Rolling Loud music festival to expand across America, Asia, UK

The hip-hop celebration will make five more stops this year and next.

Earlier this year, REVOLT.tv partnered with Rolling Loud to exclusively stream the three-day, Miami-based music festival. A hip-hop head's dream, the thirty-plus hours of performances included sets from Kendrick Lamar, Future, Migos, Travis Scott, Gucci Mane, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, and others.

Now, after selling out three consecutive years in the Floridian city, the festival is expanding globally.

According to its co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler, Rolling Loud will make its way to both Southern California and the state's Bay Area later this year, before heading out to the U.K., China, and Japan in 2018.

Cherif said, "Rolling Loud is the #1 hip-hop festival in the world....It's time to take the Rolling Loud experience on the road. Rap music is the most popular and fastest growing genre of music, and the world deserves to experience curated lineups of its champions."

Zingler added, "Each show will feature a different assortment of hip-hop's biggest superstars as well as underground heavyweights. Miami will remain as our home and premier event as we establish the Rolling Loud brand around the world."

No word yet on which artists will fill the line-ups, but if it's anything like years prior, fans worldwide are in for a good show.
