Mad Decent Block Party This Saturday

Summer is winding down but the festival season is showing very little signs of slowing down. This weekend, there  are various conventions, food festivals and art exhibits throughout the city but only one festival is filled with great sounds, guaranteed to be a true party and, for the financially conscious, totally free.

Mad Decent Block Party 2011 is the be all, end all to musical parties/festivals this weekend. Featuring no less than 12 acts, this day-long festival is bringing forth some of the best sounds in music today in hip hop, rock and dance. This year's lineup includes the dance rock rhythms of Reptar, the experimental, Sci-Fi grooves of Bosco Delrey and the heavy Southern thump of Curren$y alongside DJ sets from Benzi, Kito and Dillon Francis. The last set of the night, at the moment, is still a mystery known only by Mad Decent and will be revealed tomorrow night. A list of the acts and their set times are listed below along with a couple of visual persuasions of why this is and will the event definitely worth attending this weekend.

All of this is set to take place in Wicker Park tomorrow afternoon on N. Milwaukee Ave between N. Western Ave to N. Oakley Ave with an opening set from Benzona at 1 p.m. The festival is free with via RVSP here. So...12 acts, an eclectic mix of talented artists and amazing sounds, all ages, a Saturday and it is free. Really, is there anything else that needs to be added to convince you to go? I think not. So get tomorrow afternoon and party with Mad Decent.
