Photos: Mad Decent Block Party Hits Brooklyn, 8/9
On Sunday, August 9, 2015, Diplo and company landed at Coney Island's MCU Park for the second day of the two-day sold-out Brooklyn stop of the Mad Decent Block Party. Joining the famed Mad Decent label head was Skrillex for a Jack U performance, which has become a staple headlining act for many of North America's biggest festivals and events. As expected, the duo did have some tricks up their sleeves.
Their performance saw a special guest appearance by Vic Mensa for the track, "No Chill" (the Skrillex and Vic Mensa collaboration that will soon be receiving a live aftermovie filmed during the performance. You can catch a clip of this special guest appearance in the Tweet from Vic Mensa below). The duo would also feature Kiesza for "Take U There," Silento to perform his massive track, "Watch Me" (for those who don't know, the "whip and nae nae" song), and CL and OG Maco for "Doctor Pepper" throughout the set.
Also featured on this day of MDBP in Brooklyn were Gorgon City for a DJ set, Grandtheft, iLoveMakonnen, Knife Party, Party Favor, Tyler the Creator and What So Not, marking one of the tour's most star-studded lineups. However, the Mad Decent Block Party is just getting warmed up. Check out the remaining dates and lineups at the official Mad Decent Block Party website, and make sure not to miss out on one of the year's most exciting events.
