Mad Decent Block Party Brings Out Major Lazer, Zeds Dead, Riff Raff, Baauer, SBTRKT
Published Apr 30, 2013While last week Diplo's Mad Decent imprint unveiled the summer itinerary for its annual Mad Decent Block Party, the label didn't deliver any deets on who would be playing any of the events. The time has finally come to share the specifics, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Diplo's own Major Lazer will headline the whole affair.
As previously reported, the first stop takes place in Calgary on July 19. Though a venue has yet to be confirmed, Major Lazer will play that particular stop with Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, Big Gigantic, Paul Devro and Smalltown DJs. The next Canadian stop is July 26 at Toronto's Fort York Garrison Common, and again features Major Lazer and Zeds Dead, but also has appearances from Riff Raff, Thugli, Grandtheft and more.
Across the U.S., other artists appearing at the Mad Decent Block Party include Nadastrom, Lunice, Rockie Fresh, SBTRKT, Keys N Krates, Matt & Kim, "Harlem Shake"-deliverer Baauer, Sasha Go Hard and more. A Tribe Called Red and Danny Brown are listed on the tour poster, which you can see above, but it's not been revealed just where they'll fit into the schedule.
