This year’s edition of HARD Summer is set to bring legendary acts and rising stars alike, so we curated a playlist to get you pumped!


HARD Summer Music Festival has long now been known as the ultimate union of the dance music and hip-hop genres. Bringing together attendees of all different cultures and lifestyles, it’s become a staple for many Southern California festival-goers over the years. Recently making its home at the NOS Events Center, HARD Summer is set to make its return to the venue on July 29-31 and boasts of yet another incredible lineup to provide the soundtrack for the show.

This year, HARD Summer is set to bring a wide variety of talented artists who have been on fire as of late, including Tchami, Ivy Lab, ISOXO, Marc Rebillet, DIMENSION, DEATHPACT, Lucille Croft, and headliners Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Uzi Vert, and Porter Robinson. You also won’t want to miss out on sets from GRiZ, Chris Lake, and Nicole Moudaber, and Zeds Dead is also set to play two b2bs at the festival, one with Subtronics and the other with Sub Focus.

Attendees are sure to have a great time bouncing between the festival’s five stages as they deal with set time conflicts galore. To prepare for the incoming indecisiveness, we put together a playlist of all artists on the HARD Summer lineup this year to help you find your flavor! Check out some of your favorite anticipated artists, find new artists to fall in love with, and expand your palette for this year’s edition.
