Variety: “Hard Summer Music Festival Returns to L.A. for First Time in a Decade”
January 31, 2023
For the first time in 10 years, Hard Summer Music Festival is coming home to Los Angeles.
The 15th installment of the dance-focused festival, scheduled for Aug. 5-6, will position Hard Summer’s to-be-announced acts across stages at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Exposition Park and BMO Stadium. This is the first time that all three venues will be used simultaneously for a live event, increasing the sense of novelty that surrounds Hard Summer’s return to downtown L.A. while catering to diverse tastes within the dance space.
While the Coliseum will welcome booming sets from bass mavens, BMO Stadium will host marquee main stage artists at the Hard Stage, with live performances to take place at the Purple Stage. Meanwhile, at Exposition Park, house and techno figureheads can be found at the Pink Stage and multi-genre talents at the Harder Stage.
