Rolling Loud’s 2017 lineup is a hip-hop fan’s dream come true

Rolling Loud is an annual hip-hop festival taking place in Miami, Florida from May 5th – 7th. This year’s lineup is especially impressive as it boasts the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Future, Lil Wayne, ASAP Rocky, Tyler the Creator, Travis Scott, Action Bronson, Flatbush Zombies, and Mick Jenkins.

Also playing are Young Thug, Mac Miller, Kevin Gates, Migos, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi Vert, Joey Bada$$, Curren$y, Denzel Curry, Chief Keef, The Underachievers, Nebu Kiniza, Jazz Cartier, Rob $tone, and Playboi Carti.


Rolling Loud 2017 Lineup Is a Hypebeast's Dream: Kendrick Lamar, Future, Lil Wayne, and Others

It’s 8:18 p.m. and I’m on Instagram minding my own business (stalking someone I met at Sidebar), and then I'm tagged with yet another flyer. I don't give a fuck, I think. But then I determine it's Dope Entertainment’s annual hip-hop music festival, Rolling Loud.

And the lineup is stacked. Hundreds of comments begin pouring under the post. They're from hypebeasts with their parents' money, gold-diggers with an agenda, and photographers who “just have to be there.” And then there’s me, a fan of Jazz Cartier, who appeared last year like Christ himself.

When it comes to underground hip-hop shows in Miami, I already know what to expect: an extensive lineup of people I don’t know, someone blowing cheap marijuana in my face, and about 13 people rocking a collapsing stage. Thankfully, since the first Rolling Loud in 2015, it has been better than that. We can look forward to one hell of a lineup at its new Bayfront Park location May 5 through 7.

Known for throwing hip-hop shows anywhere from Orlando to Tampa to Miami, the founders of Dope Entertainment — Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif — plan to give Miami more than just your average shitty rap show. “Bayfront is a venue we'll be able to grow within for years to come,” Cherif said in a recent interview. In the past, the duo has been criticized for the fest's lack of structure, pay-for-play tactics, poor sound quality, and flooding. But this year, attendees can expect even bigger production and a smoother ticketing process than last year’s festival.

The lineup includes hip-hop favorites Kendrick Lamar, Future, A$AP Rocky, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, and Travis Scott, along with local acts Robb Bank$, Denzel Curry, IndigoChildRick, and Kodak Black, if he doesn’t go back to jail for a pending charge.

The festival will span two stages and three days, topping last year’s two days. There's more ground to cover and a larger production space at Bayfront Park than there was during the last edition at Mana Wynwood.
