Dan Deacon to join Diplo at this year’s Mad Decent Block Party
In years past, the Mad Decent Block Party, the annual concert tour put on by producer Diplo’s imprint, has featured the dancehall-charged music of Major Lazer, Canadian dubstep duo Zeds Dead, and oddball rap sensation Riff Raff on its lineup card when it stopped at Merriweather Post Pavilion. You can now add local electronic maestro Dan Deacon to that list.
Along with Deacon, the show, scheduled for Aug. 1 at Merriweather, also includes producer Dillon Francis, dubstep DJ Flux Pavilion, noisy indie rockers Sleigh Bells, something called Trippy Turtle, Aussie producer Wave Racer, and Diplo, natch.
Pre sale tickets are available now.
