HARD’s first summer show at the Los Angeles Stage Historic Park (which was to feature M.I.A., N.E.R.D., and food trucks) was canceled. The second one, HARD Summer, will be going down from noon to midnight at the same Chinatown-adjacent park this Saturday, August 7.

“It’s definitely, in my opinion, the best place in Downtown to do an event like this,” event organizer Gary Richards told LAist in an interview last month of the Metro-friendly location.

While the last almost-show was to feature more mainstream acts, HARD Summer gets back to the brand’s roots with electro-leaning dance acts who known how to make rock kids dance.
