I mean, Crookers Vs Armin Van Beurin.

Haven't heard destructo...

great mixes... get free ones on the HARD site
he's doing HARDsummer also...

if halloween is an exact copy of hardsummer, except we get Deadmau5 and Fake Blood instead of Underworld & Chromeo, i'll be a very very happy man!

I wonder who they have on the line up? I'm looking at the ticket prices...

Hard Summer VIP is $125

Hard Summer advanced prices are $55, $60, $65.

Hard Haunted Mansion VIP is $145

Hard Haunted Mansion advanced prices are $60, $65, $70.

Hmm, does this mean they booked somebody bigger than Underworld or they need money?

Haunted Mansion was a big success for the HARD people. Bigger prices for the prestige of the last year's lineup and the fact that October 31st falls on a Saturday night.

I thought EDC Saturday was more expensive because there were more stages and acts. And it ends at 4 AM instead of 2 AM.

you mean like HARD NYE, Together As One, and Giant Maximus?

i think holidays like halloween and new year's are exempt...

i wouldn't call any multi-stage massive at an arena with 10,000+ people a "mini" though, even if they aren't EDC (the largest in the country), they are still massives...

TAO is a Go Vetnures & Insomniac event not just one of them, they have always been the 2 biggest promotion companys in LA and then on new years eve they come together for one event so stands the name Together as One. Now they do things together more often but this was way back when this all happened. HARD is slowly getting bigger and bigger as a promotion company but i doubt they will ever be as big as Insomniac, maybe Go Ventures but not Insomniac. I think it is dumb for both of them to have it on the same day but i knew it was going to happen when i saw halloween was on a saturday this year. Go Ventures has the rights to the Colliseum and Sports Arena for events like that, which is why HARD will never be at either of those venues or any other event like that for that matter. I was suprised the first year EDC was there but it's because saturday night sessions gets a stage now. I hope hard brings it for halloween though, i think tickets sales will be a little lower on both ends.

Just an fyi. There are quite a few folks that promote and organize w/ Insomniac (Bassrush in particular) that also help out with HARD. There's plenty of overlapping and they are definitely all down with each other and help each other to be successful. The more good, professionally thrown, EDM parties; the better it is for "the scene" and it's outward appearance to the mainstream.

I know there are quite a few groups that promote with insomniac but i have never seen them associated with HARD or Nitrous. Bassrush is owned by Pascual or however you spell that guys name, i could be wrong but i know they go hand in hand. I just have never seen anything connecting the 2 groups what so ever, bassrush is the last LA company i would think was associated with HARD mainly because they don't ever have any drum & bass. I would love for HARD, Insomniac, Bassrush and Go Ventures to all come together for an event i just don't think that will ever happen.

You wouldn't see them "associated" on flyers etc. I personally know people that work heavily on the production side of things for both. I dont mean to say that they promotion companies are related in a business sense.

Hard Haunted 2009:
Boys Noize (maybe?)
Deadmau5
Crookers
Steve Aoki
Destructo

And you know Crystal Castles will be there. i think they'd explode if they ever had to do a solo gig again or missed a festival. Add a Justice DJ set. So basically it's Hard Haunted 2008 minus a few acts (Soulwax?) and plus a few new ones (Steve Aoki live set).

Because:
1) it's a festival
2) it's HARD
3) it's Crystal Castles

Okay, so instead of Justice, we get a webcast of Justice at Voodoo, an 99% of the crowd acts like it is the greatest performance from the greatest act to ever happen to music, except for the 1% that is from the Coachella board. They hate Justice and are watching something else.

Go HARD!

I love HARD events (and have been to every one but NYE) but Insomniac does A LOT better job at everything, especially lighting and sound. The lighting and effects are generally pretty bad at HARD so lets hope that changes. The biggest issue with Insomniac is that they have way too much trance and its mostly old man dj trance... EDC tho was a step in the right direction tho so we'll see

As for GoVentures and HARD. Reza is to GoV as Destructo is to HARD. They are both the owners of the company so they organize the events and then put themselves in the lineup so i dont really count either.

the guy that runs HARD is the co-manager of Crookers... that doesn't surprise me.

they do solo shows, they have a kick-ass one the day after HARD, it's gonna be the best show ever!! they're also doing an after-show in a club after Lolla the day before HARD... 4 shows in 48 hours, give em a break!!

HARD is slowly getting bigger and bigger as a promotion company but i doubt they will ever be as big as Insomniac, maybe Go Ventures but not Insomniac.

see, i think we're seeing a split in EDM. though i haven't been to a hard fest (feel free to correct me), it seems like it's taken the more "mainstream" route. i think hard is taking the more indie/rock crowd, and also the people who were really into raving back in the day, gave up on it, and now want to come back to a big, fun party. to each their own, but it's just not for me. i have no interest in the whole boys noize, deadalu5 or MSTRKRFT sound. and hard seems to put out a lot of that rock/edm nonsense.

while events like EDC & monster massive still pull out headliner idiots like PVD & felix da housecat, they also have stages with varying genres. i don't see much genre grouping on the hard flyers, how many stages are there generally? even then though, i will concede that a lot of the genre headliners are still pretty "mainstream" for EDM (how many times has andy c & mark farina been booked lately), but they aren't really "mainstream" soundwise like boys noize is.

perhaps i'm wrong (since i haven't been), but count me out of all hard events. while i'm sure there's a great party going on, it just seems like a company trying to mainstream the rave. give me the pure EDM djs & freaks at EDC any day of the week.

have fun and be safe at this everyone :)

I can at least tolerate the crowd at a Hard event to some degree it seems a lot more people are there for the music instead of just a place to get fucked up on drugs. I still remember going to Nocturnal and watching the Chemical Brothers blow me away with their live show. Seriously one of the best light shows outside of Daft Punk I've ever seen and people all around me are watching some dope twirl glow sticks in their face instead. Its like being surrounded by the walking dead.

Its like being surrounded by the walking dead.

that's a good point, a lot of the insomniac events have become mainstream in their own sense as a drug haven. but ya know, that's how it was when i started going so i guess i'm ok with it. i've probably looked like the walking dead myself, but i really was enjoying my experience. i never viewed a rave as some place i went to soley for the music. take EDC. i went this year for the venue and one dj. i paid all that money and flew out just for a VENUE and an atmosphere. you could have a blast at EDC without ever knowing who the djs were. to me, a rave is about that type of experience. if i want a concert, i'll pay money to sit in a chair and watch a concert. if i want an experience, i go to a rave.

that may sound horrible, but it's the truth. i have grown to love the music and now tend to choose events based on djs i like, but it didn't start out that way. i started attending raves just to party & have fun.

do you think that hard will ever be a drug haven like the other so cal parties? do you think it just hasn't "caught on" to that crowd yet?

07-07-2009, 09:55 AM
Ivy i completely agree on the diversity between the style of massives to HARD events but the last hard event i went to was hard 13 and it looked like the same people i see at massives. Hard is also starting to branch out to different genres as well from what i noticed, Hard summer has dubstep, electro, amanda blank is in her own at this event and Underworld is a complete curveball to what a hard event normally has in the line up. They are only 2 stage events now which is kind of wack, but the drug safe haven atmosphere is just as roaring at a hard event as it is at insomniac events. Just because you dress the person in hipster fashion and funny haircuts doesn't mean that when they drop E and wave light in their faces it's any different than the guy doing the same thing in front of PVD. I get what you are saying though that comparing the 2 is a little difficult under certain aspects of the party's, but I am seeing Hard line ups becoming more diverse in acts each event they throw.

that's a good point, a lot of the insomniac events have become mainstream in their own sense as a drug haven. but ya know, that's how it was when i started going so i guess i'm ok with it. i've probably looked like the walking dead myself, but i really was enjoying my experience. i never viewed a rave as some place i went to soley for the music. take EDC. i went this year for the venue and one dj. i paid all that money and flew out just for a VENUE and an atmosphere. you could have a blast at EDC without ever knowing who the djs were. to me, a rave is about that type of experience. if i want a concert, i'll pay money to sit in a chair and watch a concert. if i want an experience, i go to a rave.

that may sound horrible, but it's the truth. i have grown to love the music and now tend to choose events based on djs i like, but it didn't start out that way. i started attending raves just to party & have fun.

do you think that hard will ever be a drug haven like the other so cal parties? do you think it just hasn't "caught on" to that crowd yet?


I never went through the "just going to party" phase of my raving because i got into the music before i ever went to a rave. I got my first drum n bass cd in 7th grade, Grooverider & MC Skibadee from back in like '99, and just started going to raves a couple years ago. My first rave ever was nocturnal 05 or 06 and i went sober the entire time riding the high of the heavy basslines being dropped in the jungle room. Insomniac does have WAY WAY WAY better production, decorations, entertainment and atmosphere but for me it's never worth the $ without a good line up with it. That's just me i know like 80% of the crowd maybe even 90% is there for the experience but i personally only go to an event if there are enough dj's or acts i want to see on the bill. I am not saying people shouldn't go to just party and not care about the music, because if no one did that raves would fizzle out and be done but i am just saying that i wish more people had a deeper respect for the music.

when you are looking at a crowd of 15,000 people compared to a crowd of 45,000-100,000 people, so to me it just seems that way but it really is just as bad.

Yeah that would be pretty sick to have in the states, but i think the closest you will get to a line up like that is Ultra Music Festival. I would kill for someone to throw an insane line up like that in so cal, the only people i see having the capabilitys of throwing a party like that in the LA rave scene are insomniac.

See i think Ultra>EDC, sure you don't get as long of sets but you get a better line up, older crowd, smoother entrance, i like the atmosphere better. The only thing EDC has that is better is the production, decorations and art in my opinion. I like the venue better for ultra more spread out and open like coachella.

perhaps i'm thinking of the "after hours" stuff, but i've always heard that drinks cost you a grip of money at ultra. but again, that might be all the after hours club stuff and not the festival itself. i tend to only hear about the after hours stuff, because generally the arizona people that go out to ultra are booked at the after hours type events and not the actual festival itself.

Ha Creamfields is the #1 EDM Festival on the planet. Think of Coachella but in buttfuck England and instead of Paul McCartney you have Tiesto. Its pretty much the combination of Insomniac, GoVentures and HARD's yearly lineups, over two days.... The reason Europe runs EDM is bc its local, so its cheaper, and because the artists love and are honored to be playing at the famous festivals. Trying finding a promoter to pay half of those guys to fly 10 hours to Los Angeles while still paying the a fourth tier performer like Boys Noize $30k (?)

Our best bet would be if Insomniac trashed its March event HowSweet and replaced it with another event in the Colliseum right after WMC...

Having been to the last two Ultras and EDC's I gotta say that EDC wins by a mile. Miami during March is awful, the people there are terrible and mostly Guidos, and the production severely lacks behind that of EDC. Yea, the artists are a lot better but its hard to enjoy the music when the environment around you is miserable

word! i think the reason i even come to these boards is to hear out and speak with people who have a profound understanding/appreciation for music and all the fantastic things it does in our lives. i think the summed wealth of knowledge that you guys bring in to our lil internet roundtable is pretty impressive.

Great video, but unfortunately way off. I found a lot of "cool" people when I was at UMF. Miami was amazing when I went this past year. The only time the weather started getting bad was when we left miami. I didn't go to edc this year. But from what I remember last year, I waited 3hrs to get in, then went on to find out that Boys Noize had cancelled on me last minute. I was completely devastated. Since Boys Noize was the MAIN reason I went last year. The environment around me at UMF was awesome, but you are some what right about the "guidos". I think every festival has it's pros/cons and trade off's. It's either guidos or kids sitting down in huge circles 20 feet from the dj's, pick your poison. Cause I didn't see ANY of such groups when I was at UMF. The only people remotely close to the "EDC kids" were the ones resting their legs from dancing, sitting down on the grass. The whole guido thing has a lot to do with almost everyone with money flocking down to Miami from the north east side. I thought the environment at Miami was amazing, you're right by the ocean with 70,000+ people cheering on the likes of David Guetta. As for the "atmosphere", I could gauge that well, considering I was at one stage on saturday when I was at UMF. There are a lot less people at UMF than at EDC, or maybe it just seemed that way, since UMF had their shit together. How was the wait to get into EDC this year? I think if I were to ever go back to EDC, I would have to get VIP so I wouldn't have to wait 3-4hrs to get into the venue.

Yeah i enhance my experience a lot of the time now, still do a sober party mixed in every couple events, but i still do enhance the experience on plenty occasions. I am on here a lot since i found it for the same reasons as well, everyone on here seems to have a decent amount of knowledge about what they are talking about and are able to have solid debates and conversations about quality music which you don't find too often. All said and done you will always have to deal with some guys head to toe in beads and stupid glasses laying on the dancefloor with micky mouse gloves on and lights, but hey without them there would be no EDC.

Yeah, tell me about it... Especially when I was in charge or organizing the group of people together for their first rave... It's safe to say that none of them want to go anywhere NEAR a rave anytime in the near future. It sucks, because I know that these festival things can be amazing, it just sucked that they had to be a part of that one. And sadly, most people aren't willing to give "things like this" a second chance. And, to be honest, I don't really blame them. If I was giving something a chance, and was just shot in the foot with the whole experience, I doubt I would give it another try. I honestly think, that the producers of EDC truely had to go above and beyond this time around. Since last years event left such a terrible taste in many peoples mouths. I think that is one of the main factors why they made this years lineup great, let alone, a 2 day event. I honestly can't see myself going to another EDC. Whereas HHM or any Hard event for that matter has always been great. Sure, their first event back when they had justice in downtown with peaches wasn't the most organized, but at least people weren't waiting outside for 4hrs to get in. That in itself is just fucking pathetic. There's no way someone could possibly defend what went down at EDC last year. The thought of it alone, infuriates me. I must talk about something else, how about them dodgers! lol

This year Insomniac opened up another entrance so we actually walked in without waiting both nights around 6pm. I know some people had to wait on Saturday cuz our friends went to willcall, got their tickets, saw the line and walked all the way back to the North entrance to came in with us. I also had some friends that went VIP this year and although they said it was fun, it wasn't worth the price of $200.

I agree that Miami is an amazing city, I just prefer to go to an event from in LA from 2pm - 4am in June than in Miami from 12pm - 12am in March. I think one of the best things about EDC is the fact that its the perfect temperature to cool down while walking between stages or just sitting in the stands, whereas at UMF its always hot until the last two hours. Anyway, i guess we can respectively agree to dissagree..

I totally agree man. This is one of the main reasons why I live in SOCAL. If anything bothered me about UMF, it was what you just mentioned. I didn't like the whole, ending at midnight deal. I am more of a night owl. The thing is, that I tend not to pace myself when at events like this. So more often than not, festivals ending at midnight turn out to work best for me. If I do push it past my limits, like I did at bonnaroo, I tend to get sick when I get back from my trip. Which always sucks cause then you end up using sick time after your vacation time. NOT COOL. You're right about the whole sitting in the stands deal. I thought that was one of the coolest things that set the massives in socal apart from the rest, especially the PERFECT weather that EDC always finds itself in.

see i can dig what you guys are saying, UMF ending at 12:00 does suck major balls, but you especially being a night owl should know that in miami that weekend shit doesnt really ever end. You can go out till 10:00 AM and go back to Ultra 2 hours later and just party all weekend. I know that's not what i do because i enjoy some sleep but i know it can be done, atleast one night of the 2 you can find a SICK after party to go to and see some even more amazing Djs that for some reason didn't make the ultra line up. Either way i love both places each for their very own reason, i do think LA takes it on vibe, weather and atmosphere but UMF takes it out on line up but i have a feeling EDC will just get better and better every year and soon be equally as good of a line up.

Edit: and i know they are all guedos and stuff in miami but in all honesty i feel they have a deeper respect for the music, or at least house music maybe not jungle and trance but the entire city of Miami loves house music with a passion.

2 fewer stages resulting in less acts, les acts reulting in higher ticket price? hmmm interesting. I honestly think them and Monster Massive throwing events on the same day is gonna be bad business for both companys. It all depends on line ups though, so far both line ups are looking weak but HARD only has 2 actual acts confirmed so there is much more to come.

monster massive has the same shitty line up every year, I guess hard is starting to do the same thing though. You think with all the talent out there LA would mix it up a bit more. I guess most ravers in socal dont care about the line up much as long as the lights are pretty and its huge. I wish this hard would be kept where it was last year, perfect size for a crowd.

the shrine?!
you smokin rocks boy?!

with the amount of people that are going to come, i think they shouldnt use EITHER venue (shrine or forum), they should do it outdoors or find just a better venue in general.

both suck for the crowds and stages.
if it were a smaller crowd id agree that the shrine would be fine, but its not for the crowds that now go to HARD.

The shrine was a great venue for HARD 13and Haunted Mansion in my opinion. if it's too crowded that means the promotion company didn't do their job ofetting an appropriate capacity and sticking to it. Most promotion company over sell every event they throw if they can and thus creating a jam packed festival, so i suggest the shrine.

that would be the point of keeping it at the shrine, to keep the crowd smaller. Its not for the crowd that goes to hard? were you at the last hard? 4k or less....... They should keep it there and only let in 10-15k like last year. Last year the lines were good, the outdoor stages where great and I only had to deal with 10-15k douchbags that had no clue who they were listening to instead of 80k like the other party.

07-15-2009, 04:26 PM
ehhh i think they should just find a better venue. Who cares about crowd sizes? Did i got to HARD 13? Nope, i did not. HARD Haunted last year was great but you need to know that the crowd is going to be getting bigger. Just gotta deal with it. As for lines thats just a matter of the venue and how many entrances there are. Both can be solved by putting the event a better location (not the shrine or forum IMO)

even if the bottom 5 only play the vip room, that still makes an average of 1 hour for the remaining 16 acts on two stages in 8 hours...

it's not quantum physics.. 16 dj's, 2 stages, 8 hours = average of 1 hour sets..

i'm assuming Underworld (& maybe Crookers - who're closing) will play longer, which means the smaller earlier acts will prob get 45min...

i expect the 5 smallest names (who're really just resident dj's anyway) will play the vip room, with probably destructo pulling double duty..

^ seconded. Basement Jaxx is a total win

This event is going to be epic, i can already tell.
Now if we could only get a better venue...=/

they are looking into other venues... like the Home Depot Center (but its all contingent on how well the events at the Forum are)

Also... DISCOTHEQUE was fucking incredible. The venue is kinda a dump but the sound system was top notch, the place is huge so u can walk around or sit in the booths on the balcony, the two stages allowed for a great blend sounds, and drinks were strong. Win

yeah, if KROQ fests & Warped Tour can be held at Home Depot, then a HARD event there could easily be the 2nd best EDM massive around

Someone posted some French music website that had them @ Voodoo the 30th and HARD the 31st. However reliable that is.

And booo I'm skipping this for Voodoo. I want to see Basement Jaxx :(

go to Hard Summer and that might take care of the urge.. half the Mansion lineup will be in the Sahara again anyway. (not that that's a bad thing)

Coming home from the rave at 4am this morning, and getting TWO texts that the Jaxx were going to be at HHM...MADE MY LIFE!

Once I see them on the lineup, tickets are bought. You guys have no idea how ready I am to see the Jaxx again, and hear Rendez-vu live. (Hopefully)

THIS IS A DREAM!!!!

oh and since b.j. is on the mind...

Basement Jaxx have announced detail of their forthcoming fifth full-length album, due for October release on XL Recordings.

The record is entitled Scars and the collab-happy duo will feature Amp Fiddler, Yoko Ono, Santigold, Sam Sparro and more along the way. Typically, it's a varied affair, with Billboard mentioning electro, rap, funk, ska and house in their exclusive preview of the record.

In other Jaxx news, the group apparently also have a second record in the can as well. This one, though, is an untitled work that is heavy on "Pink Floyd-y, more ambient-y stuff....more for bath-time music." There are currently tentative plans to release the tunes as a mini-LP later on in the year or in early 2010.

XL will release Basement Jaxx's Scars in October 2009.

Research:

"Rick Rubin subsequently handpicked Gary for A&R in electronic music at Def American Recordings, launching a noteworthy career with such acts as Lords of Acid, Messiah, David Holmes, Basement Jaxx, Dub Pistols, God Lives Underwater and founding 1500 Records and Nitrus Records."

there's lots of acts that makes sense, I'm not saying it doesn't make sense. just that someone posting "confirmed" on this message board, 99% of the time, is just stirring up shit.

sorry for my pessimism, I would love it if basement jaxx were there, but there's not much to go on here. the basement jaxx thread has quotes from the band saying they probably won't make it to the US this year. if you're right, then fantastic, we all win. just don't be surprised if people doubt your confirmation.

Yeah, the moment Basement Jaxx get officially confirmed is the moment I make plans to attend this thing. Definitely one of those bands that I'll travel to anywhere on the west coast. But if they're playing LA, wouldn't it make sense that they're going to have a few other US dates as well?
