New HARD Summer Lineup Unveiled, Featuring Cancelled Acts from M.I.A. Fiasco
So, the new, amalgamated lineup for HARD Summer has been announced by beleaguered organizer Destructo (aka, Gary Richards). After the hasty, officially unexplained cancellation of the M.I.A.-led HARD, Richards tried to book some of the acts from the canceled show for the upcoming HARD Summer "festival" (as Magritte would say, "Ceci N'est Pas Une Rave").
Everyone's been asking about Sleigh Bells. Will they be here on August 7th?
Well, it seems they will not be playing at the upcoming HARD Summer. The highest-profile rescheduled names from HARD LA M.I.A. appear to be local staples Flying Lotus and the (Mother Fucking) Gaslamp Killer.
What do you think about the new lineup? Must-see or Meh?
