Los Angeles HARDEST Summer 2023
The return of the highly-anticipated HARD Summer Music Festival has once again made its way back into our summer agendas. Taking place in Los Angeles from August 5-6, the 2023 edition of HARD Summer has shortened its original 3-day festival to a 2-day festival, BUT is now going to be Los Angeles BIGGEST music festival in history giving attendees more space to dance, headbang and vibe at the multi-genre curation. HARD Summer 2023 will see the veteran festival push deeper and further into its singular blend of forward-thinking electronic music and cutting-edge hip-hop, as well as devoting more programming to rising artists of diverse backgrounds, spotlighting new sounds as they gain traction across the Internet and beyond.
HARD Summer will again spotlight some of the top names in electronic music including sets from live-performance icon Kaskade and John Summit, multi-talented man, myth and legend DIESAL (aka Shaq), daddy-DJ Diplo with a B2B with Blond:ISH and the silly-goofy man himself, Dillon Francis among other incredible talent.
The festival will continue to make the worlds of hip-hop and rap a focus with a curational ear turned towards both emerging sounds and household names. Kid Cudi, 21 Savage, Fat Joe, and the legend from the Now That’s What I Call Music CDs, Ludacris.
Don’t worry, Hard Summer didn’t forget about the headbangers and neck breakers. On the bass music front, attendees can bear witness to a B2B performance from Kaskade B2B John Summit, Kayzo B2B Sullivan King and last but not least, Yellow Claw and Floss (if you’re an OG raver back in the rise of trap 2012).
I’ve been attending and working Hard Summer Music Festivals since 2015, and I must admit that this is the best line-up since 2015. Passes for HARD Summer are already on sale and can be purchased at that time on the official HARD Summer website. Snag that ticket, and gather your crew!
Until then, see you on the dance floor 🙂
