Earlier this week we reported that HARD Summer was teasing their lineup with an old-school website. You’re prompted with a black screen asking for a login and password, leaving many questions unasked.
Today @HARDFEST posted a video to their Twitter account with the caption “omg the internet is dead!” – a 13-second clip of a post-apocalytic city alleyway that we can all guess is the world without the internet. It’s safe to say #RIPTHEINTERNET will have some sort of prominent theme in the event this year.
As HARD continues to leave this trail of breadcrumbs for HARD fans and attendees, the next clue is here: you can unlock the website using the password PANDA.
