Festival Radar: HARD Summer
L.A. is gearing up for one of the biggest festivals of the summer!

Founded by Gary Richards in 2007, The HARD imprint has taken the concert and festival world by storm.  Starting out as a singular, but excellently curated NYE festival, HARD has grown into one of the largest concert brands working today.  Putting on dozens of shows and events each year, they continue their gnarly showings with this year's HARD Summer Festival, August 3-4, right in downtown Los Angeles.

This year's HARD Summer features some of the biggest names in EDM and rock, including Skrillex, Bloc Party, Boys Noize, Miike Snow, Nero, Bloody Beetroots, James Murphy, Squarepusher, Chromeo and more!

Here's the trailer for the 2011 HARD Summer Festival, just so you know what you have in store:
