Mad Decent Block Party 2015 Announces Fort Lauderdale Lineup

It’s time to yank those underpants up your butt and do a handstand. The big daddy of twerkfests is coming back to Revolution Live, and it’s packing more bass thumps and rump shakers than your ass will know what to do with. The Mad Decent Block Party just announced its official 2015 lineup for Fort Lauderdale, and tickets are already on sale.

Diplo will be working harder than ever this year, because he’ll be putting on a show as part of Major Lazer and Jack Ü. Yes, Skrillex (the other half of the Ü crew) will be in the building, as well as Jauz, Rick Remedy, Thomas Jack, Yellow Claw, and Zeds Dead.

There will be dubstep, electro, tropical house, Jamaican crunk, and more trap beats than a candy-painted Coupe de Ville. The party is 18 and over this year, so at least you don’t have to worry about watching underage booties bounce. Just don't go buying drinks for all the ladies without asking for ID.

Diplo once called Fort Lauderdale the most ratchet place he’s ever seen. Don’t let him down now. Mad Decent Block Party 2015 Lineup
