Undoubtedly, this following phrase has been uttered by music fans across the globe: “Man, I’d sure love to go to (Insert Festival Name), but I have to work/be out of town/can’t travel that far/have to see my baby mamma.” Well, the days of Lollapalooza’s cross country travels may be over, but festival-goers can get a taste of this year’s HARD Summer Music Festival by checking out the HARD Summer Tour.
Featuring Digitialism, Caspa, Destructo, and Jack Beats, the electronic music outing will tour North America throughout the month of August. Kicking off August 3rd in Seattle, WA, the tour will then play a few shows in the Pacific Northwest before heading to LA for the actual HARD Fest. From there, beginning on August 9th in Dallas, TX, the show continues onward with stops in Toronto and Montreal, Baltimore, MD, and Philadelphia, PA before wrapping up on August 20th in NYC. Jack Beats fans should take note that the duo are only set to be a part of the tour until August 14th in Montreal, QC.

The actual HARD Summer Music Festival takes place on August 6th at Los Angeles’ Historic State Park.
