Mega-popular DJ-producer Wesley Pentz (a.k.a. Diplo) brings his label's traveling party back to MCU Park for yet another edition of the Mad Decent Block Party—Brooklyn's summer music festival of high-powered hooliganism. Expect the combined energy of Governors Ball and Panorama Music Festival packed into a two-day block party which taps the hottest trending DJ's and rappers—fluorescent street fashion, questionable substances and all. From speaker-devasting kuduro beats to fist pumping dance music, get ready to bask in all Mad Decent's sunbathed glory.
