“In Gary We Trust,” is something that I have constantly heard amongst the Los Angeles dance music community since my first HARD Summer three years ago. This phrase refers to the founder of HARD Presents, Gary Richards, who also moonlights as the world-renown DJ, Destructo.  Now I understand why people put so much faith in their fearless leader that they coined a phrase like that. Gary has proven time and time again that he will bring the HARDest (no pun intended), most diverse, stacked lineups to Los Angeles each August, and this year is no exception.

HARD Summer’s lineup this year is, in my opinion, the single best one to date because of the incredible diversity and stature of acts.  On one end of the spectrum, you have international superstar DJs like Tiesto and Axwell, sure to drop top 40 favorites while closing out the night, but then you have Jack U, the brain child of Skrillex and Diplo, as well as Nero which provide a sort of saving grace for bass music advocates.  Social media enthusiast and all around fan-favorite, Dillon Francis, will be joining the ranks of Disclosure, The A$AP Mob, and Flosstradamus as a headliner for the weekend, having only been introduced to the HARD family in 2011 at the very bottom of the lineup (We were all rooting for you dude!). We’re excited to see what the new move to Whittier Narrows Recreational Area will be like, but with a lineup like this, how could it possibly disappoint?

Be sure to check out the entire lineup below!
