Hard Summer has a new location this year. Back in February, LA’s largest electronic dance music festival announced that it’s usual home, The Los Angeles State Historic Park, was being closed due to renovations. The new location for this year can be found 13 miles east of the original area at Whittier Narrows Recreation Area in South El Monte. The park has several lakes, wildlife, and trees just like the San Manuel Amphitheater where the Wonderland festival was hosted in 2013.
Raves have gotten bad reps from the media due to incidents of drug overdoses. Hardfest was partially bought in 2012 by the nation’s largest concert event promoter, Live Nation, giving off the notion that it had become highly popular and also a major money-making event. Even though they’re becoming increasingly popular, it’s been difficult for electronic dance music festivals to find homes for their growing audiences. The L.A. born Electric Daisy Carnival moved to Las Vegas in 2011 and now sells more than 100,000 tickets every year for its three-day party there.
The CEO of Insomniac, Pasquale Rotella posted to his Facebook page that San Manuel though “it’s a beautiful location, it’s clear that it can not handle our larger Insomniac festivals right now.” He announced they will be having smaller all-camp out events specifically geared for San Manuel, which will help ease traffic and other problems. As of right now though, Beyond, Nocturnal, and Escape from Wonderland are looking for new homes in Southern California. Rotella did announce that Insomniac will be launching a Beyond and Nocturnal Wonderland in Las Vegas at a different location from EDC’s Las Vegas area. In the mean time, catch Hard Summer August 2nd and 3rd this year to see great perfomances by A$AP Mob, Jack U, Neo and many more.
