Mad Decent's Block Party is returning for its sixth installment this summer, and the traveling showcase promises sets from Diplo and Major Lazer, Baauer, Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, RiFF RAFF, Flosstradamus, SBTRKT, Matt & Kim, RL Grime, Griz, and more. 

The mobile festival will make stops in 13 cities, starting with a July 19 gig in Calgary, Alberta, and ending with a September 15 show in San Diego. In between those dates, the Diplo-hosted event will set up camp in Las Vegas, Toronto, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta, Brooklyn, Dallas, Detroit, New Braunfels, and Los Angeles. Each concert will boast a different lineup, with additional artists set to be announced in the coming weeks.

Unlike past years, Mad Decent Block Party 2013 will not be free. It should be noted that Baauer recently told the Huffington Post that before "Harlem Shake" conquered the world, the label was in danger of going under. "Honestly, that record was the thing that saved the label, because a year ago we were going to fold because we couldn't figure out how to make money," he said. "Then we just started giving music out for free and it worked out."
