Mad Decent just announced the Fort Lauderdale lineup for its 2016 Block Party on July 30 at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, and it's looking pretty good.
Besides Diplo himself, who last year performed with his groups Jack Ü and Major Lazer, the bill features Toronto future house producer AutoErotique, LA's indie-pop leaning Big Wild, and San Francisco's psychedelic vibes purveyor Giraffage, among others. An additional headliner has yet to be announced.
Here's the full Fort Lauderdale lineup released today:
- Big Wild
- Dillon Francis
- Keys N Krates
- Sleepy Tom
- Bad Royale
- Boombox Cartel
- Jackal (DJ set)
- Snappy Jit
- Willy Joy
From deep house, funky electro, and trap to trip-hop and moombahton, MDBP's 2016 lineup runs the gamut of EDM's ever-evolving shades of bass, showing off yet again Diplo's mastermind curatorial skills and keen taste-making ear.
Tickets to the 18+ event are officially on sale today as of 1 p.m. and cost $36.50 plus fees or $72 for VIP.
