Mad Decent Block Party is celebrating the 10th anniversary this summer, but maybe not in the way you’d expect.
The 2017 edition of the touring pop-up festival will be limited to two stops, one in Philadelphia on Friday 7th July and the other in Colorado on Sunday 3rd September.
As a result of an oversaturated market, the organisers are pulling back considerably from their 15-tour run in 2016.
Major Lazer decided to surprise release a new EP this week. Entitled ‘Know No Better’, the six-track release shares the name of the lauded Travis Scott-featuring single.
The group’s first extended effort since 2015’s ‘Peace Is The Mission’, it’s 19-minutes of run time is packed with talent. Sean Paul, Busy Signal, Quavo, Nasty_C and Jidenna are just a few that were tapped by Diplo and co. to assist on their fresh offering.

The track, taken for Major Lazer’s massive album ‘Peace Is The Mission’, was released in March 2015 — almost exactly two years ago to the day.
