HARD, the dance party impresarios who’ve brought you HARD New Year’s Eve and HARD Summer Fest have heard the fans requests and announced their line-up for this year’s HARD Haunted Mansion, a massive dance party taking place this Halloween at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Recognizing that one day just wasn’t enough for a lineup this good, HARD Haunted Mansion has been extended into two days of the world’s most premier DJs and electronic dance artists.

The lineup for this year’s HARD Haunted Mansion is a veritable who’s who of contemporary DJs known for consistently pushing the boundaries of dance music forward. Headlining act Justice, a duo that needs no introduction, have become synonymous with a movement in maximal electronic music that defines the current era. UK-based veterans Basement Jaxx are paying a rare US-visit to drop their brand of classic-yet-innovative house music in anticipation of their fifth studio album, Scars. Joining them are heavyweights such as Deadmau5, 2ManyDJs, Crookers, A-Trak, The Bloody Beetroots, Modeselektor, Major Lazer, Buraka Som Sistema, Zombie Nation, Steve Aoki, Destructo, Don Rimini, Shinichi Osawa and more. Anyone who appreciates a phenomenal dance party will not want to miss the most electric event in the country this Halloween weekend.

HARD ANNOUNCES LINEUP FOR SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL AT THE FORUM IN LOS ANGELES

HARD ANNOUNCES LINEUP FOR SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL AT THE FORUM IN LOS ANGELES

August 8th, 2009 HARD SUMMER TO INCLUDE UNDERWORLD, CHROMEO, CROOKERS, CRYSTAL CASTLES, A-TRAK, TIGA, THE BLOODY BEETROOTS, SEBASTIAN, BUSY P, AMANDA BLANK, AND MORE

Good news for California’s work-weary and party-deprived: the dance music masterminds behind HARD New Year’s Eve and the sold out HARD Haunted Mansion will return to Los Angeles with their signature mega-party this summer.

British music stalwarts Underworld will transform the 15,000-capacity LA Forum into the world’s largest dance club. Enlisted to aid HARD’s party-starting cause: Canadian electro-funk duo and talk-box enthusiasts Chromeo, preeminent Italian superstars Crookers, lo-fi mutineers Crystal Castles, and electro-hop wunderkind A-trak. Currently slated to join them are the likes of Tiga, The Bloody Beetroots, Sebastian, Busy P, Amanda Blank, Steve Aoki, Rye Rye, Skeet Skeet, Sinden, Jack Beats, Destructo, Dan Oh and 12th Planet.

2009’s HARD Summer lineup speaks to the broad, multi-faceted appeal that has made HARD’s events so successful. Veterans Underworld opened electronic music’s floodgates with their daring mega-hit “Born Slippy .NUXX” (UK #2) and its pivotal role in the film Trainspotting. The duo earned the respect of critics and fans with their unforgettable, accomplished performances and ever-evolving style. The slick synth-pop of Chromeo jostles up against the arty bit-crushed productions of Crystal Castles and the high-tech eclecticism of Tiga. Fans will revel at the multi-media electro-punk of HARD all-stars Crookers and The Bloody Beetroots.

This year the HARD creative team builds on the immense success of last year’s HARD Summer Music Festival which attracted over 7,000 revelers to party with N*E*R*D and MSTRKRFT, and was hailed as “the party of the year” by URB.com. With every event they put on, HARD enhances its reputation as a powerhouse, and this summer’s party is sure to raise the bar again. Pre-sale tickets can be purchased at Groovetickets and Ticketmaster.

The creative team behind the HARD Summer Music Festival and HARD New Year’s Eve have again upped the ante with the year’s most-talked-about festival roster, HARD Haunted Mansion. Guaranteed to be the premiere 2008 Halloween event in LA with headliners Justice (France) and Soulwax(Belgium), the grounds of the Shrine Expo Hall in downtown LA will be transformed into a Halloween-costumed mega-party with international all-stars Boys Noize (Germany), Crystal Castles (Canada), Simian Mobile Disco (UK), Deadmau5 (Canada), and Crookers (Italy). Los Angeles’ cream of the crop DJ AM, Jason Bentley, and Destructo round out the non-stop indoor/outdoor event on Friday, October 31st.

French duo Justice have quickly become a household name with their best-selling album “Ý”, outrageous videos, electrifying performances, and their monster hits “D.A.N.C.E.” and “We Are Your Friends”. Soulwax have proven themselves worldwide as innovative rockers, mash-up DJs and remixers extraordinaire, all documented on their upcoming DVD release. Soulwax have finally found the perfect home for their stadium-sized show with LA’s boundary-pushing HARD Festival and its top-notch audio-visual production.

HARD Haunted Mansion expands on the success of the HARD Summer Music Festival which attracted over 7,000 revelers on July 19th to party with N*E*R*D, MSTRKRFT, and rising stars The Bloody Beetroots. HARD Haunted Mansion is open to all ages while the music-loving 21+ set will be treated to multiple bars and upgraded open-bar VIP sections at both the indoor and outdoor stages. VIP tickets and General Admission tickets are on sale now through Groovetickets.com, Ticketmaster and select lifestyle stores.

Hailed as “the party of the year” by URB.com, HARD proved it was a powerhouse with their New Year’s and Summer celebrations. “The eclectic lineup reflects the mashed-up party techno that has attracted so many rock fans,” exclaimed the Los Angeles Times. Still a few questions remain for HARD Haunted Mansion; will Simian Mobile Disco join Justice on stage for “We Are Your Friends”? Will Alice Glass and Crystal Castles incite a riot? Who are the surprise guest artists? And most importantly… what costume are you wearing to the HARD Haunted Mansion?

HARD Haunted Mansion opens its doors early at 8 PM to ensure fast entrance; music continues until 4 AM.
