Get ready, Atlanta, the famed traveling party known as the Mad Decent Block Party is headed your way next Friday, July 31st. The time is almost here for ATL to get wild and crazy once again with a few of the top EDM acts supported by the Mad Decent label. This will be the third visit to the city of Atlanta for Mad Decent Block Party. Over the past few years, MDBP has brought the house down with DJ’s like Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, Zeds Dead, Flume, Major Lazer, RL Grime, and many more.
For the 2015 edition of the block party, Mad Decent will be packing a punch once again bringing us some big names in electronic music- Keys N Krates,Major Lazer, Meaux Green, Shiba San, TWRK, Yellow Claw, and Zeds Dead.
There’s truly no shortage of bass in this year’s lineup for Atlanta. Which, to be honest, is nothing that this city is going to complain about, right?! The party is going to take place in the Historic Fourth Ward & Masquerade Music Park next Friday, July 31st, and the event will begin at 2:30pm. Tickets for this event are still available at about 50 bucks plus fees. If you are a fan of any of these artists on this lineup, or a fan of some awesome live EDM performances, then there shouldn’t be any reason for you not to grab a ticket and head down to the MDBP next Friday!
But the party doesn’t stop there. MDBP is holding a special afterparty which will be held inside the Masquerade when the music stops outside. There are no announcements yet as to who the performing DJ’s are. The only announcement made is that it will be the Mad Decent All Stars. With a title like that, you know there’s going to be some big surprises in store for the afterparty. Tickets are now on sale for the official afterparty as well at a low $25.
Here’s a little mix of some good tunes by Diplo & Friends Radio to get you pumped up for the madness that will ensue next weekend.
