This July, the East Coast's foremost hardcore festival This Is Hardcore returns to the Electric Factory in Philadelphia for 4 days of all out HC madness. Having attended the festival in 2016, Last.fm can attest that This is Hardcore is a must for any hardcore fan, and we couldn't be happier to be heading back again in 2017.
Now in its twelfth year, you can always trust founder Joe Hardcore and his team to consistently curate a lineup that brings together the most exciting acts across the hardcore spectrum - from straight-up NYHC, to crossover, to metalcore, and everything else in between. This year is no different, with a killer mix of old school HC titans like Madball, H2O and Shelter, through to fresh names on the scene like Malice At the Palace, Miracle Drug, Year of the Knife, and many many more. Check out our Spotify playlist below featuring our top picks from this year's lineup.
