On Friday, August 8th the Mad Decent Block Party lands back in Philadelphia.

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:
