It’s been since 2007 when Diplo threw his first Mad Decent Block party. Diplo (aka Tom Pentz) a fellow Temple Owl decided to throw a block party, a tradition heralded deep in the blood of Philadelphians. He closed down a block, dragged out a massive set of speakers, invited plenty of friends, added drinks and shenanigan’s and BOOM – the Mad Decent Block Party was born. These home-spun block parties erupted and by 2010 the Philly tradition spread across the country growing into what it is today. Watch this recap video to get a taste:
Then lace-up your best kicks, grab a Wiz with at Ishkabibble’s, a cherry water ice at Rita’s and head on over to the Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing @ 3:00 PM August 8th to see Diplo, Dillon Francis, Dirty South, DJ Sega, DJ Snake, Flosstradamus, Mike Taylor, Swizzymack and Vic Mensa at the 2014 Mad Decent Block Party.
