Mad Decent Block Party Announces 2015 Fort Lauderdale Dates


Last year was only the second time Mad Decent Block Party came to Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, but despite its short South Florida history, it's easily one of the most anticipated shows of the year. In 2014, the tour grew by 9 cities from the previous year. And now the ravers of Fort Lauderdale can put a big fat X on their calendars, because Mad Decent Block Party is coming back to Revolution Live this year on August 1, 2015. Downtown Fort Lauderdale is going to be loud and sweaty. 

Even louder and sweatier than a normal day.
Ticket pre-sale begins Monday, April 13, at maddecentblockparty.com, with prices starting at $25 plus fees. General on-sale tickets will become available on Friday, April 17.

The tour kicks off July 31 in Atlanta and ends September 22 in Chicago.
The lineup will be announced soon, but last year brought Action Bronson, Dillon Francis, Riff Raff, Zeds Dead, Flume, and Diplo — who created the Mad Decent record label — to the Venice of America. This year's show is sure to attract some of the world's hottest EDM acts. Diplo did just perform with Justin Bieber at Ultra, so anything is possible. 

Check out our video from last year's Mad Decent Block Party and get pumped, bro.
