Diplo is an expert when it comes to throwing block parties and soon he’ll do it for a cause. For one of his upcoming bashes, dubbed as The Menagerie, the worldwide DJ/producer is giving back to the EDM community in a really big way.
In partnership with The Midway in San Francisco, Diplo is bringing a single-day, four-stage block party to the city — all to raise funds for art and sound camps. Opulent Temple, Camp Questionmark, Root Society, and Duck Pond are among those being recognized at the event.
Sound and art camps often provide experiences at music festivals that wouldn’t otherwise exist. Perhaps you’ve even stumbled upon one of these camps and thought to yourself — well isn’t this nice? Diplo has experienced some good times with these camps himself, as he seeks to raise money and help cultivate a more robust festival community.
On Saturday, July 6th, The Menagerie goes down at Michigan and Marin Streets. The block party includes two outdoor stages, and an area for Burning Man frequenters — the Dancetronauts, Rynobus, and Bounce Art Cars.
Phase one includes Diplo presenting “Higher Ground,” Mr. Carmack, Jonas Rathsman, Kenny Glassgow, Sharam, and Super Flu. Phase two has yet to be announced.
