HARD Summer is a melting pot of festival cultures with a unique mix of dance music and rap icons. For many stage hoppers young and old, HARD Summer has been the place where they first fell in love with festivals. The balance of rap and dance music makes HARD Summer a great festival for newcomers to experience everything that rave culture stands for while being able to enjoy sets from their favorite rap artists.
Insomniac first purchased HARD Summer in 2012 and was fully in control by 2017. With Insomniac behind the wheel, we watched as HARD Summer became bigger and bigger every year. 2022 will mark the biggest HARD Summer yet with the festival expanding to three days July 29-31.
