HARD LA Festival feat. MIA, Die Antwoord Canceled

Posted by Amoebite, July 12, 2010 05:13pm | Post a Comment
Just Announced: The HARD LA show featuring MIA, N*E*R*D*, Die Antwoord, and Flying Lotus on Sat July 17 has been canceled. From their website:
Hard Fest Flyer

HARD LA M.I.A. this Saturday July 17th has been canceled, but not due to the lack of support or the full approval from the personnel at the City of Los Angeles and California State Parks, who have signed off on our comprehensive security plan. We have decided to instead produce one massive event on August 7th at the same amazing location, the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown Los Angeles.

We continue to work closely with LAFD, LAPD, City of Los Angeles, and California State Parks, who c
ontinue to support all HARD events and have approved our plan to operate the HARD SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL at the Los Angeles State Historic Park on August 7th, 2010 featuring Soulwax, Crystal Castles, Major Lazer, Erol Alkan, Diplo, Digitalism and more.

Tickets for HARD LA M.I.A. are automatically valid for the HARD SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL. Refund information will be posted July 13th.

We're not yet sure what the HARD Summer Music Festival lineup will look like with this change -- will some of the artists from HARD LA be added to the August date? We also do not know why Saturday's show was canceled. Security concerns? Low ticket sales? Hopefully we'll have more information soon. What's fairly certain is that South African sensation Die Antwoord will likely not be at the August show, which is a darn shame.

BUT, the good news is Die Antwoord has scheduled a show for Sat, July 17 at the El Rey in Los Angeles. Get your tickets here before they're sold out!

Flying Lotus, Whose Amoeba Hollywood Instore Happens Today (Thursday), is Flying All the Way to the Top With Cosmogramma!

Flying Lotus
What an amazing and well-deserved rise to fame and recognition it has been for the super-gifted Los Angeles producer/musician Flying Lotus, who performs for free at 7pm tonight (May 6th) at Amoeba Music Hollywood in support of his highly recommended brand new album Cosmogramma.

Only a matter of years ago the now globally respected FlyLo (as he is fondly known by fans, but was born  Steven Ellison 26 years ago) was clocking hours as an intern at Stones Throw Records and, in between doing mundane mail room chores, was just trying to get people to listen to his demo instrumental hip-hop productions.

Fast forward to 2010 and he has just completed a US tour (that culminated in a celebrated Coachella set) opening for Thom Yorke's Atoms For Peace. Yorke, a major fan, personally chose FlyLo for the much coveted opening act slot just as he had hand-picked another California producer, DJ Shadow, to open for Radiohead many years back. Not only that, but Yorke also supplies guest vocals on Cosmogramma on one of the album's many jaw-droppingly brilliant tracks. The album, the artist's fourth release and his third for the respected Warp Records label (following 2008's Los Angeles & the previous year's the Reset EP -- his 2006 debut full-length was 1983 on Plug Research), was released on Tuesday this week Stateside (Monday in the UK). And if you don't already have it, go cop it right now at Amoeba. Better still, if you are in Southern Cali today, head over to the Amoeba on Sunset for the instore so that a year and more from now you can gloat to friends, "Oh yeah. I seen em play at Amoeba for free back in the day!"
