Rolling Loud Festival Announces Plans of Expansion in North America, China and U.K.
The Rolling Loud Festival is getting even louder. After garnering massive success in Miami, the premier hip-hop festival will expand its reach globally, according to its co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler.
“Rolling Loud is the #1 hip-hop festival in the world. After selling out three consecutive years in a row in Miami, it’s time to take the Rolling Loud experience on the road,” Cherif says in a press release. “Rap music is the most popular and fastest growing genre of music, and the world deserves to experience curated lineups of its champions.”
Rolling Loud will be making its way to the Bay Area and Southern California this October and December, respectively. In 2018, they'll take their talents internationally and will host branded events in China, Japan and the U.K. Of course, the highly touted festival will return back to its home-base of Miami after completing its journey around the world.
“Each show will feature a different assortment of hip-hop’s biggest superstars as well as underground heavyweights,” said Zingler. “Miami will remain as our home and premier event as we establish the Rolling Loud brand around the world.”
This year, Rolling Loud ousted the competition with high-octane performances by Kendrick Lamar, Future, Lil Wayne, Travis Scott and more.
