Tis’ the season for big musical festivals! This morning, the lineup for HARD Summer 2011 was announced, with enough electro/house/disco acts on it to fill an 8-hour time span. Taking place in downtown Los Angeles on August 6th, it features acts such as duo Duck Sauce (even Danny DeVito gets down to them), to bass-heavy acts like Skrillex, Boys Noize, and Nadastrom. If you’re currently weeping softly to every LCD Soundsystem CD you own, fear not, for James Murphy and Pat Mahoney will be in the DFA tent, along with Jack Beats, Carte Blanche, and much more.
