Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Party is always a blast, and this year was no exception. We caught the Colorado stop of the tour at Red Rocks that featured Slumberjack, Valentino Khan, Cheat Codes, Alison Wonderland, Cashmere Cat, and of course, Major Lazer to close out the night. There was ups and downs, and we have our personal preferences (Alison Wonderland killed it) but overall Major Lazer reminded everyone whose show it really was, with a huge display of lights, LED screens, dancers, cannons, money throwing and other debauchery we’ve come to expect from Diplo and his crew. Check out the mayhem if you missed it, or catch the block party in your city. Images captured by Blake Jackson.
