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 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 continue 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
