The party never stops in the sunshine state! This summer, fellow Cavaliers as well as hundreds of other people across the United States attended one of the craziest concerts of the year: the Mad Decent Block Party in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Since 2008, the label created by a world famous DJ and producer known as Diplo has quickly become so popular that it has become a multi-city tour, the Mad Decent Block Party, throughout the United States.

This wild event blasts its speakers with Dubstep, Electro, Tropical House and much more. Even though this function isn’t as large as Ultra Music Festival, famous DJs such as Jack Ü, Major Lazer and Zeds Dead play at the block party every year.

“Junior year was really hectic, but it was exciting at the same time because it meant that college was approaching, which is something that I’ve been looking forward to my entire life. I guess you could use familiar words to describe Mad Decent, because yes, it was a hot and sweaty mess, but it was also an extremely uplifting experience.””

— said senior Gaby Martinez.

Next summer if you’re up for an insane and unforgettable experience, the Mad Decent Block Party is the perfect event for you. This concert truly brings people together, as well as giving individuals the opportunity to express themselves with any dance move they can do!
