While HARD Summer is the main attraction for many, shows are happening around Los Angeles to keep the party rolling all weekend.
This year has already been a massive one for HARD Events as they announced that their flagship festival, HARD Summer, would be making its grand return to Los Angeles proper for its upcoming edition and then dropped a lineup that was filled to the brim with talented artists. From Kaskade b2b John Summit and Skrillex b2b Four Tet to other standouts like Deorro, Gorgon City, Dillon Francis, Oliver Tree, Kid Cudi, and Black Coffee, there will be plenty of sounds to explore on August 5-6.
But while HARD Summer’s takeover of LA Memorial Coliseum, Exposition Park, and BMO Stadium will make this edition even larger than life, HARD Events is sprawling to other reaches of Los Angeles throughout the weekend. Today, they announced the lineup for HARD Weekender, a series of pre and after-parties that will take place from August 4-6, featuring some of the top artists on the lineup.
On August 4, the HARD Weekender festivities will kick off as Kayzo takes the stage at Academy LA and Sullivan King graces the decks at Exchange LA, while Boys Noize and Nikki Nair will play at the 930 Mateo St. Warehouse. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though.
Saturday packs a punch with after-parties featuring John Summit, The Martinez Brothers, Loco Dice, NITTI & Friends, and Hayden James, while the show at The Belasco featuring Wilkinson, Luude, and Alix Perez is sure to be a must-attend for drum and bass lovers. The party doesn’t stop on Sunday either, as Black Coffee is set to play Exchange LA while Yung Bae, DEVAULT, and Young Franco will head to 1720 Warehouse to close out the festivities.
Tickets for all HARD Weekender shows are available now and are sure to move quickly. Head over to their official website to make your purchase, and let us know which show you’re planning to be at on Twitter!
