Summerfest at Henry Maier Festival Park

Diplo, also known as Thomas Wesley Pentz, is considered one of the most dynamic forces in music today. In 2004, Pentz cemented himself as a full-fledged artist through his debut album, "Florida.” Diplo worked with M.I.A. on her mixtape, first and second albums, eventually creating the Grammy nominated track "Paper Planes" in 2007, which hit No. 4 on the U.S. Hot 100 Chart and has sold more than 3 million copies. In 2005, Diplo founded label/culture lab Mad Decent to serve as a platform for showcasing the myriad of fascinating sounds Pentz encounters while touring the world. After multiple Grammy nominations, including Producer of the Year, and being crowned the #1 most streamed artist on Soundcloud for 2013, Beyoncé's "Run the World" sampled Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor" and sold over a million copies, cementing Diplo's place in the pop world.
