Gary Richards, aka Destructo, has never had an easy time finding the perfect home for his HARD Summer festival. In 10 years, it's moved seven times, including its latest decision not to spend a second year at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.

Instead, HARD Summer 2017 will make a new home at the Glen Helen Amphitheater & Regional Park, about 12 miles away from The Speedway. All other details for the two-day event -- taking place Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 5 and 6 -- remain the same. All existing ticket sales will be honored, including all general admission, VIP and camping passes. Ticketmaster is expected to ship said tickets out this week.

Tickets are still on sale for the big anniversary bash. Check the full lineup, including headlining performances from DJ Snake, Justice, Snoop Dogg, Rae Sremmurd and a preview of the venue space at Glen Helen below.
