Diplo has announced the first ever Mad Decent Beach Party will take place in Riviera Maya, Mexico from 16th-19th February 2017.
Taking over the Barceló Maya Beach Resort on the country's stunning Caribbean coast, the event will offer four days of sun, sea, sand and, of course, the chance to hear some of the world's top dance acts.
“I've been waiting all year to play this party with my friends and create the utopian DJ world on the beach we all dreamed of. Lots of festivals bring you to a big tent with a DJ or a band, but this one brings you to the beaches, caves and the Caribbean atmosphere with the best DJs in the world,” says Diplo.
Arranged more like an all-inclusive holiday than a festival, the Mad Decent Beach Party will also provide transfers to and from Cancun International Airport, hotel accommodation, and access to the resort's eight swimming pools, range of restaurants and bars, tennis courts, mini golf, bowling alley, casino and shops. Plus food and drink is all included within the price of the ticket!
Dan Berkowitz of CID Presents, who will be running the party in conjunction with Diplo, adds: “Mad Decent fans are in for a getaway of a lifetime down in the beautiful Riviera Maya. We can’t wait to treat them to this fully immersive vacation, while showcasing some of their favorite artists.”
The line-up is set to be announced 27th July, with tickets going on sale from 2nd August at 1pm ET. Head to the website for more details.
