“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
“Rolling Loud is the be-all of hip-hop festivals.” – Billboard
“The Rolling Loud New York experiment was a success—one which will likely earn it a return trip to the city in future years. Far from a traditional NYC rap experience, it was a two-day event that catered to the genre’s youngest fans, with an eye squarely focused on the future.” – Complex
“In only its fifth year with four major destinations and more in the pipeline overseas, athletes, celebrities and others are forking over as much as $20,000 for VIP packages. Of course, imitators are cropping up.” – Pollstar
The biggest festival brand in Hip-Hop, Rolling Loud brings together rap fans of all generations. Just ahead of Rolling Loud New York, the festival’s first-ever foray to the genre’s birthplace, Rolling Loud announces a new merch collaboration with Wu-Tang Clan, one of the fest’s headliners. Available exclusively at a pop-up shop in Manhattan’s Lower East Side on October 11th, the new capsule collection will include hoodies, hats, t-shirts, socks, and more in multiple co-branded designs. The most unique item in the collection is a hooded windbreaker. With a throwback. block-letter design that recalls the street fashion of 1993, when Wu-Tang burst onto the scene, the windbreaker boasts a hood lined with 3M reflector tape–in photos taken with flash, the tape will obscure the wearer’s face in a way that evokes the iconic cover of the Clan’s debut album Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers.

Each purchaser of Wu-Tang x Rolling Loud merch also automatically enters a ticket-giveaway contest for the festival this weekend.

Rolling Loud Festival is one of rap’s premier music festival experiences. The festival was the brainchild of co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matthew Zingler, who started organizing shows together in 2010. The two created Rolling Loud Festival in 2015 as a one-day festival for 6,000 attendees. Four years later, the festival’s Miami chapter has expanded into a three-day event, with additional installations in Los Angeles, Oakland, and New York. In January 2019, Rolling Loud hosted its first international event in Sydney, Australia, selling out in 38 minutes.
