Since HARD Events‘ inception in 2007 and the first HARD Summer Music Festival taking off in 2008, the brand has grown to exponential heights, launching a number of festival properties across North America and events abroad over the last decade.
In 2012, HARD premiered their Day Of The Dead Halloween festival, which replaced the previous HARD Haunted Mansion. The inaugural DOTD featured Justice, Knife Party, Major Lazer, Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, Tommy Trash, Jack Beats and more. In 2015, after a number of logistic obstacles and hurdles, Day Of The Dead changed its age policy to 21+ to cater to an older crowd. That was the last Day Of The Dead festival presented by HARD Events.
Now, HARD’s social media is presenting “Dia de los Muertos,” translated from “Day of the Dead” in Spanish, in a collage of six posts containing cut-outs of festival days past. Dancing Astronaut reached out to HARD’s team for confirmation on DOTD‘s relaunch. Insomniac’s long-running southern California Halloween events have managed to remain intact, and now with HARD likely relaunching their Halloween-themed throwdown, it seems fans will have some tough decisions to face come fall.
