Diplo's label Mad Decent has grown from just being an outlet to release new music for himself and a growing stable of artists - it has also become a global event promotions brand. This year marked the first time that Diplo's Mad Decent Block Party exited North America, taking place in several cities across India. Mad Decent also launched its own boat party and with a new announcement, it looks to keep the tropical, beach theme going with the Mad Decent Beach Party. The four day event will take place in 2017 in Mexico.
Occurring over President's Day Weekend in 2017, Feb. 16-20, Diplo will bring his Mad Decent crew down to Mexico for a long weekend of debauchery in the sun. It will take place on Riviera Maya on the coastlines of the Yucatan Peninsula.
Like you are vacationing in any Mexican resort designed to accommodate Westerners, the ticket is all-inclusive with food and drinks included. There is more than just music however. According to the official Facebook event listing, fans will be able to explore off-site and go on ATV rides, zip lines, Catamaran trips and even scuba diving.
The main attraction will be on the beach, just feet from the ocean where the artists chosen by Diplo and Mad Decent will be performing.
Head to the Mad Decent Beach Party website to sign up for a mailing list for first updates.
Mad Decent has already spread their wings under the guise of Diplo's growing stardom into a large independent dance and hip-hop label. Hosting its own land-based festival is just the latest step in that growth.
