Los Angeles' largest music event, HARD Summer Music Festival, is coming back bigger than ever for its 7th year on August 2nd and 3rd. Last year's HARD Summer, which took place at the Los Angeles State Historic Park, saw over 70,000 fans come out to see the cream of the electronic and hip-hop music crop perform, including Bassnectar, Baauer, Empire of the Sun, Knife Party, 2 Chainz, Zedd, Duck Sauce, and Justice.
The incredibly talented 17-year-old Dutch import, Martin Garrix, blew the speakers and the crowd away at Pacha NYC on Friday, January 31st. It was clear from the start that despite his young age, Garrix is capable of playing like the veteran DJs. If there's one thing Martin Garrix was able to achieve throughout his set, it was his fresh take on mixing and matching tunes on the deck. Unveiling several new remixes to hit tracks, Garrix was able to slaughter his set with finesse and ease.
He surged the crowd with major energy with his opening track, 'Animals,' which you all probably think is the most obvious choice. But listen, it was a remix like no other. It was a thumping, wild take on the already popular track. It was a great first impression to make on the crowd and soon after his wild remix of 'Animals,' he eased into Knife Party's edgy tune, 'Antidote.'

The cancellation of Day 3 of Electric Zoo left festival goers stumped as they tried to come up with ways to savor the remainder of their weekend. With the official after parties selling out, there were many fans left with nothing to do. However, a few additional artists scrambled to throw together last minute gigs to give Electric Zoo fans a place to spend their Sunday evening. One of the surprise shows had a lineup that was bound to be madness, including: Mark Instinct, KDrew, Pegboard Nerds, Dank, and Subset. Easily the craziest lineup of the evening, there were many who weren’t about to miss out on the event. We had a chance to talk with Alex and Michael, also known as the duo, Pegboard Nerds, earlier that evening before the show. We asked about their latest EP, their tour, and their opinions on the cancellation of Day 3.
