Hard Summer Music Festival is so much more than just a few big name artists showing up on stage and performing, it’s a brilliantly orchestrated event that brings together the best hip hop, rap, and EMD artists on the planet for three life-changing days! Featuring artists like Joji, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, and more, the line up would make even the biggest festival fan lose their minds.
Hard Summer is an annual music festival that is hosted in Los Angeles on the first weekend of August, and it acts as a send-off to Summer. Next year’s line up will be announced closer to the time of the event, and you can get updates on the Discotech app. Hard Summer 2023 promises to be event crazier, so you’ll want to purchase tickets early so they don’t sell out!
