Mad Decent Block Party

One of the most basic things to know about me is the fact that I love music. Anything and everything that has to do with music, I enjoy. This past weekend I went to the Mad Decent Block Party here in Dallas, TX. For those who don’t know what this block party is all about… it is basically an outside concert party with Electronic Dance Music (EDM). The Mad Decent record label organizes it and different artists travel around the U.S. and Canada to play their music. I was really excited to attend this event, because of three major DJs who were playing that day: Diplo, Dillon Francis, and Major Lazer. About a month ago I saw Diplo play live and the show was amazing!

I started getting more into EDM my freshman year of college. A lot of my friends started playing as DJs back when I was in high school and ever since then I got into this kind of music. It’s a totally different scenario from other type of music festivals. People who go to these events dress up in all kinds of different outfits. You might see people wearing panda suits or girls wearing colorful furry boots. When you walk in to one of these festivals, you know you’re not being judged. People expect to see neon skirts and weird costumes, which is one of things I like about it.

So, if you’re someone who enjoys EDM, I would highly recommend going to Mad Decent if you get the chance. I’ll leave you with some of the pictures I took that day and some other ones from the DJs I previously mentioned, enjoy!
