HARD Events announced some of the artists who will perform at the 2015 goHARD Spring Festival. The artist lineup includes Amtrac, Big Gigantic, A$AP Ferg, Bro Safari, Rae Sremmurd, Dillon Francis, Eric Prydz, DJ Snake, RL Grime, and Flosstradamus. The festival will be held in Miami, Dallas, Seattle, New Orleans, and Toronto. “We’ll probably do six to eight markets that we’ve never really done on a big scale and start building there. There’s so many places in the world we can develop more electronic-wise. It’s just identifying which ones are the right ones,” HARD Events CEO Gary Richards said in an interview. More artists and cities will be announced at a later date, but tickets for the festival will go on sale today at 10am (Eastern standard time). Fans can visit the goHARD website to purchase tickets, and receive more information regarding this year’s festival.

The festival will take place on June 17th through the 21st, and it will also feature performances by Action Bronson, The New Pornographers, Ty Dolla $ign, Best Coast, Angel Olsen, Blonde Redhead, Real Estate, and more.
