Hard Summer Festival Reviews

Check other festival goers’ opinions of the Hard Summer Festival in this section.

“HARD Summer was the closest thing to it and was of an even larger scale. Insomniac puts on many festivals throughout the year but it definitely chose the right one to debut at the new venue complex. The sheer number of people made HARD Summer feel close to the level of EDC, which is Insomniac’s flagship event.”

Claims Jessica Fail for EDM Train.

“tl;dr the production is cool, the sound is decent, the venue is cool, the crowds are shit, and be prepared to leave all your valuables at home or you’ll get robbed blind by organized thieves both inside and outside the venue”

Sherrif Acey on Reddit.

But not everyone is a fan:

“But yeah, EDCLV in every way is better. This felt like EDC-lite but in the day (ew). This place was hot and dusty, and if you weren’t wearing a mask you might as well get asthma because it the place is full of dust that will get you dirty fast.”
