Breaking News: Ticketmaster Lists Dates And New Venue For HARD Summer 1 Day Before Announcement
It looks like the information for HARD Summer might have been prematurely added to Ticketmaster. As of this writing, it is 10pm PST on Monday, and HARD Summer was set to announce a new venue as well as the date of the festival on Tuesday at 10am PST. However, Ticketmaster has already posted the information on the ticket page for the event. The listed venue is Whittier Narrows Recreation Area in South El Monte, CA, and it will take place on August 2 and August 3. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on February 28 at 10am PST. After fees, a general admission two-day ticket will cost $141.20. To take a look at the Ticketmaster page, click here.
HARD Summer has been forced to switch venues due to a huge renovation of LA Historic Park. I have never been to Whittier Narrows, but a few people just told me that the park is nice and grassy. This is great for the people who hated getting dirt kicked up into their eyes and nose at LA Historic Park.
Keep in mind that this information is not confirmed. I advise you to wait until 10am PST for the official announcement from Gary Richards and HARD.
