Jack U, The Weeknd to headline Hard Summer Festival

Posted on

Dance music and hip-hop’s biggest names are heading to Southern California on Aug. 1-2 for the 8th annual Hard Summer Festival. The Weeknd and Jack Ü take biggest billings, respectively headlining the Friday night and Saturday night lineups. Chromeo, The Chemical Brothers, Dillon Francis, Ratatat, RL Grime, Brodinski and more are among the artists who will perform during the fest.

The festival, which is moving to a new location in 2015, taking over Fairplex in Pomona, California, announced its roster with a hilarious trailer starring the genre’s most comedic export, Dillon Francis. The six-minute clip opens with Francis deciding he wants to play a “real” instrument (he’s taken up spoons, which results in plenty of obvious spooning jokes) because Hard is a “festival” and not a “rave.” Unfortunately, Chromeo—whose rehearsal the “Get Low” DJ is crashing—isn’t into the spooning and Francis must strike out on his own. The cameo-heavy path to Francis’s spooning supergroup Spoon Ü with Porter Robinson is streaming below.
