Hard Events got together a pack of stylish dogs – wearing leather jackets, chains, glasses and headphones – along with a kitten and a few ducks to announce Hard Summer’s 2013 lineup. Yes, Duck Sauce and Dog Blood will both be there, along with Knife Party and Justice.
Director Agata Alexander explains the idea behind the official festival trailer.
“Skrillex always calls his friends ‘dogs’ on Twitter. I figured it would be cool to take it literally. Many of these acts have signature looks so I thought it would be fun to adapt those traits into the canine world. When Dog Blood came along, it was just too perfect to ignore.”
The sixth annual festival is scheduled Aug. 3-4 at Los Angeles State Historic Park.
Knife Party, Duck Sauce and Dog Blood take the stage Saturday, Aug. 3 along with Flux Pavilion, Flying Lotus, 2 Chainz, SBTRKT, Disclosure, TNGHT, Tommy Trash, Kill The Noise, RL Grime, Alvin Risk, Just Blaze, Oliver, Destructo and more.
Justice (DJ set) tops the list Sunday, Aug. 4, which also features Bassnectar, Empire Of The Sun, Zedd, Crystal Castles, Baauer, Dillon Francis, Azealia Banks, Gesaffelstein, Mr. Oizo, Busy P, Flosstradamus, Breakbot, Claude VonStroke, Brodinski and more.
Tickets are on sale now.
