HARD Summer set times announced

HARD Summer – the flagship event from the team at HARD Events – will take over L.A. State Historic Park on the weekend of August 3rd and 4th 2013, and now the set times are here. The party in downtown L.A. runs from midday to midnight across four stages, and now’s the time to map out your day (whether you’ll stick to those plans is another question).

Saturday’s major drawcards include Knife Party, the union of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden as Duck Sauce, and Skrillex and Boys Noize as Dog Blood. Over on Sunday, Empire Of The Sun and Bassnectar head it up alongside Justice.

HARD Summer prides itself on its undercard, too and there’s something for every persuasion. As ringleader Destructo put it to inthemix: “HARD is the anti-pop dance music thing that we do. We’re trying to bring new shit to people, and show them that there’s a lot more to EDM than the big commercial artists out there.” The line-up includes Flying Lotus, 2 Chainz, SBTRKT, Disclosure, TNGHT, Tommy Trash, RL Grime and Kill The Noise on Saturday, then Baauer, Dillon Francis, Crystal Castles, Flosstradamus and many more on Sunday. There’s also a Dirtybird Players stage led by Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin and J. Phlip. So, what are your must-sees?
