Diplo\’s very own Mad Decent Block Party has released its North American tour dates for 2016. The Block Party will kick off in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on July 30th and eventually conclude in Los Angeles on October 1st after making 15 stops around the country.
The lineups for each Block Party are currently TBA. Tickets for the tour are on Mad Decent presale (password: MDBP2016). The general on-sale will start Friday May 6th at 10am CST.
It comes as a slight surprise that the Block Party is returning to Chicago this summer. In 2012, festival goers stampeded through the gates causing a two year hiatus of the Block Party in 2013 and 2014. Upon returning in 2015, Diplo claimed that the festival may not return in 2016 after Chicago city officials treated it \”like trash.\”
The Chicago stop of the Block Party will take place on August 21st at the FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island.
