Where are you going tonight? Oh, I am just going to Diplo’s Party! Say What? That is right, Diplo & the MAD DECENT squad are back with their MAD DECENT Block Party Tour this year and it may just already be the tour of the year. It boasts a MASSIVE lineup that is jam packed with, well it seems like everyone. The tour hits 19 cities across the United States, including a couple pit stops in Canada. It will truly be a tour that will tear across the country yet again with Diplo at the helm of it all.
This lineup is ridiculous! With only some of the lineups being revealed in full it leaves us to wonder, where does this superstar list fit in all of this MADness? The lineup is as follows, sorry for the long list beforehand, Diplo didn’t hold back #BlameDiplo.
Alison Wonderland, Borgore, Brazzabelle, Bro Safari, Cashmere Cat, CL, Cut Copy, Dakytl, Destructo, Die Antwoord, Dillon Francis, Diplo, Dirty South Joe, DJ 4B, ETC!ETC!, Flosstradamus, Gent & Jawns, Giraffage, Goldlink, Gorgon Cirt (DJ Set), Grandtheft, HRMXNY, Humans, ILoveMakonnen, JACK Ü, Jauz, Keys N Krates, Klingande, Knife Party, Major Lazer, Meaux Green, MIJA, Nadus, Netsky, ODESZA, Oliver Heldens, Party Favor, Porter Robinson, Ricky Remedy, Riff Raff, RL Grime, Shiba San, Skrillex, Slaptop, Smalltwon DJs, Swizzymack, T-Pain, Thomas Jack, Thugli, TJR, Tommy Trash, Towkio, Trippy Turtle, TWRK, Tyler, The Creator, UZ, Vic Mensa, What So Not, XXYYXX, Yellow Claw, Zeds Dead.
Man, every time I read it I just think, wow what an assembly of such diverse artists, DJs, and producers. From T-Pain and Tyler, The Creator, to ODESZA, to Cut Copy, to Porter Robinson, to Knife Party. Then of course the creator of all this madness has sprinkled a little of himself, Major Lazer & JACK Ü all over EACH MAD DECENT location. It is nice to see MAD DECENT stretch out and reach out to all kinds of music and sounds and uniting such an all star tour. Any location will be amazing, each block party will be unforgettable and I wish I could go to every single one. Different strands of EDM and hip hop and just an overall party that will knock your socks off. You will be arguing with your best friend about who the better Batman, that will be the level of party mode you will reach (“Neighbors” reference HA).
Diplo is a machine, a brilliant business minded producer and DJ that knows how to have a good time. His calendar has been full. He has been making music with Madonna, releasing a match made in heaven duo with Skrillex by the name of JACK Ü, a brand new album and show with Major Lazer, now he has this massive tour to bring to the people. Do you think he is up to the challenge? Diplo is welcoming it. Ready for MAD DECENT Block Party, don’t stop the party till 6 in the morning!
