ORIGINAL STORY: Get HYPED hip hop fans, because the biggest hip hop festival in the world — Rolling Loud — is officially coming to Australian shores in 2019.
Promising a lineup stacked with “the hottest hip hop acts today”, the Miami-born event will make its Aussie (and Southern Hemisphere) debut this summer, on Saturday, 27th January at Sydney’s Olympic Park.
Founded by young trailblazers Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif in 2015, Rolling Loud has hosted performances from some of hip hop’s finest, including Kendrick Lamar, Future, Cardi B, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, Young Thug, Post Malone and Migos, and the first-ever Aussie headliners are set to be announced later this week.
In a statement, 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 lineups of its biggest stars and hottest new talent.”
