In somewhat surprising and welcome news, Hard Fest returns to downtown LA this August taking over the entire LA Coliseum site both inside and outside! This will be the first EDM festival inside the Coliseum since EDC. (We could the Kx5 show last December more as a concert!)
In addition to the Coliseum, the inside of BMO Stadium (formerly Banc of California Stadium) as well as three large open areas will be utilized for the festival.
Tickets go on sale this Friday and you can buy on a layaway plan for only $2.13 deposit right here! (The $2.13 offer is only good for tomorrow, February 3rd, 2023, to celebrate the events return to the 213 area code).
“We are thrilled to host HARD Summer’s return to Los Angeles as part of our centennial anniversary celebration,” said Joe Furin, General Manager of the LA Coliseum. “As home to the most iconic events in the world, this festival is an exciting addition to our 100-year history.”
Fans of several genres and styles will be able to explore the new home of HSMF in a fully immersive environment. While fans of more obscure subgenres of house and techno may catch their favorite international icons on the Pink Stage at Christmas Tree Lane Park, admirers of dance music’s greatest mainstage artists can rock out at the HARD Stage at the Green Lot on the south side of BMO Stadium. On the HARDER Stage on the South Lawn, where mind-blowing headlining performances by the industry’s leading titans have become the norm, multi-genre curation will triumph. Bass music devotées can ride the rail at the festival’s Green Stage inside the Coliseum. Those looking for new talent will see a spotlight shined on live acts and new subgenres inside BMO stadium on the Purple Stage.
As part of Hard Fest weekend there will be multiple after-parties across the city to be announced soon.
