Mad Decent Beach Party was scheduled to take place over President’s Day weekend (February 18-20, 2017) in Riviera Maya, Mexico, but a suspicious turn of events has made the party a no-go. There was already a massive lineup, including Diplo, of course, in addition Dillon Francis and Zeds Dead.
In an attempt to make amends with fans who have already purchased their tickets and whatnot, Diplo’s Mad Decent is doing their utmost to at least make up for it financially. Mad Decent is not only refunding ticket prices, they’ll also be reimbursing airfare expenses.
So why go through all this effort to un-schedule the Mad Decent Beach Party? What happened? Unfortunately, MadDecent and promoter CID Presents released a statement that sounds like the two companies couldn’t get their acts together.
“The CID Presents team and Mad Decent crew are both committed to providing fans with stellar experiences, and after thorough consideration, we have realized we are not able to host the weekend in the exact style we are accustomed,” the statement reads. “Therefore, unfortunately we have decided to cancel this event.”Read more to get the rest of Mad Decent’s statement:
