The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival that was supposed to happen at the Gilette Stadium has suddenly been cancelled. The event was cancelled less than two weeks before it was set to take place and obviously it caused resentment. The reason for cancelling the event was that it got “impossible to hold the event as they had envisioned.”
Unfortunately, putting this event on in the way that it was envisioned has become impossible, due to circumstances beyond our control.
They released the news of the cancellation on their official Instagram page.

The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival, set for July 20th and 21st, in Foxborough, MA, has been cancelled. Unfortunately, putting this event on in the way that it was envisioned has become impossible, due to circumstances beyond our control. All parties involved have agreed that moving forward would be a disservice to fans and artists alike, and cancellation is in everyone's best interest. Front Gate Tickets will be issuing refunds to all fans who purchased a ticket. The refund will be credited to the original method of payment used at the time of purchase. Refunds will be processed on, or before, Friday, July 12th. Please allow 7-10 days after processing for the refund to be reflected on your statement.
Mad Decent Block Party Festival details
The Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival was a much-awaited event. It was going to feature top DJs from around the world along with hip-hop acts. The Festival was also going to have a go-kart course, paintball, and the “world’s largest moon bounce,” as promised by the organisers.
Some of the artists lined up to perform were Billie Eilish, G-Eazy, REZZ Dillon Francis, etc. The Mad Decent label owner Diplo himself was going to perform with Major Lazer. So much was planned and promised but it is unfortunately not going to work out.
With just two weeks remaining for the Festival, a lot of tickets were sold out. This obviously caused a lot of disappointment among the fans. Fans blasted out their anger on Twitter with reasonable arguments.

The organisers promised a refund for all tickets but that wasn’t all the fans spent. Some fans were flying in from different places, especially for the event. The organisers couldn’t possibly take care of these people’s flights and hotel tickets as one fan mentioned.
Some fans tried to joke about the whole thing saying this was very similar to the case with the Fyre Festival.
