HARD Summer Announcements Include VIP Pool and NWA Performance

HARD Summer is quickly approaching, and with that comes the inevitable flood of questions from attendees wanting to know what the festival has in store this year.

The two-day event, which takes place on July 30 and 31, will be at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana – a first for the brand. It will also be the first time the festival will be introducing camping. HARD took it upon itself to shed some light on what festivalgoers can expect once they get there by answering some questions on its Twitter account.

Big news: HARD is removing all of its beer gardens, a big change for the now 18+ festival. Unlike last year, attendees wanting to purchase a drink can now freely roam the grounds with it.

Ice Cube, the headliner on Saturday, will be bringing out NWA for a special performance.

This year, those with VIP tickets will have access to the swimming pool located next to the HARD stage. Additionally, all ticket upgrades will be handled onsite at the box office.

HARD also promises five stages this year – HARD, HARDer, Purple, Pink, and Green – with additional stages at the campgrounds. Campers wanting to party after the festival has ended can now head over to the silent disco, which will go on until 2 A.M. and feature special guests.

The festival will also be providing vegan food options and showers for all of their campers. According to Twitter, the lineups for each stage will be announced next week as well.
