Diplo recently announced he’s planting his beloved Mad Decent Block Party tour concept in Foxborough, Mass., and turning it into a two-day staidum takeover event, but why is he doing it in Patriot Country? Well, he got with reigning Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman, of the six-time NFL champion New England Patriots, to explain it.
The humurous video breaks down all the reasons why the first-ever Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival belongs in Gilette Stadium and Patriot Place Festival Grounds, and what it’s going to do to make use of the grounds. The Mad Decent Block Party was never just about music, so the Super Mega Ultra Giant edition will feature the world’s largest bounce house, K1 go-kart racing and paint ball, among other things, cheifly top-tier musical talent across the dance, pop and hip-hop spectrum.
Headline performers include Diplo’s super trio Major Lazer, as well as “Bad Guy” Billie Eilish, pop rapper G-Eazy, and R&B sex icon Miguel. There are a lot of rappers on the lineup, including A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Kodak Black, Pusha T and City Girls. Of course, electronic dance is best represented, with sets from Diplo’s longtime pal Dillon Francis, Rezz, RL Grime, Zeds Dead, Chris Lake and more. All this across three colorful stages.
