We’ve compiled our list of ten must-see acts at this year’s two-day festival. Check out our ten can’t-miss HARD Summer performances below and let us know who you’ll be seeing in the comments.
Set Time: Sunday 10:00-11:00 PM @ HARDer Stage
RL Grime is making his grand return to HARD Summer. RL Grime always puts on a phenomenal performance and his HARD Summer set will be no different. The producer recently dropped an insane edit of G Jones’ “In Your Head” along with the promise of more edits to come, many of which are likely to be sprinkled throughout his performance.
Set Time: Saturday 10:00-11:00 PM @ HARDer Stage
Alison Wonderland is one of the best live performers in all of electronic music. She expertly combines live vocals, cello, and DJing into her sets and always leaves fans wanting more. Her Saturday night closing set on the HARDer Stage conflicts with some of the nights biggest sets like Kid Cudi, DJ Snake B2B Malaa, and GTA and Friends, but she’s definitely worth it.
