crystalcastles470

You’ve likely heard of them and now prepare to get to know them well in a city near you this summer as HARD officially announces the launch of the HARD Summer Tour! HARD is known for bringing some of the biggest names in the electronic, dance, hip-hop and rock scenes together under one roof and this summer will be no different with Crystal Castles, Rusko, Sinden and Destructo. Beginning August 6th, the twelve city tour lineup kicks off in Oakland, CA and hits LA, Denver, Austin, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, Philly, DC, New York, and closes on August 22nd in Baltimore.

Toronto underground dance-punk duo Crystal Castles have been heralded by press as icons to their generation. HARD Summer tour will see them amping up a live show that made them infamous with new music from their upcoming summer album on Fiction/Lies. Sharing the stage will be the multi-tasking UK Dubstep producer, Rusko. Beyond his own debut release of O.M.G.! coming on Mad Decent/Downtown in May, Rusko has logged time already this year producing songs for the upcoming M.I.A. Album, touring with Major Lazer and is the first European producer to work with Gucci Mane! Alongside these cultural phenoms will be fellow UK producer Sinden and HARD‘s very own Destructo, both names to watch in 2010.

HARD has made a name in Los Angeles as the premiere festival to see some of the best in the underground and in 2009 took to the streets of New York to show how California gets it done. With the success of HARD LA and HARD NYC and now the highly anticipated HARD LA M.I.A & HARD NYC M.I.A. this July, HARD Summer Tour will be THE show to be at this summer!

Tickets are up for grabs starting Tuesday, April 6th. For more information on where to purchase and event info, go to www.hardfest.com
