Hard Summer fest is back, this time as a two-day event, August 3-4, at Los Angeles State Historic Park.

The organizers were kind enough to share the line-up with West Coast Sound before anyone else. The EDM-focused party is headlined by this dude with a weird haircut you may have heard of named Skrillex, as well as Bloc Party, Miike Snow (live), Boys Noize, Bloody Beetroots (DJ set), Nero (Live), Squarepusher, and A-Trak. There's some serious hip-hop talent on the bill as well, including Danny Brown, Action Bronson, and Mr. Muthafuckin' Exquire.

The full slate of scheduled performers is below.

  • Air Guitar Championship Semifinals @ The Troubadour
    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
