Bass and synth sounds will merge with lights and fist pumps at HARD Haunted Mansion in Downtown L.A. the weekend before Halloween.

Different genres of electronic music will band together for the two-day event, which will take place at the Shrine Expo Hall on Oct. 28 – 29. FatBoy Slim, Rusko, Laidback Luke, Soulwax, Skrillex and Major Lazer are just some of the performers from around the globe that will be mixing for the crowds.

Haunted Mansion is on its fourth installation, and has integrated itself as part of the Angeleno electronic music culture.

“L.A. is definitely one of the largest electronic dance scenes,” said Gary Richards, founder of HARD events. “There is lot of history and roots here.”

The popular event is close to being sold out.

“Tickets are currently available for both days, but I can’t guarantee that for more than a day from now,” said Clayton Blaha, publicist for Richards, in an email interview Tuesday.

Individual day tickets are $75 and available to purchase through the Groove Tickets website.
Attendees are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes to the event. However, certain costumes listed on the event’s website will not be allowed, such as full-face masks, LAPD uniforms and plush/furry attire.

A free downloadable mix is up on the HARD website as a preview to the music event.
