The lineup for HARD Summer 2013 is out!
Earlier today, HARD EVENTS, the company responsible for Day of the Dead and Holy Ship, announced the full line-up for this year’s edition of HARD SUMMER, Los Angeles’ biggest summertime music event. The festival returns to Los Angeles State Historic Park on Saturday, August 3rd and Sunday, August 4 for it’s sixth edition.
Highlights of this year’s lineup include the only U.S. stop of the Ed Banger 10-Year Anniversary Tour with the Ed Banger 10th Anniversary Stage featuring Justice, Breakbot Live, BUSY.P Ed Banger Megamix, Feadz, Mr. Oizo, So Me, and special guest Brodinski. HARD SUMMER will also host the dirtybird Players Stage featuring Claude VonStroke and members of his dirtybird Records crew.
The lineup announcement comes complete with a specially produced trailer featuring the HARD SUMMER Dogs–over 25 playful pups styled after some favorite HARD SUMMER 2013 artists.
“Skrillex always calls his friends ‘dogs’ on Twitter,” explains trailer director Agata Alexander about the idea behind the video. “I figured it would be cool to take it literally. Many of these acts have signature looks so I thought it would be fun to adapt those traits into the canine world. When Dog Blood came along, it was just too perfect to ignore.”
Be sure to check out the trailer below and pick up your tickets to what’s surely going to be SoCal’s hottest summer festival!
