A quick guide to some of the must-see performances at Rolling Loud 2017

Looking at the not-so-obvious sets that you need to witness this weekend.

Back in January (despite being forgotten about), rap fans were awestricken when the star-studded lineup for the Rolling Loud hip-hop festival was announced. Now, here we are just hours away from the three-day extravaganza set to take place at Bayfront Park. With Kendrick Lamar, Future, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Lil Wayne and A$AP Rocky as headliners, it was inevitable that tickets would sell out quickly. But with a jam-packed lineup that features the aforementioned, as well as others — from Mac Miller to Lil Yachty, Run the Jewels, Lil Uzi Vert, Migos and more — you're sure to experience scheduling conflicts due to the more than 60 acts set to perform. But don't fret, because here we list a couple of the not-so-obvious performers you don't want to miss.

Robb Bank$

When: Sunday, May 7 @ 2:35 p.m. EST

Where: Postmates Stage

Returning to Rolling Loud this year is Broward County native Robb Bank$, who is sure to deliver a helluva performance. Fresh off the release of C2: Death of My Teenage, the "TumblrGod" is sure to turn this weekend into his very own homecoming. The "2phoneshawty" rapper, who possesses the ability to bring together the anime enthusiasts, backpackers and drug dealers in one room... er crowd, has built a heavy grassroots these past couple of years. As one of the notable acts who has been a part of the Rolling Loud experience since its inception, Bank$ will undoubtedly keep it all the way live.

Flatbush Zombies

When: Friday, May 5 @ 7:30 p.m. EST

Where: Monster Energy Stage

If you've never been to a Flatbush Zombies show, this weekend is the best time to catch them. Not only are the trio - comprised of Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Erick Arc Elliott - no strangers to concerts (they tour for a large part of the year), they're also walking definitions of the phrase: Turnt AF.

XXXTENTACION

When: Saturday, May 6 @ 7:00 p.m. EST

Where: Postmates Stage

The man who took the rap scene by storm with a little song called "Look At Me" is set to make a big splash on the Postmates Stage. As one of the most talked about rap upstarts this year, XXXTentacion will leave quite the mark this weekend. Not only is his pal Ski Mask the Slump God also on the bill, but this performance will mark his first big set since being released from jail in March. Last month, the 19-year-old burgeoning rapper dropped four songs, including "Bowser" with Ski Mask.

Denzel Curry

When: Saturday, May 6 @ 5:30 p.m. EST

Where: Postmates Stage

Fresh off Coachella, the self-professed Black Metal Terrorist, or better yet Mr. steal your show spotlight, is almost guaranteed to pull off one of the hypest performances on Saturday. If for any reason there's skepticism, stand back and watch the crowd as Curry dives into roaring anthems like "Ultimate" and "Gook."

Playboi Carti

When: Sunday, May 7 @ 5:15 p.m. EST

Where: Monster Energy Stage

In case you've been living under a rock, buzzing rap sensation Playboi Carti has one of the most-talked debut projects of the year. The self-titled release dropped last month has already amassed critical acclaim and the ears of seekers hoping to hop on the buzz train. All that said, expect this weekend to turn into Carti's album release celebration. Oh and as a heads up, when "Magnolia" blares through the speakers, don't expect a Tory Lanez appearance.

Robb Bank$, Flatbush Zombies, XXXTentacion, Denzel Curry, and Playboi Carti will be among the many performing at Miami’s Rolling Loud music festival May 5-7 which REVOLT TV will be exclusively live streaming here. Follow at #RollingLoud3 on Twitter.
