HARD Summer 2012 Lineup
Wow. The HARD Summer Lineup is insane! At $133.78 for a two-day pass, this is by far the most bang for your buck this festival season. Unlike almost every other electronic dance festival in the US [save those targeted specifically towards bass music], HARD has stripped their bill of all the redundant house/trance headliners. Instead, they have chosen an eclectic selection of top techno, electro, dubstep, moombahton, and experimental producers.
Yes, Skrillex will be there, but it is acts like Buraka Som Sistema, Little Dragon, Nick Thayer, Bloc Party, Bootsy Collins & The Funk Unity Band, Squarepusher, Erol Alkan, Fake Blood, Breakbot, and Gesaffelstein that make this is concert you cannot miss. HARD CEO, Gary Richards (also known by his DJ moniker Destructo), stated in an interview with Magnetic Mag that:
If you have ever been to a HARD event then you know that it’s not your typical electronic music show. There is a genuine dedication to the music, the artists and the overall art that surrounds the electronic culture. The crowd is not concerned with bracelets or costumes but rather focus their attention toward new songs, the drops, talent and overall performance of the musicians. These musicians are revered as real artists with genuine talent… We’re not trying to be a rave for little kids, were trying to get people to pay attention to the music and focus on that.
Rather than going to see the same artists play the same songs you’ve heard hundreds of times, HARD offers you the chance to experience something completely new. If you can make it out to LA for the two-day electro extravaganza, I suggest you do so.
