Taking a new home at LA’s Whittier Narrows Recreational Park, HARD Summer celebrated its biggest year yet with 100 acts spread over five stages. In the four-minute recap we get a full FOMO-inducing taste of the weekend’s outlandish party, and we get up close and personal with its many mainstage pros. See snippets of legendary moments from Diplo and Skrillex supergroup Jack U, Axwell, Disclosure (accompanied by R&B queen Mary J. Blige), and of course HARD CEO Gary Richards aka Destructo.
Couldn’t make it to this year’s event? Not to worry–you’ll have another chance to join the HARD brigade when their spooktacular festival, HARD Day Of The Dead, returns Nov. 1-2 for another 24 hours of insanity. They’ve recruited a number of top-billing acts including Knife Party, Pretty Lights (live), Calvin Harris, and a special guest stage, Mau5ville, curated by Eric Prydz and deadmau5.
