Skrillex, Deadmau5 Headline Hard Day of the Dead Fest

Skrillex, Deadmau5, Flying Lotus, Future, A$AP Ferg, Hot Chip and Glass Animals are among the artists that will perform at this year’s Hard Day of the Dead festival, which returns to Pomona, California’s Fairplex on October 31st and November 1st. Method Man & Redman, Gesaffelstein, Armand Van Helden, Juicy J, Ryan Hemsworth and many more will head to the Halloween weekend fest that also celebrates the annual Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos.

Deadmau5, Future, Hot Chip, Nero and Flying Lotus will headline the Saturday, October 31st festivities while Skrillex, a Gesaffelstein DJ set, Glass Animals, A$AP Ferg and a still-unannounced headliner will topline Sunday’s performances. Other acts at the EDM-leaning Day of the Dead festival include Vic Mensa, Felix da Housecat, Bonobo, Alison Wonderland, Groove Armada, Tommy Trash and Kill the Noise.

Early bird tickets for the fest are available now through Ticketmaster, but anyone under drinking age, be warned: According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, this year’s Hard Day of the Dead fest has imposed a strict 21+ age limit and an 11 p.m. curfew in order to avoid Los Angeles County’s crackdown on electronic dance music festivals.

The countywide ban on EDM festivals comes after two teenage girls died from suspected overdoses at another HARD event in early August. The incident led to the cancellation of the one-day A Night of a Fairplex EDM fest in September, but Live Nation, which run the Hard fests, agreed to place age limitations and cap attendance at 40,000 festivalgoers for the Day of the Dead event as a compromise with county officials. Live Nation also agreed to provide increased security, medical services and access to free water as well as produce and distribute drug education at Hard Day of the Dead.

The Real-Life Jerry Heller Is Probably About To Sue The Makers of ‘Straight Outta Compton’

Straight Outta Compton has already seen a couple controversies hover over its extremely well-received release, and today, it appears they have another one headed their way.

Jerry Heller, Eazy-E‘s manager and an integral part of the infrastructure that helped to catapult N.W.A. to astronomic success, was portrayed by Paul Giamatti as somewhat of a contradiction–a compassionate businessman who used the group’s lack of knowledge of the music industry to his financial advantage.

Apparently, Heller, who recently saw the movie, is not okay with how things played out. We already know that he was not consulted about the film, thanks to his interview with Grantland, but it sounds as if his portrayal will prompt him to take legal action. His comments to the L.A. Times were as follows.

I did see it on Saturday, and I’m still not willing to comment right now on that movie because I think sooner or later it may be part of an ongoing litigation.

We’ll see where this goes.
