Mad Decent Block Party

[DJ] SATURDAY, JULY 20

Here’s a good excuse to sample the offerings of producer Diplo’s genre-spanning indie label, Mad Decent. The Block Party tour is a Lollapalooza-ish trek of DJs hitting different cities, and Las Vegas is the only city on the 13-date trek to feature a solo Diplo set. Of course, this comes at the expense of a set by his more popular DJ act, Major Lazer, who just played EDC and is typically contracted to play Light Group venues. Another down side: The normally cheap event is more expensive in Las Vegas — however, our edition, unlike the others, will be staged at a pool and not some amphitheatre. With Zed’s Dead, Dillon Francis and five other acts. 12 p.m.; Encore Beach Club, www.maddecentblockparty.com, $42-$77 (online presale)
