Gary Richards, otherwise known as techno technician Destructo, is gearing up to do something great. Gary Richards is the mastermind behind the hugely successful HARD festival circuit and he is gearing up to throw the biggest party going on in America next weekend. Earlier this year, HARD dropped one of the most eclectic lineups of the summer, and now as the festival approaches, set times being revealed yesterday builds the anticipation even further. As with all major festivals around the country, the conundrums begin to arise, and decisions must be made. HARD offers four stages, the Hard and Harder Stages, the Underground Stage, and the Summer Stage; each stage delivering a distinct sound for fans of similar artists to flock to. However, Richard’s team has carefully structured the schedule of the upcoming weekend to be effective and manageable for fans who might be bouncing from stage to stage. Set times dropped this weekend and I know I have already made my tentative schedule, comprised of the likes of some of the biggest trap names around right now including Flosstradamus, gLAdiator, Baauer, and RL Grime. Check out the schedule below and start making those tough decisions, because HARD is right around the corner, its sure to have downtown Los Angeles rattling, and you’ll want to make sure you didn’t miss a second of the fun. Peep the set times below folks, and hope to see you there.
Saturday August 3rd
