Hip-hop fans are going to go full sicko mode as the world’s biggest hip-hop festival Rolling Loud is coming to Hong Kong for the very first time!
Taking place at the West Kowloon Art Park on October 19–20, the debut edition of Rolling Loud Hong Kong will satisfy all rap lovers with two full days of non-stop hip-hop music from a star-studded lineup. Artists that have headlined at past festivals in the states include huge names like Migos, Cardi B, Travis Scott, A$AP Rocky and Future—just a few big names that we hope we’ll see at Hong Kong’s edition!
Festival-goers can also expect state-of-the-art audiovisual production and lighting to really get those bodies moving through the night—we’re talking big bass-boosted speakers and pyrotechnics over two, or maybe even three, stages.
Ticket sales are sure to go fast, with a record-breaking 20,000 tickets sold in 38 minutes for the Sydney, Australia debut. The fullline-up will be announced soon, so start planning your #fitpic poses, memorise your favourite verses, and keep an eye on this page for more updates. In the meantime, check out this Hong Kong announcement video to get a better idea of what you’re in for!
