HARD Events Announces Big Venue Improvements for HARD Summer 2018

Good news HARD Summer lovers! Today, HARD Events announced that HARD Summer 2018 will return to the Fontana Speedway August 4th – 5th, completely reimagined with some big changes set to take place at HARD’s flagship event.

HARD Summer 2018 will see the continuation of the forward-thinking electronic music and urban curation that HARD is known for, along with a brand new redesigned festival footprint and all new stage designs under Insomniac Events.

HARD has gone all out with improvements to HARD Summer, making it a much more accessible, immersive, and comfortable festival for all attendees to enjoy. The newly redesigned stages will be moved to the cool, spacious grass infield, with new VIP dance areas added to every stage. In addition to that, the VIP experience will also include plenty of new summer-fun themed amenities and activities.

Getting into the festival will also be greatly improved with new, wider entrances into the festival located closer to the parking lots and added entry lanes. In addition, multiple new shaded areas and water refill stations are going to be added throughout the venue to help alleviate heat concerns. Health and safety operations at HARD Summer will now be overseen by Insomniac’s Ground Control teams, while traffic and parking logistics will be headed by Insomniac Production; all with the ultimate goal of providing a safer and smoother experience for all attendees.


Aside from the improved production of the event, HARD fans can expect plenty of outrageous and surprise musical performances that have become synonymous with the HARD experience. HARD Summer 2017 brought out names like Snoop Dogg, DJ Snake, Dog Blood, Rae Sremmurd, Zeds Dead, Bassnectar, Migos, Skepta, Ty Dolla $ign, Claude Von Stroke, What So Not, Baauer, Kill The Noise, Anna Lunoe, Tinashe, and many more of some of the most influential acts in modern music. Be on the lookout for this year’s lineup to see who will be coming out at HARD Summer 2018.

It is with a clear focus on the fan experience and an unwavering commitment to assembling one of the year’s best lineups that HARD Summer prepares for its biggest and best rendition yet.
