This summer is about to go OFF! The HARD Summer 2018 lineup is officially here, and it’s a fatty. Over the past 11 years, HARD Summer—which returns to Southern California at the Speedway in Fontana Saturday, August 4, and Sunday, August 5—has continuously remained at the forefront of tastemaker bookings and forward-thinking lineups that connect today’s biggest stars with pioneers across urban and electronic music. This year continues that curation tradition with one of the biggest lineups to date. Peep the HARD Summer 2018 lineup in full below.
HARD Summer 2018 tickets go on sale Friday, April 27, at 9am PT.
This year, HARD Summer welcomes electronic music’s most buzzing stars, including chart-topping mystery man Marshmello; a very special b2b set from longtime HARD artists Diplo and Dillon Francis; the newly launched Virtual Self project by Porter Robinson; trap icon Flosstradamus; multi-genre producer TOKiMONSTA; bass legends Zeds Dead b2b Jauz; super duo Kill the Snails (Kill the Noise and Snails); the explosive Mija; streaming superstars Louis the Child; OWSLA mainstay Joyryde; techno pro Madam X; and Dirtybird upstart FISHER. With a nod to the scene’s forebears, HARD Summer will host house legends Kerri Chandler and Felix da Housecat. And in true multi-hyphenate fashion, Louis Vuitton’s artistic director and DJ, Virgil Abloh, will also perform.
Urban music once again takes center stage, with a headlining set by Travis Scott, as well as performances by hip-hop king Rick Ross and some of rap’s hottest names like Lil Xan, Lil Skies, Trippie Redd, Saweetie, $UICIDEBOY$, and YBN Nahmir.
For HARD Summer 2018, the Speedway in Fontana will be completely reimagined via brand-new stage designs and layout, all inside the Speedway and on grass; improved logistics, courtesy of Insomniac’s teams; more health and safety services and amenities; improved venue entrance, parking, and traffic logistics; and enhanced VIP experiences.
