Fox force five.
Tens of thousands of electronic dance music fans came to Rawhide in Chander on Friday, September 16, and Saturday, September 17, for the Mad Decent Block Party. And they came to rage, get wild, and go hard on back-to-back nights while DJs and EDM artists like Diplo, Dada Life, Bauuer, Grandtheft, and RL Grime performed. Here's a look at many of the colorful characters and interesting people that attended the event.
