HARD Summer 2018 was better than ever. This year Insomniac has produced the best HARD to date. In true HARD fashion fans were treated to rap stars to EDM's best. Everything was new and refreshing. Fans traveled from everywhere across the nation to experience this legendary event.

This year, although the weather was in the high 90's, fans were taken care of. They were greeted with shade structures, cooling fans, and "Shady Lane" which included 5,000 feet of misting lines.  Insomniac always keeps headliners in mind and really put thought into every single detail of the event.

The VIP experience was amazing and completely worth it. The lines to get in were super short, there was so much space to dance, the VIP dedicated bar line was a breeze to get into and the pool was simply amazing in the hot California sun. Dancing in the pool with the best beats flowing from the HARD stage was simply unforgettable.

The lineup this year featured rare back-to-back sets such as Buygore, Yellow Mustard, Kill The Snails and my absolute favorite set of the festival Zeds Dead B2B Jauz. Fans were going crazy with these new and refreshing sets. There were five great stages this HARD that pleased all fans from house heads to dubstep lovers. Every where you turned there would be an amazing beat to follow you around.

The vibes at HARD were truly amazing, from gorgeous outfits, amazing squads and of course the PLUR attitude made HARD an event to remember. Weekend attendance for the festival was a total of 165,000.
