Mad Decent Block Party Announces 2016 Tour Dates


Fans of Diplo’s esteemed hip-hop/bass music record label have newfound reason to rejoice. The organizers of Mad Decent Block Party have revealed the 2016 dates for the tour, reigniting hype for each of its 13 stops throughout North America.

If 13 sounds a bit sparse for a Mad Decent Block Party tour, that’s because it is. Last year’s series of shows featured 22 dates; Calgary, Vancouver, New Orleans and one of the Los Angeles stops are among those that have been slashed between this year and last.

Nonetheless, what dates remain will likely prove unforgettable for those in attendance. While no official talent roster has been announced for the 2016 tour, last year’s stops featured performances from the likes of Mad Decent label head Diplo as well as Alison Wonderland, Borgore, Dillon Francis, Jauz and What So Not.

The 2016 edition of Mad Decent Block Party will begin its tour in Fort Lauderdale at the end of July, and will wrap up in Los Angeles at the beginning of April.
