From the label that, for better or worse, brought us the "Harlem Shake," semi-insane internet rapper RiFF RaFF, and the addictive reggae-style of Major Lazer comes an all-day summer block party. Mad Decent is bringing the bass that's bound to tear up the outside at Revolution Live and give Fort Lauderdale a little dose of pure EDM heaven this August 3.
General admission tickets went on sale this morning, and if the sold out early bird sales are any indication, you'll probably wanna get your hands on one fast.
For a lineup that so far includes beat-bumping powerhouses Major Lazer, Zeds Dead, Flosstradamus, Big Gigantic, and RiFF RAFF, with more to be announced, we're thinking the $34.50 price tag for this outdoor mini-festival is a pretty great deal. Plus, chances are Diplo has some special surprises up his sleeves for the stops in his home state.
The 2013 Mad Decent Block Party stops in Fort Lauderdale at Revolution Live Saturday, August 3. You can purchase your tickets here. Check out a couple of our favorite videos from the Mad Decent crew below.
