Insomniac drops stacked HARD Summer 2021 lineup

Okay ya’ll… festivals are back and they are GOIN’ HARD this year… yes, total pun intended! Powered by Insomniac, HARD Summer Music Festival is joining the bandwagon of lineup announcements and they’ve officially released they are returning this year in San Bernardino, CA with an expanded blueprint and an incredibly stacked lineup to compete. Big names in the world of rap, hip hop and EDM top the lineup, featuring Future, Rezz, DJ Snake, Malaa and so many more!

Set your notifications for these tickets, people — they will go fast! 

A noticeable delight in this year’s lineup is the total range of genre in our EDM artists. DJ Snake will be playing his headlining set b2b with dance master Malaa. Our other mainstage-er, Rezz, has defined ‘HARD’ on her new singles, released during the past year’s pandemic state: “Sacrificial (feat PVRIS)”, “Orbit” and, my personal favorite, “Someone Else” with Graves. Dillion Francis is also on the top of the bill, undoubtedly to debut live his new singles “Places” (with Drove) and “Be Somebody” (with Evie Irie). Other mentionable names in the dubstep/trap field of electronic music are RL Grime b2b with BAAUER (wow, I can not WAIT to get my Harlam Shake on!!). Skream! is bringing it back with the old school that’ll take you back to the gold ol’ days of 2010-2012 dubstep, smooth jazz house and even some disco vibes in there. Another honorable mention that we see in EDM land on the 2021 lineup is the self proclaimed ‘Hulk Gang’, made up of housemasters Valentino Kahn and 4B… another wild back-to-back set you absolutely cannot miss! 

The electronic music game comes in really strong this year at HARD Summer, with our other main stage house king Kaytranada, followed by Kayzo, Slushii, Joyryde, SAYMYNAME, Solardo, Jauz, Ekali, Maya Jane Coles, G Jones playing back-to-back with Eprom (another beautiful combination), A-Trak, Wax Motif, Yultron, Virtual Riot, Dombresky, Blunts & Blondes, Walker & Royce, charlesthefirst, K?D, Lee Foss, Riot Ten, JSTJR, Elohim, Noizu, Ardalan, Born Dirty, Phantoms, Manila Killa, Whipped Cream, Mr. Carmack, BIJOU, Drezo, Nitti Gritti playing back-to-back with Wuki (all dubsteppers, unite!!), 1788-L, the self proclaimed Bad Boys Club’ (featuring Cray and GG Magree… all dance enthusiasts, unite!!), VNSSA, Prospa, Bleep Bloop, Soul Clap, Partiboi69, Sage Armstrong, Craze, Tynan, Softest Hard, Hekler, Cassian, Lucati, Anabel Englund, Holly, Nina Las Vegas, Hex Cougar, LICK, Biicla, Austin Millz, ZiA, Schade, Nostalgix, Cam Girl, Monoky, Dack Janiels, SIPPY,  Benda, Capozzi, Nitepunk, Godlands, Lisbonda Sisters, Ranger Trucco, Thee Mike B, Arius, Ravell, 2DEEP and Dials. 

In our world of rap and hip hop, Future headlines our grande finalé on Saturday, July 31st; jamming to the hit “Mask Off” at a live festival this summer sounds like what we all need in life right now! Other big names announced are 2 Chainz, Don Toliver, Lil Durk, Iann Dior, Rubi Rose, Mario Judah, DJ Scheme and Austin Millz. We’ve even got some pop vibes thrown in there!
