The 50 Coolest People at Mad Decent Block Party 2016
The throng at this year's Mad Decent Block Party at Rawhide in Chandler.
Electronic dance music fandom is nothing if not diverse. And we witnessed this fact firsthand during the Mad Decent Block Party’s recent stop in the Valley this past weekend.
Over the course of back-to-back nights, we encountered EDM fans of every shape, size, and description. Rave kids and club junkies? Of course. Bare-chested bros and bikini-wearing ladies? Most definitely. Rager fiends, party monsters, and costume-clad characters? Them, too.
Thousands upon thousands of dance music aficionados were in attendance at the event, many of whom caught our attention, brought a smile to our faces with their antics, or were just memorable in general.
Here’s a look at the coolest Block Party attendees that we encountered.
