LOS ANGELES, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --This past Saturday, November 3, HARD
Events celebrated the traditional Day of the Dead holiday with HARD HAUNTED
MANSION PRESENTS: DAY OF THE DEAD, a blowout extravaganza of high-profile
performances and state-of-the-art staging with a sold-out crowd of 35,000 fans
at Los Angeles State Historic Park downtown.

Boasting enhanced production like no other HARD event, the festival featured
over 30 acts across four specially-themed music areas: the HARD Stage, Knife
Party presents EARSTORM Stage, Moombahton Massive Stage and Red Bull Music
Academy Discotheque, as well as carnival-sized amusement rides and premier
food trucks.

The soundtrack for the night was provided by an exciting lineup of the hottest
names in electro, techno, moombahton and other EDM genres:

JUSTICE (LIVE) / KNIFE PARTY / MAJOR LAZER
ZEDS DEAD / DIPLO / TOMMY TRASH / JACK BEATS
KILL THE NOISE / DILLON FRANCIS / CROOKERS
MAYA JANE COLES / GESAFFELSTEIN
ARAABMUZIK / ZANE LOWE / SOUL CLAP / DESTRUCTO
NADASTROM / PARA ONE / FOREIGN BEGGARS / BRO SAFARI
CLOCKWORK / BAAUER / UZ / HEIDI / TITTSWORTH
JWLS / J. PHLIP / SABO

The event garnered great reviews in the press:

"The success of the HARD franchise suggests the fests are must-see events in
themselves, beyond any particular lineup that's playing. This year's Day of
the Dead, an update of the popular HARD Haunted Mansion series, sold out to
the tune of 35,000 tickets."
—August Brown, Los Angeles Times (11/5/12)

"I run like a maniac from stage to stage, greedily wanting to see bits of
every act to follow. I give Major Lazer one song before popping over to the
Earstorm stage for a good half hour of Kill The Noise, who goes through the
tracks off his new EP that drops on OWSLA (Skrillex's label) on Tuesday.
Sonny himself is spotted side stage, cheering him along. I miss Nadastrom
(couldn't do it all!) but manage to see Maya Jane Coles for a mere three
minutes. Knife Party sucked me in for almost their entire set; I find myself
in a dubstep mood and it's too good to walk away. Then I'm off to Dillon
Francis, who was the favorite at HardSummer. I don't recognize his new
platinum blonde "do" but am grateful that I made the connection because he
drops some ridiculous beats and I work off my sweet potato fries in his
audience."
– Nicole Pajer, LA WEEKLY (11/5/12)

"With views overlooking the Los Angeles skyline and convenient public
transportation, the Los Angeles Historic Park could be in the running for the
best venue in the Los Angeles area to host a music festival. Combine the
location with amazing music spanning multiple genres from American dubstep to
modern day electro; let's just say the festival went off with a bang."
–Kevin Camps, deathandtaxes (11/5/12)
