Last month, Rolling Loud Festival announced a major expansion for its third year, expanding from a single annual event in Miami, Florida into a global series of hip-hop festivals. Today, Rolling Loud announces the headliners and full lineup for Rolling Loud’s Bay Area edition, occurring on October 21st and 22nd at the Shoreline Festival Grounds in Mountain View, California. Tickets for the boutique installment will go on sale Tuesday, August 22, but fans who sign up for the Rolling Loud mailing list at RollingLoud.com will receive a pre-sale code on Monday.
Heading the bill is Houston-born rapper and riotous live performer Travis Scott, with the legendary Lil Wayne and TDE capo ScHoolboy Q serving as co-headliners. The festival boasts a long and diverse list of popping emcees, from youthful superstars like Lil Uzi Vert, and Kodak Black,, to underground kings like Isaiah Rashad, Curren$y, and Denzel Curry, to 2017 XXL Freshmen like XXXTentacion, Ugly God, PNB Rock, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and Playboi Carti and Bay Area stalwarts Nef the Pharaoh, Rexx Life Raj, Philthy Rich, and Marty Grimes. The Bay Area installment of Rolling Loud is the first in a series of six Rolling Loud-branded festivals and experiences held around the globe, including a stop in Southern California in December. In 2018, the festival will travel to China, Japan, and the United Kingdom with offshoot festivals and events (dates yet to be announced,) and will culminate in the fourth annual Rolling Loud Festival in Miami in May 2018.
Featuring performances from some of the biggest names in rap, such as Lil Wayne, Future, Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and A$AP Rocky, along with a varied list of rising stars and underground sensation, Rolling Loud had its biggest year yet in 2017. Founded by Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler, the carefully curated Rolling Loud Festival is the largest festival in the world dedicated purely to Hip-Hop, with over 120,000 fans packing the grounds over the course of three days at the Miami festival.
Speaking about the expansion, Cherif said: “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. Rap music is the most popular and fastest growing genre of music, and the world deserves to experience curated lineups of its champions.”
“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.”
