Many of these acts have signature looks so I thought it would be fun to adapt those traits into the canine world. When Dog Blood came along, it was just too perfect to ignore.”
HARD SUMMER will also serve as the only U.S. stop of the Ed Banger 10-Year Anniversary Tour with the Ed Banger 10th Anniversary Stage featuring Justice (DJ set), Breakbot Live, BUSY.P Ed Banger Megamix, Feadz, Mr. Oizo, So Me and special guest Brodinski. HARD SUMMER will also host the Dirtybird Players Stage featuring Claude VonStroke and members of his Dirtybird Records crew.
This year, HARD SUMMER will expand the festival running times for each day by adding four extra hours per day, starting from noon and ending at midnight Saturday, August 3 and Sunday, August 4. The festival will host four stages featuring the world's best electronic music today.
