Diplo‘s Mad Decent Block Party graced the City of Brotherly Love on Saturday, August 13th, at Festival Pier.

The event – which was originally housed on an actual block on 12th Street near Spring Garden – brought powerhouse DJs such as Baauer, Party Favor, Valentino Khan and Diplo himself, as well as up-and-comers Herobust, Slushii and Wax Motif.

Mad Decent is the Philadelphia-founded record label spearheaded by Diplo, boasting artists like Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, Major Lazer, Yellow Claw and Sean Paul. The label has even worked with Snoop Dogg. Every summer, the Block Party bounces from city to city, from July through October, ending this year in Los Angeles.
