Diplo has announced a new festival, The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party.
The LA-bred titan, who last week teased the return of the Major Lazer animated series, revealed the two day festival constitutes his label Mad Decent first serious foray into festivals, following their successful Mad decent Block Party event series, and the line-up illustrates Diplo's shared interest in electronic and hip hop artists.
Major Lazer, naturally, are headlining, with Baauer, Dillon Francis and Zeds Dead included in an intriguing electronic group, while Pusha T, Miguel and breakthrough star Billie Eilish stand out from a pretty exciting rap and R&B enclave. Check out the fulle line-up below.
With Diplo suggesting Major Lazer's next album will be their last, TSMUGMDBP (trying slurring that after a few drinks) might be one of the last opportunities to see the trio before their split.
The festival will take place at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, 20th-21st July, with tickets going on sale Friday April 10th 10am EST.
