Gary Richards, famed producer of the ever-expanding HARD events, has confirmed the much-anticipated line-up for the fourth annual HARD Summer Music Festival in downtown Los Angeles on August 6th. All-star headliners include Armand Van Helden & A-Trak’s runaway party machine DUCK SAUCE, German Electro Wunderkind BOYS NOIZE, the funky romance of CHROMEO, tech-savvy rock duo RATATAT, newcomer dubstep star SKRILLEX, explosive rap collective ODD FUTURE, and the DFA TENT featuring JAMES MURPHY and PAT MAHONEY of LCD Soundsystem.
Music fans will be able to choose from four massive international performance areas, featuring DIGITALISM (live), JACK BEATS, KARLSSON & WINNBERG OF MIIKE SNOW (dj set), CASPA, NERO, NOISIA, EMALKAY, CARTE BLANCHE (live debut feat DJ MEHDI & RITON), and the US debut of Busy P and So Me’s BUSY PICTIONARY. Additionally HOLY GHOST! (live), GESAFFELSTEIN, GASLAMP KILLER, NADASTROM, JUAN MACLEAN (dj set), SHIT ROBOT, STILL GOING, ACID JACKS, and DILLON FRANCIS will continue HARD’s reputation of introducing emerging talent to a diverse, energized audience.
Following 2010’s HARD Summer Music Festival (dubbed “the safest place on earth” in the LA Times) HARD returns to the picturesque Los Angeles State Historic Park. With an additional stage and longer hours (until 2 AM) to provide the highest potential of entertainment, the festival will prove to be the best yet.
