One of Diplo's greatest creations is the Los Angeles-based label Mad Decent. Together with Major Lazer cohorts Jillionaire and Walshy Fire, he's built an EDM empire that is actually, and undeniably cool. Mad Decent, is taking its annual Block Party on tour this summer, making its South Florida stop at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale on August 3.
Florida man, three-times Grammy-nominated producer, and all around crazy talented DJ Wesley Pentz, a.k.a. Diplo, aims to bring new genres and cultures to light in the ever diversifying musical community with a series of outdoor dance parties and concerts across the United States and Canada.
Starting July 19, in Calgary, and ending September 15, in San Diego, 2013's Mad Decent Block Party will be setting off on its largest festival undertaking to date, bringing a full day of musical performances and tons of fun on-site activities to 13 different cities.
A limited number of discounted early bird tickets are available now for $20, which also come with a free 30-day premium Mad Decent membership to their subscription service.
