Mad Decent Block Party

Please note: This event has already occurred.
For the second year, producer-DJ Diplo is returning to Merriweather with a ratpack of noisy, exhilaratingly rude boys and girls of electronic music, and this summer's bill is gearing up to be even more compelling. Besides Diplo, whose own mixes are influenced by the sounds of Brazilian favelas, expect dubsteppers Flux Pavilion as well as Sleigh Bells, the duo of Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss, whose menacing, atonal pop is precisely the stuff that has kids cranking the volume. (With Dillon Francis, Trippy Turtle, Wave Racer and Wolfgang Gartner.)
