In keeping with the seasons, the Nitrus crew is torching up a dope evening of slammin’, cutting edge electronic music under their Hard Summer banner, and anyone with an interest in raw, unmediated fun should hop on board STAT. The date to highlight is Saturday, August 8th, and the venue in question is The Forum in Inglewood, California. VIP options are available for the high-rollers, and the line-up is like a summer dream (Underworld, Chromeo, etc). Don’t let your summer be a bummer.
Within the realm of all-ages, mercifully-priced, fifteen-thousand capacity dance-stravaganzas, Hard Summer is king of the hill. They’ve been around long enough to know the ups and downs and pitfalls and trapdoors (thus they know how to make a party rule and not get shut down and have the sound be sick, etc), but they’re also still young and fresh enough to be clued in to the raddest new music flowing forth from the global iPod in the sky (aka, they’re not out of touch with what’s cool). It’s a best of both worlds situation. Lucky you.
Check the line-up for proof of the Hard Summer magic: Underworld, Chromeo, Crookers, Crystal Castles, A-Trak, Tiga, The Bloody Beetroots, Sebastian, Busy P, Amanda Blank, Steve Aoki, Sinden, Jack Beats, Rye Rye, Destructo, Skeet Skeet, Dan Oh, 12th Planet, etc. More acts may get announced, but more tickets won’t be printed when these sell out. So you roll the dice and make the call.
