HARD Events will celebrate 10 years as a company this summer with its flagship event, HARD Summer. But before that, the promotion company and founder Gary Richards will be featured in a new documentary via MTV Live entitled HARD10-A DECADE OF CRASHING SOUND BARRIERS WITH HARD, HOLY SHIP! AND DESTRUCTO this Saturday, June 10 at 9:00pm ET.
When you tune in, you’ll be able to check out archival footage of HARD’s first-ever party HARD NYE in Los Angeles in 2007 as Justice, Steve Aoki and Peaches rang in the new year. There is also behind the scenes footage of DJ AM’s epic Daft Punk set from HARD Haunted Mansion in 2008, as well as interviews with Richards and HARD luminaries and fans Steve Aoki, DJ Snake, Giorgio Moroder, Dita Von Teese, Claude VonStroke, Too $hort, Anna Lunoe, Duke Dumont, Justin Martin and Ghastly. Of course, the piece will also be soundtracked by some of HARD’s favorites including Dog Blood, Giorgio Moroder, Justin Martin, Ghastly and more.
“The music landscape has changed drastically over the last 10 years but one thing always remains the same good music is good music. When HARD was getting off the ground, it was about bringing people together in downtown LA to experience quality music together,” says Gary Richards. “It’s incredible how much the HARD audience has grown and I’m thankful for all the fans around the globe that have come to celebrate with us at our festivals, stages and aboard HOLY SHIP! I am thankful for all the amazing artists who performed at the festival over the years. You really made HARD hard. I hope this MTV piece sheds some light on the past 10 year history of HARD and my life.”
