Local Calgary community association worried about the Mad Decent Block Party

Mad Decent Block Party Calgary

As reported by CTV News:

"Residents of the nearby communities of Castleridge, Falconridge, and Martindale are worried the family oriented park won't be able to handle a festival the size of Mad Decent.  Marc Langlois, with the Falconridge-Castleridge Community Association, says the community was not consulted when plans for the outdoor concert was approved.

"The biggest worry is the after effect," says Langlois.  "What happens when the thing shuts down after eleven o'clock? If there's 4,000 people coming out of here where are they going to go?"   


Union Events, the organizers behind the MDBP in Calgary, will be sending out flyers that will clearly indicate "times, security and traffic plans" to all houses within the vicinity of the event this week. Hopefully that will help clear up any concerns that Marc Langlois and the Falconridge-Castleridge Community Association may have.

The lineup for Calgary's Mad Decent Block Party is absolutely phenomenal with artists like Major Lazer, Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, Big Gigantic and more booked for the July 19th event at Prairie Winds Park.
