Can you believe that in all his travels Diplo only came to Pakistan for the first time in 2016? He gave a special concert in capital city Islamabad alongside his buddy Elliphant and local-born musicians Adil Omar and Talal Qureshi. That was back in February, and he must have had a good time, because he's coming back two years later -- and this time, he's bringing the whole crew.

The Mad Decent Block Party will make its Pakistani debut in February of 2018. No word yet who will be on the bill, though he did tag Omar and Qureshi again in the tweet. Diplo announced the upcoming showcase on Twitter in a video you can see below. 

Check out a pic of Diplo and his pals standing in front of the huge, appreciative Pakistani crowd from 2016 below. You can also see a clip from the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad where Diplo greets his Pakistani fans and gives them some music-making advice. No further details have been revealed, but with the festival less than two months away, keep your eyes peeled for more info.
