The Announcement:

Attracting dozens of hip-hop’s biggest names for a nonstop weekend of great music, Rolling Loud is the biggest festival brand in hip-hop. As the flagship festival in Miami quickly approaches, Rolling Loud is proud to announce their partnership with REVOLT who will exclusively livestream the festival from both the REVOLT (https://revolt.tv/rollingloud) and Rolling Loud websites, and their social platforms, @RevoltTV. Headlined by J. Cole, Travis Scott, and Future and recently the subject of a feature in the Wall Street Journal, Rolling Loud 2018 is the biggest edition of the festival yet and a culmination of four years’ worth of successful events.

REVOLT will premiere a special Rolling Loud documentary on Saturday, May 5th at 10pm ET re-airing Thursday, May 10th at 9pm ET ahead of the Miami festival. In the documentary, REVOLT travels with the founders of the new premier hip hop festival to revisit their roots. The hip hop experience showcased the likes of Kendrick Lamar, SchoolBoy Q, Curren$y and more, and the founders reflect on their ascension from booking Rick Ross on college show dates to booking 52 + acts in front of sold out audiences at major theaters.

Taking place at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on May 11-13, Rolling Loud 2018 will feature heavy-hitters like Cardi B and Lil Uzi Vert, veterans like N*E*R*D, The Diplomats and Juicy J, established names such as Young Thug, Big K.R.I.T., Young Dolph and Rick Ross, and risers like Playboi Carti, Lil Skies, Ski Mask The Slump God, Trippie Redd and many more. Tune in to REVOLT to make sure you don’t miss a second of the action.

Drawing a massive crowd to Bayfront Park in Miami, Rolling Loud 2017 not only provided value to the city’s music fans, but also generated $75 million for the local Miami economy, per a report from The Washington Economics Group. According to the WEG, Rolling Loud Miami created 815 jobs in the Miami area, contributed $30 million worth of household income to the citizens of Miami-Dade County and added $46 million worth of value to the area’s GDP. Rolling Loud Miami contributed $31.7 million to the knowledge-based industries and $27.4 million to the visitor and tourism industries, as well as making smaller, but still significant impacts on trade and transportation, construction, retail and government sectors. These numbers quantify how youthful enthusiasm for music, and particularly hip-hop via Rolling Loud, can directly and indirectly improve the economic health of a neighborhood.

After three successful years in Miami, Rolling Loud began the first stage of its global expansion in 2017, hosting the with the sold-out Rolling Loud Bay Area in October at the Shoreline Festival Grounds in Mountain View, California. The festival was a massive success, buoyed by the impressive lineup, headlined by Lil Wayne, Travis Scott and Schoolboy Q, as well as the strong word of mouth generated by the three Miami festivals. Rolling Loud’s global expansion continued with the equally successful Rolling Loud SoCal in December, headlined by Future, Schoolboy Q, Migos, Gucci Mane and Lil Uzi Vert. Rolling Loud continues its momentum into 2018 with its flagship Miami festival, sure to be the biggest edition yet.
