Rolling Loud Australia, the Aussie version of the “world’s biggest hip-hop festival”, announced that it’ll be making its debut in early 2019 and now we have the acts making up the first lineup announcement.
Heading the bill will be hip-hop heavyweight Future, whose last appearance in Australia was back in February for Sydney City Limits.
Joining him will be Lil Uzi Vert, whose track ‘XO TOUR Llif3’ came in at #74 on 2017’s triple j Hottest 100.
Also rounding out the festival’s first lineup announcement are Playboi Carti, Smokepurpp and Tyga, as well as hometown hero Manu Crook$.
The founders of the festival, Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler, gave a joint statement on how pumped they are that it is making its Australian debut.
“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 lineups of its biggest stars and hottest new talent.
Rolling Loud Australia will take place at Sydney’s Olympic Park on January 27th. You sign up for exclusive pre-sale access via the festival’s official Australian website.
