Digitalism and Caspa headline a summer trek across North America.
Hard might be most well-known for their bass-heavy parties in California, including the Hard Summer Music Festival in LA, but the party has stretched out to include events around the country. In its second year, the summer tour includes stops at 14 cities across North America. The nightly lineup will center around German techno duo Digitalism (playing live with a drummer) and UK dubstep icon Caspa along with Hard regular Destructo. Jack Beats (whose recent release includes a remix from this week's RA podcast selector, Skream) and French electro artist Gesaffelstein will each make a few appearances along the way.
The tour begins with a set of West Coast shows leading the way to August 6th's Hard Festival in LA. From there, it heads to Texas for two shows followed by a night in Chicago, before appearances up north in Toronto and Montreal. It all wraps up with five nights on the East Coast, beginning in Boston and ending in New York.
