When: August 2nd-3rd
Where: South El Monte, California
Why Go: Hard Summer earns its name with aggressive acts like DJ Snake, Kill the Noise, Nero and Flosstradamus but deserves golf claps for complimenting them with deeper DJs like London's Maya Jane Coles and New York house-heads the Martinez Brothers. And after spending last year in the shadow of Dodger Stadium, 2014's event is moving 10 miles east to the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area, which will provide room for a fifth stage and a few thousand more fans.
15 Must-See Acts: Axwell, Jack U (Skrillex and Diplo), A$AP Mob, Tiësto, Disclosure, Dillon Francis, Flosstradamus, DJ Snake, Seth Troxler, the Martinez Brothers, Martin Garrix, A-Trak, Coles, Clockwork, DJ Sliink
