This Raging Summer 

Sunday at 10:59PM on April 24, 2011

Summer is the season that speaks of soft-living. Sure we still go about generating those TPS reports to keep the flow of fusion tacos coming to the table but summer’s that time of year when the heat kind of gets us easing up a bit and not take things quite so seriously—heck even roaming bears are known to cut the errant human they meet a chance break because the living’s good and they’re too full of berries to care. Only thing hard about summer is not getting those lengthy summer breaks and vacations back from our schooldays to enjoy the swell sunny days. But amidst the laidback attitude of rising temperatures there is one constant of hardness that lingers to keep you on your dance-loving feet—the HARD Summer Music Festival.


This August 6th, trade in your ice cream cone for a tangy helping of Duck Sauce and their insanely catchy grooves at the Los Angeles State Historic Park for the HARD Summer Music Festival. Joining the festive fray are Boys Noize, Chromeo, Ratatat, Skrillex, Odd Future, James Murphy and Pat Mahoney (DFA tent with special disco version), Digitalism, Jack Beats, Nero, Caspa, Carte Blanche (featuring DJ Mehdi & Riton), Busy Pictionary (featuring Busy P & So Me), Holy Ghost!, Karlsson & Winnberg of Miike Snow, Noisia, Emalkay, Gessafelstein, Gaslamp Killer, Destructo, Juan MacLean, Shit Robot, Still Going, Nadastrom, Dillion Francis, Acid Jacks, and many more! Talent is spread out among four stages amidst an industrial town’s little slice of recreational heaven for your hard-partying summer pleasure. Grab tickets while you still can because HARD will sell out fast!
