HARD LA has been officially cancelled as of yesterday and the reasoning behind it was due to all the security concerns that really had a lot of people worried especially after the EDC aftermath with a lot of attendees were sent to the hospital due to rioting. The festival was set to be held this Saturday, July 17th at the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown. Headlining this event was M.I.A, N.E.R.D and Die Antwoord but Die Antwoord is set to play a show this Saturday at the El Rey.
Due to events beyond our control, HARD LA M.I.A. July 17 has been cancelled. Thanks to the continued support of City of Los Angeles, LAPD, LAFD, and California State Parks 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 will continue as scheduled. Tickets for HARD LA M.I.A. are automatically valid for the HARD SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL. HARD will offer refund instructions July 13th via HARDFEST.com
