HARD Summer Music Festival extends to three days in 2022 with Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Uzi Vert & Porter Robinson atop the bill

Hard Summer Music Festival - 2022 lineup

NOS Events Center – San Bernardino, CA
July 29th-31st, 2022 //

If you thought Gary Richards was bold after dropping a 2021 lineup for HARD Summer while we were still in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, the HARD founder and CEO isn’t letting up now.

This time, he’s adding a third day for the annual Southern California music festival that returns late July to the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino after moving all around the greater Los Angeles area over the last few years — whether it was Whittier Narrows Recreation Area in South El Monte, the Fairplex in Pomona or Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.

HARD Summer has long leaned in the electronic direction given Richard’s pedigree as a DJ, but it has incorporated more and more hip-hop acts since 2015 and the 14th edition follows in the same vein with Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Uzi Vert and Porter Robinson sitting atop the bill.

Meanwhile, plenty of other big names throughout the undercard are also worth calling out, such as Joji, Alison Wonderland, Chris Lake, Zeds Dead B2B Subtronics, GRiZ, Madeon, Gunna, NGHTMRE, Marc Rebillet, Tchami, Denzel Curry, Jai Wolf, 100 Gecs and more. Peep the poster above for the rest of this year’s roster.

GA, GA+ and VIP passes are on sale this Friday, May 6th at 10 a.m. PT here for fans ages 18 and over, with payment plans also available for one-day or three-day tickets after a $9.95 deposit.

Shlohmo takes his SF fans at Mezzanine for a spin

ShlohmoBy Lisette Worster //

Shlohmo with Dj Dials, ChaunceyCC, Marco De La Vega //
Mezzanine – San Francisco
March 26th, 2016 //

Shlohmo’s headlining show in SF last Saturday proved to be an intimate event co-presented by Mezzanine and concert subscription-based app Jukely.

To kick off the night, local DJs ChaunceyCC and Marco de la Vega played back-to-back sets, leading into a hip-hop-fueled performance by Dj Dials before it was Shlohmo’s turn to take the stage.

As soon as Shlohmo (born Henry Laufer) jumped on the decks, the mood shifted to a dark red, much like when we watched him perform his first live band tour in his native Los Angeles last year (see more photos from the show here). With the venue packed from the front to the back, Shlohmo played everything from his original tracks to even some Lil B.

Blue Sky Black Death, Real Magic with ChaunceyCC //
The Independent – San Francisco
July 11th, 2014 (Friday) //

The Independent presents another evening of futuristic production from one of the West Coast’s finest in avant-garde music making. Blue Sky Black Death push boundaries far out there with its no-holds-barred process of sampling, layering and generally going deep into space in composition. Having worked its way up the local circuit, it’s now time for BSBD to take center stage for what is sure to be a banner show for the pair. Similarly left-leaning act in nature, Real Magic will offer direct support while touting a similar resume of critical praise from all the major music outlets (i.e. Stereogum, Pitchfork and The FADER). ChaunceyCC rounds out a superb bill, and we got a few lucky readers covered. -Kevin Quandt
