MIAMI (CBSMiami) - South Florida's annual and massive hip-hop music festival Rolling Loud is back this weekend and packed with three days of stellar lineups, including A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott, and Post Malone. In addition, there are reports that Kanye West will perform on Sunday.
Crews are out at Hard Rock Stadium on Thursday, setting up stages, merchandise stands and simply preparing for the three-day festival that takes place July 23rd - 25th.
The music fest was postponed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic so this marks the first Rolling Loud in the festival's hometown of Miami since 2019.
Organizers said they planned to keep as much of the Miami 2020 lineup intact as possible for this year. So in addition to the headliners, the music fest also features Megan Thee Stallion, Rick Ross, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Young Thug, DaBaby, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, and "special guest" Bobby Shmurda, just to name a few.
For the 2021 event, Rolling Loud will honor all passes for fans who held onto their Miami 2020 tickets and will grant refunds to ticket-holders to those who don't want to go. There are a limited number of tickets for sale for the 2021 festival.
You can buy them at Rolling Loud's website where you can also check for COVID protocols.
Rolling Loud started out as a one-day festival in Miami in 2015. Since then it has evolved, with massive festivals in Miami, Los Angeles, New York, and the Bay Area. It has also staged international events in Europe and Australia.
