Philly’s Own “Diplo” set to host Mad Decent Block Party Saturday
Back in May, we highlighted this summer’s can’t miss outdoor events in & around Philadelphia. While The Roots Picnic & July 4th have come & gone, much remains to look forward to this July & August. The festivities continue this weekend, as Producer/DJ “Diplo” returns to his hometown of Philly, for the annual Mad Decent Block Party.
Diplo & his “Mad Decent” label have come a long way since their original recording studio on 12th & Spring Garden. He frequently headlines music festivals worldwide, just returned from tour with his live project “Major Lazer,” continues breeding talented young producer on Mad Decent, and hosts a weekly show on BBC Radio 1xtra – just a few ways Diplo keeps busy.
The local event, turned traveling musical showcase, returns to its original home in Philly this Saturday the 27th. Diplo headlines the event as his “Major Lazer” project, with a slew of Mad Decent artists & DJ friends joining him at Penn’s Landing. The sold out event spans the entire day, from
1pm to 9pm. Arrive early for sets from Nadastrom, Swizzymack & Dirty South Joe, to name a few. Flosstradamus & Dillon Francis take the stage in the afternoon/evening, followed by Major Lazer. Soundgarden Hall & Morgan’s Pier host afterparties later on Saturday night.
This is unfortunately a sold out event; however, tickets are still available through secondary markets: http://bit.ly/18B09Ry
