Hope you’re ready for one of the biggest parties of the year, because the Mad Decent Block Party 2013 lineup has just been announced! The festival was recently under major fire for becoming a ticketed event this year, charging concertgoers $20 for early bird tickets and $30 for regular admission, when it had been free all previous years. Festival organizers took to their official Facebook page to placate disgruntled patrons:
“The Block Parties cost money now because they are at bigger venues with bigger acts and more production involved. And in an effort to make sure that everyone who wants to go to the Block Parties will gain smooth and guaranteed entry, the best solution was to make the events ticketed while keeping the tickets as inexpensive as possible.”
The festival also announced that they would expand their party to 13 cities, also explaining the rising costs. After early bird tickets sold out before the lineup was even announced, it is finally here:
