Cole, Travis Scott, Future, Migos, Post Malone, Lil Uzi Vert and dozens more. In September, Rolling Loud hosted Rolling Loud Bay Area 2018, which drew 40,000 fans to Oakland Coliseum over two days to see artists like Scott, Wiz KhalifaRae Sremmurd, and more. Rolling Loud is currently putting the finishing touches on Rolling Loud Los Angeles, occurring on December 14th and 15th at the Banc of California Stadium Grounds in Downtown L.A.

Zingler and Cherif said: “After back to back sell-outs in Miami and Rolling Loud-branded festivals and experiences across the US, we’re thrilled to make our Australian debut. Rap music is the most popular and fastest growing genre of music and the world deserves to experience curated line-ups of its biggest stars and hottest new talent”.

The Background: 

Rolling Loud Festival is one of rap’s premier music festival experiences. The festival was the brainchild of co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matthew Zingler, who began organizing shows in 2010. The two created Rolling Loud Festival in 2015 as a one-day festival for 6,000 attendees. Three years later, the festival’s Miami chapter has expanded into a three-day event, with the festival expanding worldwide in the coming year.
