HARD Summer will carry out its mission as a cultural barometer of who and what’s trending in modern music, always prevailing as a cutting-edge festival with multi-genre curation at the center of its ethos. Fans can still expect industry leading performances from today’s most in-demand headliners and tomorrow’s superstars, a calling card synonymous with the storied HARD experience.
HARD Summer will again welcome some of electronic music’s most momentous acts, including a special back to back set from dance music icons DJ Snake and Malaa, genre-blending beatsmith REZZ, Grammy winning producer Kaytranada, HARD favorite Dillon Francis, a special “Old Skool Dubstep Set” from Skream!, and the similarly massive pairing of trap legends Baauer and RL Grime. Bass music continues its triumph with sets by JAUZ, Kayzo, Ekali, Slushii, JOYRYDE, SAYMYNAME, Yultron, Virtual Riot, k?d, and a back to back set from experimental bass pioneers G Jones and EPROM, followed by a showcase of leading house selectors like underground dance music sensation Maya Jane Coles, tech-house power players Solardo, Hot Creations co-founder Lee Foss, and DIRTYBIRD mainstays Walker & Royce, Ardalan, and VNSSA.
Rap will continue to be at the centerstage of HARD Summer as well with headlining sets from Future, 2 Chainz, Don Toliver, and Iann Dior plus some of hip-hop’s most relevant names like Lil Dark, Mario Judah, $NOT, Rubi Rose, and DJ Scheme.
With its debut at NOS Event Center, festival goers will revel in a new expanded layout that will provide plenty of shade on the lush shores of its one-acre lagoon. HARD Summer will transform the venue’s fairgrounds and racetrack with five outdoor stages, including the iconic HARD Stage that has hosted some of the biggest names in contemporary music. With the utmost comfort of attendees in mind, there will be free water stations, shade structures, and cooling mist systems located throughout the venue. Fans who opt for the VIP package will enjoy additional dedicated shade areas and the HARD Splash Pool, complete with floaties. Also included for VIPs are signature food and cocktails available for purchase at cash bars, dedicated bathrooms, expedited festival entrance, special dance areas at each stage and more.
HARD has also released a lineup video showing off the humorous side of the brand with a “special appearance” from DJ Crap My Pants. Watch to see fan favorite DJs act alongside a celebrity cameo from comedian and YouTube star Trevor Wallace.
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.
It is with brighter days ahead that HARD Summer will lead the 2021 festival calendar with one of the year’s biggest lineups and production plans, making it this summer’s most anticipated music festival.
