HARD Summer is officially back at the Fontana Speedway this year, after bringing it to the Glen Helen Park last year. The festival has already shown that it is taking fan feedback into heavy consideration for 2018, moving the festival further infield to the grass and overall making it smaller – one of the main complaints of 2016 was that the stages were too spread apart.
Now, HARD has begun teasing the lineup in an exceptionally “HARD”-esque fashion with a glitchy video and a “leaked” email contact form from an intern. Contacts include “collegedropout420,” “littlefut,” “ifitsyellow,” “hulkhoganfanclub,” and “pyritepapi.” The email is also post-dated April 24, leading us to believe that’s when either these artists or a phase 1 lineup will be revealed.
Fans have already come up with pretty solid guesses for the artists in the teaser (from top to bottom): Flosstradamus, Diplo, Valentino Khan, Yellow Claw, Mija, Snails, A-Trak, and Kill The Noise. All of these artists are HARDfam and have played at multiple HARD events in the past, making them no surprise as return performers.
Check out the teaser below and let us know if you think another artist fits these clues better.
