A thanks to everyone who participated and entered our Rawthentix x Interscope giveaway. Last week we gave a lucky winner a pair of tickets to attend Hard, NYC and see MIA perform along with other talent that included Skream + Benga, Die Antwoord, Sleigh Bells, Rye Rye and many more. We received 123 entries which resulted with a raffle—congratulations to Elaine S. Hope you had an amazing time. The day was long and hot but cooled down providing everyone breezes and a light show from both stages set up. Anyone happen to get the free refills of lemonade? They were delicious and kept us going all night.

Stand out performances included Rye Rye who showcased and danced for an hour straight in the heat before the sun set. We love that young lady! Sleigh Bells played a metal-rock-eletronic fused set we double loved. MIA was the last act to place center stage singing some crowd favorites that included Bucky Done Gun as well as XXXO off her third and newest album /\/\ /\ Y /\. The air was filled with camera lights with ladies pushing in the crowd when announced to come on stage. A favorite to many (including us) the verdict is still split with her latest album released- less pop electronic and much more experimental, borderline confusing for some. Did you attend? What was your take on the entire event. Take a look at a few images after the flip. Stay tuned for a few more surprises to drop this summer and fall. You’re not going to want and miss out. A big thanks to R.M. from Interscope for everything.
