It’s been 15 years since the debut edition of HARD Summer back in 2008, and it has since called multiple venues home, from LA State Historic Park to more recently the NOS Events Center.
Now for its 2023 edition, HARD Summer will be making its official return to the city of Los Angeles after 10 years.
As a part of the iconic LA Coliseum’s centennial anniversary celebration, the multi genre festival will create a unique experience for attendees at brand new never-before-used venue combination with various stages spread out across the campuses of the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Exposition Park, and BMO Stadium (Banc of California).
Set to take place on August 5-6, 2023 the lineup for the festival is yet to be announced. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 3, at 10am PT and will be available with only a $2.13 deposit symbolic of their return to the 213 area code in Los Angeles.

Explaining how the multiple venues will be utilized, the breakdown by genre and stage will allow fans a ‘fully immersive footprint of many genres and styles to explore.’ For lovers of dance music’s biggest mainstage acts will be the HARD Stage at the Green Lot on the south side of BMO Stadium, while followers of more esoteric strains of house and techno can see their favorite global icons on the Pink Stage at Christmas Tree Lane Park. Multi-genre curation will triumph on the HARDER Stage on the South Lawn, where mind-blowing headlining performances from the industry’s foremost titans have become commonplace. Bass music devotées can ride the rail at the festival’s Green Stage inside the LA Memorial Coliseum, while a spotlight will continue to be shined on live acts and new subgenres du jour at the Purple Stage inside BMO stadium.
Joe Furin, General Manager of the Coliseum shared his excitement saying, “We are thrilled to host HARD Summer’s return to Los Angeles as part of our centennial anniversary celebration. As home to the most iconic events in the world, this festival is an exciting addition to our 100-year history.”
