After a 10-year hiatus that left Angelenos eagerly waiting, Hard Summer triumphantly returned to the heart of DTLA, igniting the city with an electrifying weekend of beats, bass drops, and unforgettable performances.
The multi-genre festival celebrated its fifteenth edition on a combination of stages at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Exposition Park, and BMO Stadium. Against the iconic backdrop of city lights and skyscrapers, attendees were treated to a weekend of music provided by BLOND:ISH, Diplo, Diesel, Skrillex, and Four Tet, just to name a few.
As the bass took over the streets, it became clear that the festival was right where it belongs, Los Angeles.
"We are thrilled to host HARD Summer's return to Los Angeles as part of our centennial anniversary celebration," Joe Furin, General Manager of the L.A. Coliseum, said. "As home to the most iconic events in the world, this festival is an exciting addition to our 100-year history."
From reliving our childhood memories with acts like Fat Joe and Ludacris to dancing the night away with Yellow Claw and Flosstradamus, we lived our best lives at this year's iconic iteration.
