Featuring a wide array of artists, you'll be able to sink your teeth into everything from Moombahton to unky Electro. The Day of the Dead is about to invade the area and haunt your ears with electrifying bass! Here at EDM Lounge we are just shivering with anticipation to join the dance with the devil this November 3rd. Get ready to be a victim and surrender your soul to the sinister sounds of this year's HARD lineup.

Araabmusik (The HARD Stage, 7:00 - 8:00 PM)

MPC master, this Rhode Island native has made a name for himself in Hip-Hop. Drumming on the MPC pad almost as if he was playing the drums, this impressive music producer has even inspired the likes of Kanye West to try out his live composition. After touring the country with the renowned Pretty Lights, you can be sure that his performance will be anything but tame.

Jack Beats (The HARD Stage, 8:00 - 9:00 PM)

British House & Bass duo Jack Beats are definitely a different brand of "HARD". After just releasing their Evolution mixtape featuring original tracks that will be released this December 9th, they are ready to make some nasty beats on the HARD stage. With an energetic stage presence, you can be sure that Jack Beats will surprise you in a good way.

Zeds Dead  (The HARD Stage, 9:00 - 10:00 PM)

Zed's Dead, baby! This Dubstep duo comprised of DC and Hooks are massive not just the EDM world, but now the video game world as well. After having a track being featured in the new Forza Horizon trailer, you can bet that you will not want to miss this display of hard drops and pounding bass adrenaline!

Major Lazer (The HARD Stage, 10:10 - 11:40 PM)

After parting ways with DJ/producer Switch, producer Diplo has a lot on his plate, not to mention the release of Major Lazer's new album, Free the Universe. This hybrid of reggae, hip-hop, Electro House and Moombahton is a culmination of all the great "hard" music out there. Major Lazer has been known for being a bit bizarre and weird, so if you like funky sounds and dirty dancing, you have come to the right place!

Kill the Noise (Earstorm Stage, 10:15 - 11:15 PM)

Hailing from the bustling city of New York, Jake Stanczak is an incredible House and Dubstep producer. With a new EP called Black Magic in the works, Kill the Noise is making big waves in all that is hard and grimey. Collaborating with big names like Datsik, Skrillex and Evol Intent, Kill the Noise is definitely a must-see on our list of hauntings this Saturday!

Crookers (Moombahton Massive Stage, 10:50 - 11:50 PM)

The Italian producer Crookers, is now just a one man show - but don't let that deter you. Crookers is still a uniquely different take on dance music. Redefining the word "Banger", it would make sense as to why the Moombahton Massive stage is his home. From collaborating with pop sensations or underground sensations, you can be sure his performance will be refreshingly different.

Knife Party (Earstorm Stage, 11:15 PM - 12:45 AM)

It really does not get any HARDer than this! Former Pendulum producers Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen have really broken boundaries in EDM with their massive musical project Knife Party. Experimental producer Rob Swire has toyed with everything from Drum & Bass, Reggae and Dubstep in his tracks. Expect nothing less than ridiculously hard drops and a crowd that goes even harder on the dance floor.

Gesaffelstein (Discothque, 11:20 PM - 12:20 AM)

Even though Brodinski won't be joining the French producer Gesaffelstein, you will still want to check him out. Incorporating many different styles of House, Tech House, and Deep Electro. If you're tired of repetitive vocal progressive house rhythms and beats, look no further- this is your antidote. Always mixing it up, this European sensation will be sure to throw in quite a few curveballs.



Justice (The HARD Stage, 12:20 - 1:50 AM)

Funky fresh, this French electronic duo have a massively incredible live performance. Incorporating rock and Indie-pop into their music, this duo has performed in front of giant crowds at festivals from Ultra to Coachella. These French House genies certainly know what they are doing and will be sure to let loose and D.A.N.C.E!

 

Tommy Trash (Earstorm Stage, 12:45 - 1:50 AM)

Australian Electro House producer Tommy Trash is an incredible DJ to watch live. After being teased by his sick 15 minute performance before Saturday of EDC 2012 was shut down, I have been left craving some more "Trash". The Dirty Electro House master knows how to take a nasty and hard track and push it even further, so if you love house music and hard beats, this is for you. I guarantee you will be breaking it down the entire time!

Diplo (Moombahton Massive Stage, 12:50 PM - 1:50 AM)

This will be Philadelphia based producer Thomas Wesley Pentz's second time playing the HARD Haunted Mansion, and for good reason. Owner of his own company, Mad Decent, Diplo has worked hard and has done a lot for electronic music. After collaborating with artists ranging from Tiesto to No Doubt, you can be sure you'll be in for a treat when he takes the stage next Saturday.
