Founded by young trailblazers Tariq Cherif & Matt Zingler in 2015, Rolling Loud has gained a reputation as a festival on the cutting edge of breaking hip hop.In just four years, the duo have transformed a humble gathering into what Billboard described as “the having worked closely with artists from their infancy and strengthening those relationships as they have transformed into bonafide superstars.

Some of the biggest names in hip hop have graced the stage including Kendrick Lamar, Future, Cardi B, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, Young Thug, Post Malone and Migos. This year’s event drew its biggest crowd to date, with 135,000 venturing to Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium to see J. Cole, Travis Scott , Future, Migos, Post Malone, Lil Uzi Vert and dozens more.

Since its 2015 inception in Miami, Rolling Loud has expanded to Los Angeles and San Francisco. The Sydney event will be the first time it has taken place in the Southern Hemisphere.

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 line-ups of its biggest stars and hottest new talent”.

Juñor of AUD’$ said: “Rolling Loud’s work in growing new Hip Hop culture is world leading. Each city they’ve thrown a festival in, they’ve curated the local line-up heavily and their investment into the local culture is game changing. To combine that with what’s happening in Australia right now feels like something very very special is on the cusp. Expecting to see the same genuine care & love for the grassroots culture out here. It’s a new generation globally and Rolling Loud get that.”
