For those of you that didnt go to HARD last night you might not know but about two hours in to the fest the Inglewood police shut the shit down. The following message was posted on HARD’s official website.

We were required to shut down Hard Summer at The Forum last night by the Los Angeles County Fire Department. They declared the event a “hazard” after seeing concertgoers jumping from the balcony to the floor, along with numerous other potentially dangerous activities. The Inglewood Police Department backed the decision of the Fire Department and assisted in the clearance of the venue.

While we, the promoters, worked with the authorities to consider other options to continue the concert, ultimately they made the decision based on the safety of the concertgoers. We are happy to report that there were no major injuries.

We are offering refunds to all concertgoers.

Beginning Monday, August 10th at 10 am, if you purchased your tickets through ticketmaster.com or a Ticketmaster phone center, the credit card you used to purchase the tickets will automatically be credited.

” I am so sorry for what happened last night at HARD in L.A
Don’t really know what went wrong, but all i know is that the
amazing crowd was ready to party, so do i.
I feel lucky to have been the only DJ to perform that night, i ended up my set
with Beastie Boys “Fight for Your Right (To Party!)” just before Crystal Castles short live show,
what a weird sign!
The rest of the line up was insane, Tiga, A-Trak, Chromeo, Crookes… were all ready to rumble too.
Let’s hope L.A will get another massive event like this soon.”
