RPM’s August Festival: HARD Summer

Destructo is back once again with a hot lineup to heat up your summer!

The event will be moving to the Glen Helen Amphitheater & Regional Park this year and will be taking place over the course of August 5th-6th. The location isn’t the only thing being updated; organizers will soon be delivering an update to the HARD Summer app. This is the 10th Anniversary of HARD, and they’re bringing back some HARD veterans for this year’s event. Not only are some of the biggest names in EDM playing, but huge Hip-Hop artists are hitting the stage as well. A small handful of these artists are Bassnectar, Justice, Kayzo, Migos, Rae Sremmurd, and Skepta! Like past years, there’s going to be five stages to host everyone: Green, Pink, Purple, Harder, and HARD.

Although tickets have already shipped, they’re still available for purchase through LiveNation! If you want a taste of the music before you attend, you can listen below through mixtapes artists have for the event. With an all new venue and world-class artists, KZSC is excited to see what surprises Destructo holds in store for the event.

The festival begins during the second week in June in the venues and nightclubs of Las Vegas and concludes at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
