From July 31 to August 1, Hard Summer Music Festival is returning to the National Orange Show Event Center in San Bernardino, California. The famous eclectic music festival that is known for attracting young EDM and hip-hop music lovers is going to be outdoors and can be held at 33% capacity.
This year’s lineup includes Future, Kaytranada, Dillon Francis, Don Toliver, and many more exciting additions.
Organized by Live Nation, there were no announcements made concerning the COVID-19 health regulations that will be strictly enforced for festival-goers.
