HARD’s annual Los Angeles Halloween celebration, Day of the Dead, is fast approaching and attendees are buzzing with excitement. From an astoundingly packed lineup consisting of fittingly hard hitting acts like Loudpvck, Valentino Khan, Big Gigantic, RL Grime, Seven Lions, Zeds Dead, Cashmere Cat, GTA and Moody Good to electronic heavyweights Pretty Lights, Zedd, Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, Diplo, Knife Party, and Deadmau5 performing side by side with Eric Prydz all packed into two days, this year’s DOTD is bound to be one for the record books.
Anticipation has escalated substantially now that daily set times have been unveiled. Despite the lineups being jam packed with talent, HARD did their best to reduce scheduling conflicts. Those attending Saturday’s festivities will be pleased to arrive early to catch Sweater Beats at 2:05 or Loudpvck at 2:30. The day piles on acts then on after, from Yogi and Salva dominating the 3:00 spot and Giraffage, Seven Lions and Luminox all taking up real estate at 4:00. Fill your 5:00 hour with acts like Snails and GTA and spend sunset with Moody Good and Pretty Lights. Once festival goers have gotten their daily dose of funk, they can check out Gesaffelstein or Diplo, both playing at 8:15. The cherry on top of Saturday night’s festivities has to be the highly anticipated 90 minute back-to-back set between Deadmau5 and Eric Prydz. But if that’s not your thing, attendees can check out Knife Party, Odesza, Jamie Jones or Araabmuzik.
For those fortunate enough to attend Sunday’s party, be sure to fill your 2:00 with either Congrorock or Valentino Khan, followed by Djemba Djemba at 3:35 and Big Gigantic at 5:00. The sunset spot is overflowing with talent, from HARD’s creator, Destructo at 6:15, to TJR, Cajmere, Rustie and Thomas Jack. After the sun sets, the bass freaks will come out to play for RL Grime’s 7:20 set followed by Zeds Dead and Bassnectar. If bass isn’t really your thing, Zedd, Cashmere Cat, Calvin Harris and Claude Von Stroke are equally viable options. Get a full run down of Saturday’s and Sunday’s set times here!
