profile North American electronic markets. From a street corner in Philadelphia to multi-day festivals around the country and now even a cruise line, the growth of the Mad Decent Block Party brand has been extraordinarily impressive to say the least. For 2015, the festival shows it hopes to maintain its rapid growth with two-day stops in Philly, Brooklyn, and Los Angeles and star-studded lineups that could only be found at some of the world’s largest and most extravagant festivals – the same ones that may cost hundreds more to attend.
Among the announced artists, you can find the most impressive innovators in electronic music today. Jack Ü performances and sets from Mad Decent family like Jauz, Zeds Dead, and What So Not come as no surprise, but amongst the obvious lay experimental and rare performances, including the elusive Cashmere Cat b2b Trippy Turtle spectacle. Appearances from CL and listed performances from artists like Alison Wonderland, Daktyl, and XXYYXX show the forward thinking thought process of Diplo’s company, while Mad Decent die hards can rest easy; Dillon Francis, Major Lazer, and the other classic party members will perform along many of the stops.
