Experts at the pandemic pivot, Rolling Loud found a way to bring fans the thrill of live music without needing to leave their living rooms. This weekend, Rolling Loud hosted its second “Loud Stream” virtual festival on Twitch, offering fans an exciting and safe way to spend Halloween at home. Headlined by Gunna and Trippie Redd, who performed songs from his brand new Pegasus album, “Loud Stream” offered 12 hours of live interviews, Halloween scares, and performances spread over two days. There was even a surprise Zoom appearance from Nardwuar The Human Serviette, who interviewed Rolling Loud co-founders Matt Zingler & Tariq Cherif and impressed them with his deep knowledge. With additional performances from Young Dolph, The Kid Laroi, Young Nudy, and many more, the second “Loud Stream” raised the bar for interactivity, production value, and presentation for livestream concerts.
Hosted by Druski, DJ Scheme, and JenesisGiselle, and with DJ sets from DJ Five Venoms, “Loud Stream” was Rolling Loud’s first-ever themed event. The festival stage was adorned with cobwebs, tombstones, and other spooky decorations, and the festival hosts and performers showed off their costumes. The stream also got fans involved with the #RLHalloween costume contest, encouraging fans to post their Halloween drip on social media and offering prizes to the best-dressed.
Rolling Loud’s partnership with Twitch also includes daily live hip hop-driven programming, with special guests and original live shows like The Rotation, The Leak, and Loud Gaming. Read about Rolling Loud’s full slate of Twitch programming HERE.
