After 3 days of nonstop performances by the biggest names and hottest risers in rap, the first-ever Rolling Loud Toronto is in the books. The festival proved once again why it’s rap’s biggest stage, gathering the culture for an unpredictable and spectacular event that shows what hip-hop is all about. Toronto 2022 ended on a high note, thanks to an unprecedented performance from Wizkid, Rolling Loud’s first Afrobeats headlining act, who had the crowd moving to megahits like “Ojuelegba,” “Essence,” and many more.

Canada was definitely in the building Sunday night with Toronto favorites NAV, Killy, and Pengz wooing the crowd. Toronto OG DJ Charlie B brought out a bunch of artist for his set, which included the “Munch” songstress Ice Spice. Rolling Loud regulars like $uicideboy$ and Ski Mask The Slumpgod had the crowd in full effect, while rising artists like $NOT, AJ Tracey, and Dess Dior turned up their respective sets.

Critical Praise:

“Rolling Loud has become the biggest hip-hop festival in the country” – Variety

“From niche hip-hop festival to must-play event for some of the biggest stars in music.” – Pollstar

“Until Elon Musk involuntarily envelops society into a physical cloud universe, Rolling Loud will be the closest experience to actually living inside your streaming app.” – Complex

“Rolling Loud’s annual New York edition is always something special, but this year’s Halloween-weekend extravaganza (not to mention the first post-pandemic) brought seriously spectacular energy to Queens’ Citi Field.” – Highsnobiety

“Rolling Loud is a lifestyle brand. They are more than just the shows. They have built a community with their consumers and are building new channels to maintain continuity” – Forbes

“In four and a half years — beginning small in Miami, and now promoting Coachella-sized events around the country — Rolling Loud has established itself as a playground for the young…This time last year, many of the rappers now drawing crowds of several thousand were barely known.” – The New York Times

The Background:

Founded by 5-time Billboard Hip-Hop Power Players Matt Zingler & Tariq Cherif as a one-day Miami show, Rolling Loud has grown into a global festival phenomenon, putting on shows on both coasts and in multiple countries. Rolling Loud is the premier festival brand in hip-hop, known for its expert curation of wide-ranging lineups that reflect the state of the genre.

The festival returned from a 18-month hiatus with the sold out Rolling Loud Miami 2021, bringing in over 85,000 fans per day to Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL. With headliners like Post Malone and A$AP Rocky, Rolling Loud Miami 2021 was a triumphant return for live rap music, and a coming out party for risers and new superstars eager to play in front of a festival crowd. Rolling Loud hosts its biggest event to date with Miami 2022 in July, headlined by Kid Cudi, Kendrick Lamar, and Future, before returning to NY and debuting in Toronto in September 2022.
