N.E.R.D.Organizers for the HARD announced this week the additions of some new acts — they include N.E.R.D., Die Antwoord, Jason Bentley and others to an already incredible line-up.

Popular UK act, M.I.A., is already headlining the L.A. date at the Los Angeles State Historic Park on July 17th, but she’ll now be backed by the aforementioned artists, as well as previously announced acts such as Rye Rye, Theophilus London, 12th Planet, Borgore, The Gaslamp Killer, Destructo, and Ninjasonik.

HARD is notorious for bringing the biggest names of electronic, dance, hip-hop and rock scenes together for one amazing show. With the currently line-up, the upcoming fest shouldn’t be any different.

General admission tickets for HARD LA / M.I.A. are available for only $60 or the low price of $100 when you purchase tickets for HARD Summer and HARD LA / M.I.A. online at Fla.vor.us.

After HARD LA / M.I.A., there will be a festival in New York City on July 24, followed by the HARD Summer Music Festival on August 7th, and then the Hard Haunted Manison on October 30th.

HARD is giving fans an opportunity that can’t be bought — a chance to win VIP tickets. M.I.A. caused quite a stir with her new video for “Born Free” last week (watch it here), so this week HARD is challenging fans to do the same by launching the HARD Video Contest.

Fans are challenged to create their own HARD video and five winners will be chosen and awarded VIP tickets to Hard LA / M.I.A. Find out how to enter over at the fest’s official website at HardFest.com. The deadline to submit is May 25th.
