Despite some rocky happenings at HARD Summer, including the fatalities of three ticket holders and reports of gross negligence on the part of the organizers, the 2016 edition to the major festival has been regarded as one of the more notable stateside dance music events of the year. Now, HARD Summer is once again grabbing our attention with the release of the official recap video for its latest shindig.
Set to a raucous soundtrack of Boys Noize’s “Overthrow” and Destructo’s “Catching Plays” with Wax Motif, the HARD Summer 2016 recap video is an indulgent memento to the two days of music and wild antics that went down at the Auto Club Speedway in Souther California earlier in the summer.
All the usual aftermovie fare is sprinkled throughout the clip, with plenty of footage of the truly massive crowds, impressive light displays and notable DJs like Slushii, Anna Lunoe, Skrillex, Ghastly and more.
Clocking in just shy of the five minute mark, the new HARD Summer recap video perfectly captures the festival’s best moments into a slickly edited presentation that will have you geared up for next year’s edition.
