5 Best Acts to See at HARD Summer 2015

HARD Summer. Don't mind if I do. There's something so addictive about electronic dance music & how the beat seems to pulse within you. Catch the music festival on August 1 + 2, 2015 at the Fairplex in Pomona, CA. I know I will. This will be my third year at HARD Summer, so yeah I'm a fan. This year's lineup is pretty stacked. Check out these 5 best acts you must see at HARD Summer 2015.

1. Die Antwoord - YES! Catch Die Antwoord if at all humanly possible. This South African rap-rave group contains Ninja, Yolandi Vi$$er, & DJ Hi-Tek. Their music is fiery, pumped up, & absolutely unique. They have attitude & aren't afraid to stay true to themselves. Just check out some  of their interviews. Die Antwoord's music videos are visually exhilarating. See for yourself.


2. Caribou - I caught a bit of Caribou at Coachella & wish I'd stayed for the entire set. Caribou is spearheaded by Daniel Victor "Dan" Snaith, a Canadian artist. He normally plays live performances with a band. The electronic group's current sound has a psychedelic dance vibe. Glad to view their name on the HARD Summer lineup this year.


3. The Chemical Brothers - If you want to witness a living legend, try The Chemical Brothers on for size. The British duo of Tom Rowlands & Ed Simons has been making sweet sweet music since 1992. Their freshest album, Born in the Echoes, shall be released July 17, 2015 -- their first album since 2011. 


4. Rae Sremmurd - This American hip hop duo is relatively new in the music world; they were signed in early 2014. You've probably heard their singles "No Type" & "No Flex Zone." Both ranked pretty high on the Billboard Top 100 -- numbers 16 & 36, respectively. Their current banger "Throw Sum Mo" features Nicki Minaj & Young Thug.


5. The Weeknd - Since you've already paid for a ticket, maximize its value by heading to The Weeknd. He's a crooner & works that huge stage all by himself. I guarantee tickets to his shows will only increase in value. Hear him at HARD instead. He still manages his own Facebook & Instagram accounts which I can appreciate.


Are you heading to HARD Summer this year? Who is your see act to catch at HARD Summer 2015? Which of these 5 artists sounds the most up your alley? :]
