HARD Summer 2016 Reveals Impressive Lineup & New Location Featuring Camping Options

For the past week, many ravers have been attempting to crack the code locking down the entire HARD Summer 2016 website and lineup. In fact, any one landing on the festival’s official page found a 1-800 number that offered an equally-confusing message: Can you imagine the world without the internet? Phones practically useless. Computers reduced to storage devices for photos and aging MP3s. Well, have no fear. Hard has set up this emergency number to get you vital Hard Fest information via hotline free from the net.”

Well, the wait is over! Today, HARD Summer 2016 revealed it’s lineup and location to the public. Check out the trailer video below featuring performers like Diplo, Flosstradamus, Zeds Dead, Mija and EDM veteran Felix da Housecat:

Other artists standing out on the impressive lineup are headliners like Major Lazer, Dillon Francis, Kill The Noise and Porter Robinson. Hip-hop has quite the presence as well with heavy hitters like Ice Cube, DJ Khaled, Travis Scott, and Fat Joe slated for the highly-anticipated summer event. And it’s new venue this year, likely the result of a recent decision to restrict raves at public venues, will apparently offer 500 acres of space, easier parking options and camping for the first time ever.

HARD Summer 2016 will be held July 30th & 31st, 2016 at it’s new location of Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. Tickets will be available this Friday, April 29th, but in the meantime, you can check out the full lineup below:

East coast origin, West coast lifestyle… Growing up I was always surrounded by the sounds of dance music in New York and Florida. However, it wasn’t until college that I was introduced to the rave scene and finally experienced the love and positivity this community is all about. I’m into warehouse undergrounds and massives like Ultra Miami, TomorrowWorld, Nocturnal Wonderland, Hard Day of the Dead, and Buku Music & Art Festival… In addition to EDM, my playlists usually have a lot of Hip-Hop, Top 40 and I’m a huge sucker for throwbacks. Hit me up if you’re attending an event in the Hollywood/LA area, as I’m always open to making new friends!
