Waiting to speak to Simian Mobile Disco backstage at the Hoxton, I got to meet Chris, Diplo‘s tour manager who gave me this pithy hair advice. “Dude, it’s like a mushroom cloud on the sides but I wanna see it more nuclear on the top! You need MORE volume!”

What a perfect way to lead into this huge announcement!! This summer marks the fifth installment of the incredibly successful cross-country phenomenon that is the MAD DECENT BLOCK PARTY, this year presented by Puma®. Tearing through the USA with stops in PhiladelphiaNew YorkChicagoLos Angeles and new addition Toronto Mad Decent is joining forces with PumaRed BullHeineken and SPIN to provide a day of musical performances with FREE admission, delicious food, carnival games and a party for families and club kids alike!
