Ever been to a Mad Decent Block Party? 2014 could be your chance.
What was once a low key summer BBQ has grown into one of the wildest multi-artist tours in the United States. Today Mad Decent announces that its infamous Block Party Tour is going global! The first country the block party will hit is South Africa, with tour stops in Johannesburg and Capetown. The lineup includes Mad Decent heavyweights Major Lazer, Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus. No word yet on whether or not the crew will add local talent to the lineup, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see some South African guests on stage.
The Mad Decent Block Party started out as a tiny, neighborhood event soundtracked by Mad Decent head honcho Diplo and his friends. Since its inception in 2008 it’s grown into one of the craziest summer tours out there. MDBP hit thirteen cities across America during the summer of 2013. Last year it only hit five! It’s a testament to the incomparable group of artists, genres and especially fans who come together for a day of music and partying.
This summer Pepsi Pulse toured with artists like Diplo, Major Lazer, Dillon Francis, Lunice, Danny Brown and even Skrillex. In honor of Mad Decent’s global news, we’re taking you behind the scenes of the Mad Decent Block Party 2013 Tour. Watch the video above and get hyped for what’s to come in South Africa!
