Were you there? Here’s our short review of the event.

The highlight performance of the night had to have been Busy P’s kick-off set on the main stage. Even he was shocked at how huge of a turnout he had at 8PM. Crystal Castles followed with an.. uh… interesting set laced with a touch of intentional audio feedback and static…. READ IT

Back from Hard Summer Festival…

Posted on 09 August 2009 by shaunt

And we’re back from Hard Summer Festival. Yes, at this exact moment Tiga should technically be finishing his set. But that is not the case.

First of all, let me start with a quick (…very quick) review of the evening:
The highlight performance of the night had to have been Busy P’s kick-off set on the main stage. Even he was shocked at how huge of a turnout he had at 8PM. Crystal Castles followed with an.. uh… interesting set laced with a touch of intentional audio feedback and static. That’s when it got crazy. Douchebag raver kids started jumping off the second level into the pit. Even after countless warnings this shit continued until the fire marshall decided to boot everyone out. It wasn’t official until the special tactics unit of the LAPD made an appearance. What an evening it was indeed.

Honestly though, i have to hand it to the HARD people for putting on such a [potentially] epic event. The production and lighting (especially downstairs in the underground) was absolutely stunning. It’s so unfortunate these kids did what they did at the expense of the crowd at large. Oh well. Shit happens… Either way, we will have our photos up (at least the ones we managed to snag in the short period of time) probably tomorrow. HARD Summer photos are now up HERE.

A clip from Busy P’s blog:
I  am so sorry for what happened last night at HARD in L.A Don’t really know what went wrong, but all i know is that the amazing crowd was ready to party, so do i. I feel lucky to have been the only DJ to perform that night, i ended up my set with Beastie Boys “Fight for Your Right (To Party!)” just before Crystal Castles short live show, what a weird sign! The rest of the line up was insane, Tiga, A-Trak, Chromeo, Crookes… were all ready to rumble too.
Let’s hope L.A will get another massive event like this soon.

Don’t be discouraged. I suppose it’s not a good time to bring it up right now, but stay tuned for info about HARD Haunted Mansion as it will not disappoint. The party will go on.

A message from the good people at HARD:
We are terribly sorry. LAFD and Inglewood PD made the decision to shut down the event tonight. There are many questions to answer; rest assured you will be receiving your refunds. Please check back soon for more details. The show must go on…

Update: HARD HAUNTED MANSION Line-Up
