HARD Day of the Dead 2018

HARD Day of the Dead is on the horizon once again and we’ve put together a Spotify Playlist so you can explore the sounds that will be featured this year! 


The return of HARD Day of the Dead was highly anticipated last year and the HARD Events team truly knocked it out of the park. In just a matter of days, the second edition of this rebooted festival will once again take over the LA Historic State Park. One of my favorite memories from last year was being able to sit on real grass while watching the sun disappear behind the LA Skyline and I can’t wait to experience it all over again.

This year, the lineup features a variety of house and techno artists as the single-day event aims to celebrate Dia de Los Muertos with major names like Dog Blood, The Martinez Brothers, and ZHU among others. Not to mention the ever wonderful Justin Martin whose sets always have us feeling some type of way along with rising star 1788-L and elrow ambassador Melé as well.

To help you explore the sounds that will be pumping through the speakers at HARD Day of the Dead this year, I’ve compiled a playlist of tunes to taste ahead of the show. It’s the perfect length for that drive to the event or when you’re stuck in that terrible traffic that plagues Los Angeles.

If you’re like me and missing out on other Halloween events due to other obligations then this should be an easy choice to get your fall festival fix. Be sure to favorite the songs you may not know and get ready to rage with us at the event!

Tickets are still available so don’t delay and scoop yours today via FrontGate! Let us know in the comments if you plan to be there.
