Things are opening back up across the US, with more summer festival circuit hallmarks picking back up near their usual range of dates. HARD Summer has announced their returning lineup, pulling out all the stops for what should be a special 2021 edition of the event. This year’s roster is brimming with marquee talent including Dillon Francis, REZZ, A-Trak, and Kayzo, as well as planned back-to-backs from DJ Snake and Malaa, RL Grime and Baauer, G Jones and EPROM, an old school dubstep set from SKREAM!, and much more.
Additional lineup highlights include Valentino Khan and 4B sharing the decks as Hulk Gang, CRAY and GG Magree‘s Bad Boys Club, Wuki and Nitti Gritti‘s slated go back-to-back, plus a mixed bag of firepower from the likes of Kaytranada, Lee Foss, 1788-L, SAYMYNAME, Soul Clap, Manila Killa, Nina Las Vegas, Craze, Maya Jane Coles, and many more. Aligned with HARD’s usual curatorial style, hip-hop is in strong representation on this year’s ticket with Future, 2 Chainz, Lil Durk Don Toliver, and more holding down key slots on the lineup.
HARD Summer touches down at its new home at NOS Events Center in San Bernardino on Saturday, July 31 and Sunday, August 1. HARD will be working closely with local officials to implement necessary safety precautions and will follow state and local health guidelines in place at the time of the event.
