This August signals the 10th anniversary for HARD Summer, which maintains its reputation for pushing boundaries and booking talent based on merit rather than an established following. Of particular interest this time is a sampling of the U.K.’s biggest grime stars: Skepta, JME, Ghetts and Madam X. The lineup also has its share of proven U.S. crowd-wowers: A-Trak, Cashmere Cat and Justice (doing a DJ set) on Saturday and Claude VonStroke, 12th Planet and Destructo (aka HARD founder Gary Richards) on Sunday. Special to this HARD will be a tribute to Mobb Deep’s recently deceased Prodigy; Snoop Dogg performing his groundbreaking debut, 1993’s
