Rolling Loud is back. After entertaining fans throughout the pandemic with high-quality livestreams and weekly programming, the festival returns in 2021 with the announcement of Rolling Loud Miami 2021, its first live event since 2019.
Held once again at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL, Rolling Loud Miami returns on May 7th-9th.
Headlined by Travis Scott, Post Malone, and A$AP Rocky, the upcoming event promises a massive, star-studded lineup, keeping as much of the 2020 lineup intact as possible while adding performances from budding stars. Postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rolling Loud’s 2020 Miami Festival was set to be the biggest event in brand history, with over 255k in expected attendance over the festival’s three scheduled days. For the 2021 edition, Rolling Loud will honor all passes for fans who held onto their 2020 tickets. Limited tickets for the 2021 festival will be available for sale starting Friday 11/20.
“We’re really excited to get back to producing Rolling Loud around the world, starting with our flagship Miami show in May,” says Rolling Loud co-founder Tariq Cherif. “This year has been tough for us all, but I believe that when we are able to finally come together again in 2021, our collective spirits will be high once again.”
Rolling Loud keeps up its cultural impact during the pandemic with its exclusive Twitch partnership, which gives fans the Rolling Loud experience with virtual festivals and weekly programming. On Halloween weekend, Rolling Loud hosted its second “Loud Stream” virtual festival, distinguished by its Halloween theme, once again topping Pollstar’s Livestream Chart.
Headlined by Gunna and Trippie Redd, who performed songs from his brand new Pegasus album, “Loud Stream” offered 12 hours of live interviews, Halloween scares, and performances spread over two days. There was even a surprise Zoom appearance from Nardwuar The Human Serviette, who interviewed Rolling Loud co-founders Matt Zingler & Tariq Cherif and impressed them with his deep knowledge. With additional performances from Young Dolph, The Kid Laroi, Young Nudy, and many more, the second “Loud Stream” raised the bar for interactivity, production value, and presentation for livestream concerts.
The “Loud Stream” virtual events are part of Rolling Loud’s wide-ranging partnership with Twitch, which includes daily live hip hop-driven programming, offering special guests and original live shows like The Rotation, The Leak, and Loud Gaming. Recent guests on Rolling Loud’s Twitch programming include Machine Gun Kelly, iann dior, Jaden Smith, Cordae, Cole Bennett, The Kid Laroi, and many others.
In addition to Miami 2021, Rolling Loud also plans to turn up for Rolling Loud Portugal, its first European festival. A supersized 5-day festival with headliners like Travis Scott, Cardi B, Stormzy, and more, Rolling Loud Portugal is scheduled for July 6th-10th, 2021 on the beach in Portimão, Portugal.
