Hard Summer

When: August 1st-2nd

Where: Pomona, California

Why Go: Last year, Hard moved from the shadow of Dodger Stadium to the more suburban Whittier Narrows Recreation Area. Come August, it heads even farther into the Inland Empire, bringing with it not just the aggressive EDM described in the name (Jack Ü, Dillon Francis, RL Grime) but also the slightly smoother sounds of craftsmen like Gorgon City and Jamie xx.

Must-See Acts: Jack Ü, Rae Sremmurd, Dillon Francis, RL Grime, Young Thug, Hudson Mohawke, Zeds Dead, Boys Noize, DJ Mustard and Friends, the Weeknd, Salva, MK, Caribou, Fetty Wap, Lunice
