Today, HARD Events has announced the lineup for the highly-anticipated return of HARD Summer Music Festival, which will take place at NOS Event Center in San Bernardino from July 29-31. The 2022 edition of HARD Summer will expand to three days for the first time, giving attendees an extra day to take in the multi-genre curation the festival has become known for.
HARD Summer 2022 will see the veteran festival push deeper and further into its singular blend of forward-thinking electronic music and cutting-edge hip-hop, as well as devoting more programming to rising artists of diverse backgrounds, spotlighting new sounds as they gain traction across the Internet and beyond.
HARD Summer will again spotlight some of the top names in electronic music including sets from live-performance icon Porter Robinson, multi-talented French musician Madeon, beloved Australian producer Alison Wonderland, Detroit funk master GRiZ, and more scene-leaders including Tchami, TOKiMONSTA, Moore Kismet, Jai Wolf, Masego, and Craze performing a drum & bass set.
In true HARD fashion, the festival will continue to make the worlds of hip-hop and rap a focus with a curational ear turned towards both emerging sounds and household names. Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion will reign as one of the event’s unmissable acts after her Coachella triumph. Meg will be joined by eccentric Philadelphia artist Lil Uzi Vert, the smooth vocal stylings of Gunna, and Southern rap legends Three 6 Mafia, plus high-energy performers like Denzel Curry, Ski Mask the Slump God, and Aminé.
Additional live artists on the HARD Summer lineup with unique sounds and performance styles include Marc Rebillet, Joji, Koffee, 100 gecs, EVAN GIIA, Bladee, Glaive, DUCKWRTH, ericdoa, DRAMA, and more.
Passes for HARD Summer will go on sale Friday May 6 at 10:00am PT and can be purchased at that time on the official HARD Summer website. Fans can secure any ticket type on layaway for a $9.95 deposit. The lowest option for layaway deposits will be available for three days only and ends May 8 at 11:59pm PT. Even with the extra day added this year, HARD Summer is focused on providing an affordable experience while still delivering the next-level festival lineup that it’s known for.
