Introducing Rolling Loud, one of the biggest rap festivals in America, which is taking over the Sydney Showgrounds in Olympic Park this summer for a massive one-dayer on 27 January.

The first artists will be announced later this week but previous events have featured a who’s who of modern rap, including Kendrick Lamar, Future, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, Young Thug, Migos, Future, Lil Uzi Vert, and many more.

For a hint at how massive this could be, check out footage below from the three-stage festival in Miami, featuring J.Cole, Migos, Travis Scott, Young Thug, and more.

 

 

Launched in 2015 by co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler, Rolling Loud has since expanded to Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and even Japan.

“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,” say the co-founders in a statement.

“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.”

Staging the Sydney event will be local production and events company, HSU Events, who have a history with large-scale hard style and EDM events, such as Knockout and HTID
