Dope Entertainment, masterminds behind the Rolling Loud music festival just announced their lineup for the 2017 iteration of the festival and holy s*** is it good.
Lil Wayne (!), Future (!!), A$AP Rocky (!!!) and Kendrick Lamar (!!!!) will act as the festivals headliners, with a slew of raps best and brightest all slated for a lineup. Travis Scott (dude got snubbed for a grammy), Young Thug (genius), and Migos will all provide some trap flavor while artists ranging from Lil Yachty to Denzel Curry, Mac Miller to Lil Uzi Vert, Tyler the Creator to 21 Savage will all be throwing up some crazy shows. They even freaking have Kembe X (criminally slept on). If you remotely like any hip hop at all this show is for you.
The festival, usually held at Soho Studios in downtown Miami will now move to Bayfront Park on Biscayne Bay and will be held May 5-7. Despite only being two years old, the festival has already seen a slew of big-name acts such as Schoolboy Q, Juicy J and A$AP Ferg bless the stage.
The headliners are all making moves lately, with Kendrick Lamar putting in solid work with The Weeknd and Thundercat, while Lil Wayne is promising Tha Carter V will see the light of day this year and Future is making moves in 2017 with the rumor of something big coming.
You can check out the full lineup below and if you are even remotely near Miami (read: in North America) do not miss this festival…and invite me (please).
