LA Festival, HARD Summer 2023, drops lineup packed with insane B2Bs

HARD Events is back this summer with yet another stacked lineup for its fifteenth edition of HARD Summer 2023. Alongside the amazing lineup reveal with historic B2Bs (two or more performers join forces to share the turntables, trading off on song selections and hyping up the crowd manifold.), HARD Summer announced its return to Downtown Los Angeles after a ten year run at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino. The two day festival will take place across the campuses of Exposition Park, the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and BMO Stadium on August 5th and 6th. 

The lineup announcement has already revealed who will play which day of the festival, eliminating the ‘daily lineup’ question. Saturday, August 5th is top billed with Kaskade B2B John Summit, Diplo B2B Blond:ish, and special guest 21 Savage. Sunday’s feature is Skrillex B2B Four Tet, Grammy-winning Black Coffee, and special guest Kid Cudi. The roster stays true to the multi-genre philosophy we have seen over the years. HARD also offers a wide variety of up-and-coming artists, underground kings and queens of the scene, plus those massive night-closing mind-melting headliners to curate a festival to perfection. The legendary Boys Noize, LA’s big personality Dillon Francis, and chart-toppers Gordon City will all make their veteran returns this year at HARD Summer. The rap and hip-hop scene will be represented by the one and only Ludacris (LUDA!) and Fat Joe.
