Die Antwoord, Sleigh Bells and FlyLo make HARD L.A. 100% more Zef [Updated]

Dieantwoord If we haven't already convinced you that Die Antwoord are the mulleted, Pink-Floyd-boxer-clad saviors of everything good and right about music, then you can go take a proverbial walk off a proverbial pier. But if we have won you over with our treatises to the South African "phat rap-rave" trio, you'll be pleased to know that July 17's HARD Festival at Los Angeles State Historic Park just got significantly more Zef.

The festival just added Die Antwoord and the equally Fres (but decidedly less Zef) Flying Lotus, Sleigh Bells and N.E.R.D. to an already packed lineup headlined by M.I.A., who will hopefully not be exacting vengeance on redheads that night. Tickets are on sale now for $60, and I'd be willing to barter a couple for a Die Antwood sweatsuit, as seen above on the ever-fun-to-type Yo-Landi Vi$$er.

[UPDATE] Added the date of HARD L.A. and corrected Yo-Landi Vi$$er's last name. Least Zef typo ever.
