This summer, Mad Decent is bringing the fifth installment of their cross-country Block Party series to a brand new block. In addition to returning to New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, the Diplo-helmed label has announced plans to kick off the proceedings — with help from Puma, Red Bull, Heineken and SPIN — in Toronto on July 28. Each day will feature a new lineup and a host of surprise guests in every city they visit. Admission is free, and delicious eats and carnival games abound. Below, check out details on the forthcoming dates in Toronto (including set times), NYC and Philly, as well as confirmed locations for parties in Chicago and Los Angeles.
