Since 2008, HARD Events have a deep rooted history of attracting the EDM Counter Culture in Los Angeles, offering up a darker, grungier alternative to festivals procured by Insomniac Events and Go Ventures. What started as a one night event at the Shrine Expo Center manifested first into a multi-state headlining tour and in 2012, HARD Summer transformed into a multi-day festival, befit for any avid music fan. From Dubstep to Drum and Bass, Deep House to Electro - HARD Festivals focus on garnering cross-genre talent that's sure to make the crowds go wild.
