The Hard Events empire has taken another step toward EDM dominance with the announcement of a new multi-act tour called GoHard. The five-date event, to take place in the spring, will feature DJ-producers and rappers including Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, A$AP Ferg, Porter Robinson, Tokimonsta, Rae Sremmurd and Eric Prydz.
GoHard will commence at the Tacoma Dome in Seattle on April 25 and move to New Orleans on May 2, Miami (May 16), Dallas (May 29) and conclude in Toronto on May 30. Each roster will vary. If you want to see A$AP Ferg, you'll have to travel to Dallas. Dillon Francis fans will need to book rooms in Miami. Destructo fans are in luck: he's at all the stops. Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 27, at the GoHard website.
The event joins an array of happenings that Hard Events, a subsidiary of Live Nation, produces every year. In addition to its flagship Hard Summer (to occur somewhere in the Los Angeles area on Aug. 1-2) party, the company books a cruise party called Holy Ship, Colorado outdoor event Hard Red Rocks, the annual Halloween throwdown called Hard Day of the Dead and others.
The full roster of acts to appear during GoHard are: Amtrac, Anna Lunoe, A$AP Ferg, Big Gigantic, Bro Safari, Cosella, Destructo, Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, Eric Prydz, Ethan Kath of Crystal Castles, Flosstradamus, Griz, GTA, Jauz, Matt Zo, Porter Robinson, Rae Sremmurd, RL Grime, Snakehips, Tchami, TOKiMONSTA, Wax Motif, What So Not and Zeds Dead.
