As HARD Summer approaches this weekend in Southern California, we’ve dived into the lineup and picked the top five artists you should check out under the Fontana sun. From innovative bass to house, HARD has all your music needs covered this weekend so without further ado, here’s our top five.

Sacha Robotti 

This Dirtybird player had an unbelievable set at Desert Hearts this year and looks to bring the heat to HARD. With two sets this weekend, be prepared to step into the Sloth’s world and find out the meaning of Sloth Acid.

San Holo

The bitbird label boss has been in a world of his own since stepping onto the scene a few years back. He has pushed the boundaries of his productions and live performances ever since.

Virtual Self

Porter Robinson’s new project has received a warm welcome thus far and continues to change the game no matter what his persona.


This guy tore it up at Mixmag in LA a month ago as well as EDC back in May and I can’t wait to see what he brings to the table this weekend. The London product brings in a Latin feel and is one of the game’s most promising rising talents.


Consisting of Dirtybird’s Walker & Royce and Ardalan, these three artists will be cutting the decks with their unique styles and originals plus a slew of tracks I’m sure you’ve never heard before.
