The very first HARD on New Year’s Eve in 2007 featured Justice, 2 Live Crew, Steve Aoki and Peaches and its eclecticism would in many ways shape the festival’s diversity to this day. The HARD stage has played host to everyone from Ice Cube, The Weeknd, A$AP Mob, Pharrell and Future to Giorgio Moroder, Die Antwoord and The Chemical Brothers. Moreover, the brand has continually evolved. HARD has delivered an unforgettable experience to millions of music fans over the years and augmented the mainstream rise of many leaders in the electronic music genre including deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Justice and many more.
An easy drive from downtown Los Angeles, The Speedway in Fontana boasts an expanded foot print reaching over 500 acres and convenient parking.
