For its 10th edition, HARD Summer continues to mix EDM with hip-hop on its 2017 lineup

HARD Summer Music Festival - 2017 lineup

Auto Club Speedway – Fontana, CA
August 5th-6th, 2017 //

Last July, HARD Summer spent its first year at its new home of Auto Club Speedway.

The two-day, electronic-focused music festival had occupied LA State Historic Park for a few years before moving to Whittier Narrows Recreation Area in South El Monte and the Fairplex in Pomona, but HARD founder and CEO Gary Richards’ annual event has seemingly found a more permanent location in Fontana and at a NASCAR race track no less, much like Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) has done in partnering with Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

As we started to see in 2015, HARD has once again moved away from booking strictly EDM artists and is now regularly incorporating more mainstream hip-hop acts into its roster. The 2017 lineup follows down that path, with Snoop Dogg, Rae Sremmurd and Migos sitting atop the bill next to electronic heavyweights like DJ Snake, Justice (DJ set), Dog Blood, Zeds Dead and Bassnectar. But the big selling point for most music fans should be the fact that Snoop will perform his 1993 landmark debut album Doggystyle in full on the festival’s second day.

Meanwhile, other notables names lined up for HARD include Tchami, Jai Wolf, Cashmere Cat, Snakehips, Skepta, Claude VonStroke, Ty Dolla $ign, What So Not, Malaa, Baauer, A-Trak, Kill the Noise, Mobb Deep, JME, YehMe2, Mike Will Made It, Doctor P, Destructo, Anna Lunoe, 12th Planet, Kayzo, Tinashe, E-40, MadeinTYO, Brodinski, Brillz, Charli XCX, Party Favor and many more. Check out the poster above for the rest of the lineup.

Back for its second year at HARD, camping will be permitted and allow festivalgoers to easily go in and out of the festival grounds, which span more than 500 acres. Two-day passes to the 18-and-over event can be purchased here for $129 starting this Friday, April 28th at 9 a.m. and single-day tickets will be available for $89.
