“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
Rolling Loud’s “Loud Stream” events bring the mosh pit to your living room, successfully translating larger-than-life festivals to the small screen. Drawing 3.8 million combined views from more than 1 million unique viewers per night, with 46k concurrent viewers at its peak, this week’s Valentine’s Day-themed “Loud Stream” was another massive success for rap’s premier festival brand.
The second night of “Loud Stream” offered a bounty of memorable moments, anchored by Fetty Wap’s stream-closing performance of the immortal love song “Trap Queen.” Packing in six hours of non-stop performances, interviews, and commentary, the Twitch-exclusive virtual festival continued last night with a performance from viral sensation Yung Baby Tate, who covered Aaliyah’s “I Care For You” and performed her hit “I Am,” a hit-filled set from Drake collaborator Yung Bleu, romantic sets from R&B heartthrobs YK Osiris and Luh Kel, a performance of Billboard Top 25 hit “Th**t Baby” by BRS Kash, plus standout shows from Rolling Loud first-timers like Mariah The Scientist, IV Jay, and more.
This “Loud Stream” was Rolling Loud’s third virtual festival since entering into an agreement with Twitch last fall. In addition to baosting the star-studded lineups for which Rolling Loud is known, the Rolling Loud team includes engaging commentary from festival co-founders Tariq Cherif & Matt Zingler, plus “Stream” co-hosts DJ Scheme, JenesisGiselle & DJ Five Venoms. The “Loud Stream” festivals are the crown jewels of Rolling Loud’s Twitch channel, which also includes weekly programs like The Rotation, Loud Gaming, The Leak, Got Barz, and more.
