Vegas overpaid for Ed Banger so they wouldnt do HARD. But HARD doesnt need them, and I bet you they still do somethign here in L.a.

Wheres the beef?
08-18-2008, 10:22 PM
Yeah HARD way better than this.

So apparently Samantha Ronson is playing too.

So is anyone going to try to go to this and Hard?

I was considering it...

I live in Vegas so both for me.

Does anyone have any idea who is organizing this thing, because I have seen zero advertising. They need a fucking web site, street team, some goddamn ads.

The promoters on this thing are terrible. The site is down, the myspace page is private and there is almost no press.

It says it's presented by Art of Dance who I have never heard of.

I did see a billing that said MSTKRFT plus guests. I'm wondering who their guests will be.

It also says it's an official ed banger party...and it goes from 10 pm to 7 am which is good.

And that promoters are out of Amsterdam Holland.

And it's a 13,000 person capacity.

One major plus to a show in Vegas that some in Cali forget...no last call.

At the last Hard they had stopped serving drinks while MSTRKRFT was still on and long before Beetroots. I wasn't quite as hyphey as I wanted to be for them.

Are you in Vegas ardent?

Ardentbiscuit
08-21-2008, 07:51 PM
I'm in LA but I was thinking of going to both and then stay at the Orleans.

The beauty of the Orleans is that it's a hotel and I can stay there, no last call, until 7 am until 4, etc.

But I want to try to do both.

Hmm.. This event has definitely grown, I'll be in Vegas for Halloween so I'll be checking this out.


..Haha..I actually used to bartend at the Orleans, so this kind of shit being booked there is actually pretty surreal.

Justice dj set added to HARD haunted mansion one night before this "official" Ed Banger party.

Pretty sure that guarantees we get Justice in Vegas also.

I have a question, on a few of the lines it says and more...do we know the rest of the acts/djs booked yet??

I saw MSTRKRFT billed as them plus guests...so who are the guests?

Also, one site showed Samantha Ronson playing, is that true...

Thanks and hopefully the promoters will read this again.

I think it's probably the cats they have with them on the fist tour. They usually tour with L.A. Riots and Felix Cartal.

Edit: I just remembered that A-Trak was at HARD NYE and killed it, he has the sickest remixes. awesome.

Just got back from Vegas, I stopped by the Fabulous.. Good times

I showed up around 2ish, missing Ed Banger and Crystal Castles, which really wasn't that fucking big of a deal to me.

The venue was packed and I was generally stoked not being surrounded with candy ravers, it was a nice balance of young and old for an 18+ event. I'd say almost 1/2 the crowd were in costumes, and there was generally a good vibe all night. Mstrkrft had the party going on the outdoor stage until local sound complaints shut their set down around 3:30a, that was the lowpoint of the night. Armin Van Buuren was solid, Deadmau5 rocked it for 2 hours and Mobius8 was sick..
