About a week ago I was lucky enough to take a road trip down to good old Los Angeles to attend Hard Summer Music Festival. Located in the heart of downtown LA, Hard Festival had a line-up composed of so much good dance music I was sweating before I even got there.

Some highlights:

Little Dragon getting the night started

Miike Snow

Boyz Noize

Dillon Francis lookin’ SHARP


One of my favs, Chromeo DJ set

A-Trak, in my opinion the man of the festival, nuff said.

Happiest crowd on Earth.

The killer jams kept me pretty occupied all weekend, however I was keeping my eyes to the ground and checking out peoples shoes. Unfortunately the ground was super dusty and dirty (my Jeffrey Campbell Coltranes got NASTY) so most people had shoes on they knew they could wear to shit. Vans, Nikes, Converse, and basic sandals graced most feet. As for everyone else, cray cray raver boots appeared uber popular amongst the Hard crowd. Take a peep:

Next time I need to add strobe lights and fur to my shoes and i’ll fit right in.
