“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
“Rolling Loud continues to prove its hip-hop tastemaking status is no fluke” – Pollstar
During the first night of the latest “Loud Stream,” Rolling Loud once again proved that they have their fingers on the pulse of rap culture. Offering a Valentine’s Day theme, the first night of “Loud Stream” brought a performance from “Buss It” hitmaker Erica Banks, a chat-pleasing effort from YouTuber-turned-rapper DDG, an energetic closing set from headliner Lil Skies, plus memorable first impressions from TikTok favorite YN Jay, and First Lady of Griselda Armani Caesar, who invited labelmate Benny The Butcher–who performed his set from a luxurious, upholstered chair–to the stage. Below, check out photos of these artists and more, taken by Rolling Loud’s ace digital media team.
Tonight, the festivities continue with headliner Fetty Wap, creator of the immortal Valentine’s Day anthem “Trap Queen,” as well as performances from Jacksonville crooner YK Osiris, teen heartthrob Luh Kel, “Th**t Baby” rising star BRS Kash, and a heavy contingent of woman rappers, anchored by viral sensation Yung Baby Tate and rising rapper Mariah The Scientist. Tune in tonight @ 6pm ET/3pm PT to watch the action exclusively on Rolling Loud’s Twitch channel.
Coinciding with tonight’s “Loud Stream which airs tonight exclusively on Twitch, Rolling Loud announced a new limited line of merch, including collabs with headliners Lil Skies & Fetty Wap. The Lil Skies collab includes a hoodie and two color options for t-shirts, each emblazoned with his signature butterfly, and the Fetty Wap drop includes a hoodie and a t-shirt featuring a portrait of the artist.

Placing at #4 on the Pollstar Year-end chart, their first livestream boasted headlining performances from Swae Lee and Ski Mask The Slump God, and generated over 4.4 million views from over 3 million unique viewers. Offering an elaborate Halloween theme, the second livestream featured headliners Trippie Redd and Gunna and landed at #8 on the year-end chart.
