Following the tragedy that took place at Mad Decent Block Party’s Washington DC installment, it appears that the touring festival is cracking down on what you can and cannot bring to the one day event. The list doesn’t particularly stand out other than for a few items, mainly the fact that Kandi, the ubiquitous rave apparel, isn’t allowed at the venue. Diplo has received a fair share of criticism on the matter, to which he replied with the following:
i don’t got nothing but love 4 u and your kandi i just want to take steps to make sure everyone is there 100% for the music. not other stuff
