Regrettfully, HARD has cancelled their LA festival this weekend at LA State Historic Park featuring M.I.A. and N.E.R.D, but this line-up in New York City is still going on as planned next Saturday, July 24th. But not to worry Los Angeles, the HARD Summer festival featuring Soulwax and Crystal Castles is still moving full steam ahead to be held at LA State Historic Park on Saturday, August 7th.
Here is the press release regarding the cancellation of HARD LA:
“LOS ANGELES —
HARD LA M.I.A. Saturday July 17th has been cancelled, but not due to the lack of support or the full approval from the personnel at the City of Los Angeles and California State Parks who have signed off on our comprehensive security plan. We have decided to instead produce one massive event on August 7th at the same amazing location, the Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown Los Angeles.
We continue to work closely with LAFD, LAPD, City of Los Angeles, and California State Parks who continue to support all HARD events and have approved our plan to operate the 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. HARD NYC M.I.A. in New York July 24 at Governors Island also continues as scheduled.”
See you all at HARD Summer!
