HARD Summer Music Festival returns in 2021 with Future, DJ Snake B2B Malaa enlisted as headliners

HARD Summer Music Festival - 2021 lineup

HARD Summer Music Festival //
NOS Events Center – San Bernardino, CA
July 31st-August 1st, 2021 //

Four months.

With so many of us forced to spend the past year at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it might be hard to believe that live music is slowly returning in the U.S. Yet, that’s exactly how much longer it will be before California hosts its first large-scale music festival again when HARD Summer returns this July and August.

The annual two-day event, which has long leaned in the electronic direction but has incorporated more and more hip-hop acts since 2015, has moved around the greater Los Angeles area over the last several years, occupying Whittier Narrows Recreation Area in South El Monte and the Fairplex in Pomona before eventually migrating to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana for the last four editions, but HARD founder and CEO Gary Richards has found a new home less than 20 miles away.

Employing the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino for its 13th installment, HARD Summer 2021 will not only see Atlanta rapper Future headline for the first time but also a rare B2B set by DJ Snake and Malaa. Plus, the fest’s undercard offers enough of its own star power with Rezz, Dillon Francis, Kaytranada, RL Grime B2B Baauer, 2 Chainz, Don Toliver, Skream, Jauz, Kayzo, Ekali, Iann Dior, Lil Durk, Hulk Gang (Valentino Khan + 4B), Maya Jane Coles, Slushii, G Jones B2B Eprom, JOYRYDE, A-Trak, SAYMYNAME, Wax Motif, Solardo and more all scheduled to perform. Check out the poster above for the rest of the lineup.

GA and VIP passes are on sale here this Friday, April 2nd at 10 a.m. PT for fans ages 18 and over, with payment plans also available for one-day or two-day tickets after a $9.95 or $19.99 deposit.

So, who’s ready to go HARD this summer?

UPDATE (May 5th): Well, it sure sounds like plenty of people are ready to get down this summer as two-day and Saturday single-day passes are now sold out! Tickets to Sunday’s festivities are still available here so make sure to grab them before it’s too late.

Com Truise with Phantoms, Kauf, DJ Dials //
Mezzanine — San Francisco
February 27nd, 2014 (Thursday) //

Ghostly International artist and admitted synth-obsessed Com Truise will be hitting the stage this Thursday night as part of the Noise Pop Festival 2014 festivities! New York native Seth Haley has been making “mid-fi synth wave, slow motion funk” for over a decade now, and under several pseudonyms (Sarin Sunday, SYSTM, Airliner). Taking on the moniker Com Truise in 2010, Haley debuted his saturated synth-wave nostalgia-based EP Cyanide Sisters for free on the label AMdiscs. He followed this up with an armada of high profile remixes, a series of eclectic podcasts titled Komputer Cast and a self-released single, “Pyragony/Trypyra”.

Catching the attention of current label Ghostly International, Haley got signed and reissued the Cyanide Sisters EP in 2011, released his debut full-length Galactic Melt and follow up EP Fairlight that summer and had a remix of his appear on the Tron: Legacy Reconfigured album all in the same year.

2012 brought about the release of his second full length In Decay, even more remixes for Grammy Award winning artists, festival appearances and extensive international touring in support of his arrival on the Ghostly International roster.

His fourth EP WAVE 1 dropped less than one week ago and is being self-described as a “Prince meets space travel” concept piece. For your chance at a first-hand listen to the new material, along with a stellar line up of supporting acts Phantoms, Kauf and DJ Dials, register below to win.
