    $119 blew out right away. I picked one up at the $129 level. Looks like that is sold out now and now at $139.

    Keep Soulwax away from HARD. They need to a proper headlining show in LA. None of this festival bullshit

    Soulwax cancelled their live dates a couple summers ago to work on their new album and have been performing as 2manydjs since. Haven't heard anything about that album though since. I dont think there is good odds for any Soulwax dates in the near future .

    I would much rather see them on a proper tour. Especially since I'm in NorCal. I'm not a HARD guy -- but I believe the last time Soulwax rolled through they did play there, SF, and NY. I also don't think the HARD crowd is really right for them.

    And yeah, I know it's "only" 2manydjs these days. I'd gladly take an Under The Covers show though.

    Up to $149 now. Really hoping for a decent lineup. Stagewise actually works out better than Coachella because all of the good music is usually one small (empty) stage and all the trendy brosafari/skrillex-ish edm is on the main stage so easy to avoid the terribles.

    Being able to walk up to the rail 5 minutes before Booka Shade started at Day of the Dead was great. They played to a crowd of around 100 and killed it. As soon as the set ended pretty much that entire crowd migrated over to a fairly empty Claude Von Stroke set. Love how hard always seems to get a decent house lineup even though the sets never really get packed

    Not only did they debut Zhu they also had that special Mau5 b2b Prydz set for the first time at a festival on the same day which was groundbreaking. Insomniac must step their game up because Hard seems to be having the more creative lineups nowadays. Btw I was there and that Zhu set was thumping like no other set I have seen before and also the visuals were fucking crazy kinda like FlyLo's new setup.

    Yeah, I liked it too. Especially considering it was apparently a 7 month preview before his next set. Oh, and Mau5Prydz didn't suck either.

    I did the EXACT same thing. Although the sound on Claude's stage was a little wack.

    I'll probably do the layaway when I get paid. If I don't like the line-up, I'll just sell my ticket. Boy do I miss the early days of HARD...

    2007-2012 were the glory years. 2013 was when they really jumped the gun.

    Sometimes I wished I had gone to Hard NYE 2007 but I ended up going to Giant Maximus instead.

    That's a wide gap to me. IMO once they left the Shrine they changed and 2012 they jumped the gun. I still have fun but the energy and atmosphere is way different.

    HARD Summer 08-> Hard Halloween 08--> Hard 13 --> [The event for which we will not name] --> HARD Halloween 09 was an incredible run. I'm sad I missed HARD Halloween 10 tho :-(

    Its Cajmeres fault! He blew out one of the subs and the rest of the sets had distorted bass

    I attended Hard Haunted Mansion in 2009 and 2011. While Soulwax and 2manydjs stole the show at both fests, I was underwhelmed by a lot of the other acts. It'd have to be a crazy lineup to get me to go without them making an appearance.

    I just remember being in the VIP outside the Shrine triple-fisting Grey Goose and whatever (because it was an open Goose bar that year). I liked those old HHM parties. Yeah, they were pretty ravetastic. But Soulwax was awesome.

    The first HHM that went until 4 am was awesome. Never missed one at the shrine and definitely saw some great sets there from Soulwax (twice) and 2manydj's.

    2008 was incredible. When VIP was worth something and wasnt as crazy as it is now. Soo many good artists that year.
