Rolling Loud Miami 2021: Saturday Recap
Live Hip-Hop’s Triumphant Return Continued Last Night With Performances From Travis Scott, Roddy Ricch, Lil Durk, & Many More
The rage continued on Day 2 of Rolling Loud Miami 2021. From Travis Scott‘s powerhouse performance that included an hour plus of “RAGE SWEAT AND TEARS,” a preview of new music to a crowd eager to sing along with the same tenacity as they did his hits like “Highest in the Room,” a tender moment and shoutout to his daughter Stormi, and bringing out surprise guests Migos, Rolling Loud was the perfect home for Scott’s standout performance at a festival with vibes like no other.
The theme of the Day 2 was community, as many rappers brought their friends and collaborators out to join them on stage under the Miami sun. Here are a few of the many memorable link ups — Lil Durk gave a tribute to the late King Von with his fellow OTF brothers and lit up the stage with Lil Baby and Coi Leray, SoFaygo welcomed Travis Scott to the CIROC Stage, Don Toliver invited special guest Kali Uchis out, and it was a Michigan affair at Babyface Ray‘s performance as he brought of Detroit’s Icewear Vezzo.
Stay tuned for an action-packed Day 3 with headliner Post Malone and performers Lil Uzi Vert, Megan Thee Stallion, Gucci Mane, $UICIDEBOY$, and more.

SCENES FROM THE FESTIVAL:
#4 on Pollstar’s List of 2020’s Top Livestreamers
“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

Founded by Matt Zingler & Tariq Cherif as a one-day Miami show in 2015, 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.
