So who are gonna be the headliners? Day of the Dead got deadmau5 and Calvin so they are probably gonna have huge headliners. Or do you think they'll just bump up Zedd and Dillon Francis to headliner status for this event?
Also what bands will be playing? I'm thinking maybe Chromeo and Little Dragon? They've played HARD Summers in the past.
With Outside Lands there are a lot of crossover possibilities.
I bet Jack U will be there for sure. SBTRKT hopefully with a live set. Disclosure would be great and they played last year.
Boys Noize always plays HARD events.
Chromeo now is a definite at this point and maybe Cut Copy (even though they were at Day of the Dead)
Tiesto could be one of the headliners now with being in SF the following weekend.
Also maybe Major Lazer/Diplo for the other headliner since he will already be there for Jack U.
I really hope they get Breakbot again since he only comes to the US to do HARD Summer.
I completely agree. They put on a great show at Sound back in December. But with the number of times I have seen them, its kinda Live Under the Covers, or bust, for me. OR Soulwax
Fair enough. I've seen them Under The Covers twice at HARD, once as Soulwax (again at HARD), and one 3.5 hour DJ set in SF this December. They're one of the few bands/groups I have to see whenever they come to town.

Not to be a jerk, but I found his new album "Torus" to be pretty awful on the whole. I have to think a live show would be heavy on that material.
I bet SBTRKT is there, his set got cut 30 minutes short last year b/c he was running late from the airport.
Sub Focus live (if it's live) will be fun, totally agree with the above poster, his new album is pretty garbage. Glad Kalkbrenner was in town last December when he was playing, gave me a good excuse to go elsewhere. I'd personally like to see Boys Noize (if he's going to play; seems like he always does, not complaining) do a B2B set, preferably with someone like Erol Alkan. Hell they should do a B2B stage, I think that would be a nice change-up.
Friday: Radiohead / King Gizz / Bonobo / Father John Misty / Sampha / Loco Dice / Big Gigantic / Crystal Castles / Jagwar Ma Saturday: Moderat / Avalanches / Tycho / Floating Points / Schoolboy Q / Warpaint / Royskopp / Breakbot / Local Natives / Car Seat Headrest / Thundercat / Ben UFO / Swet Shop Boys / Mitski / TDCC / Roisin Murphy Sunday: Kendrick Lamar / Hans Zimmer / New Order / Kaytranada / Maya Jane Coles / Devendra Banhart / Tale of Us / Whitney / Preoccupations
Tiesto aside, Sunday has some pretty good acts (and a couple great ones). Disclosure, 2manyDJs, Nero, Rudimental, and Chase & Status aren't too shabby. Saturday on the other hand, I have to look pretty far down the bill to find an act I'd be excited to see (Tiga vs. Audion).
We know that 2ManyDJs is a DJ set, not a live Under The Covers show. Any word on the other acts like Nero, Disclosure, Sub Focus and Chase & Status?
