As a result of vaccinations being distributed across the world, popular music festivals like Rolling Loud 2021 have successfully relaunched after the tough last year of the pandemic. Although Rolling Loud 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19, you’ll finally have a chance to attend again this year. With updated CDC guidelines and a mask mandate allowing curators to open their gates again, hip-hop lovers will be thrilled to hear that Rolling Loud 2021 is officially back.

Since the very first Rolling Loud in Miami in 2015, this music festival has been a major player in hip-hop and rap culture around the United States thanks to co-founders Matt Zingler and Tariq Cheriff. Well-known artists including (but not limited to) Schoolboy Q, Action Bronson, Travis Scott and other local talent helped establish what the festival has evolved into today.

Because Rolling Loud in Miami drew so much attention from big time promoters and record labels, the traction it gained among followers and the mainstream music industry grew exponentially. Soon festival goers would see Rolling Loud expand their single-day hip-hop festival and take on the West Coast with an even more massive event, introducing Rolling Loud California to residents in the Bay Area and adding another two days in Los Angeles.

This was the spark of what is now one of the biggest hip-hop events in the world. Whether you’re trying to physically attend or perhaps join the millions of people streaming the festival online, experiencing Rolling Loud 2021 is something you can check off your bucket list this year. If you’re not sure about the price tag, there is a Rolling Loud payment plan available to help you spread out the cost.
