While some of us have settled into the chill autumn season, it’s still summer somewhere — and this past weekend the summer party season was alive and well in Northern California. Touring hip-hop festival Rolling Loud made its way through the Bay Area last weekend setting up shop at Oakland’s Coliseum Grounds for a two-night lineup headlined by Future, G-Eazy, Migos, and Lil Uzi Vert. Rolling Loud is quickly becoming one of Hip Hop’s biggest music festivals and last weekend’s lineup — in addition to the massive headliners — was packed with some of our favorite artists from this year like Megan Thee Stallion, Juice WRLD, and 21 Savage.
If you’re feeling a heavy case of FOMO after peeping that lineup, don’t. Rolling Loud is still, for lack of a better word, rolling, heading to Queens for the festival’s New York debut next week with Travis Scott, the Wu-Tang Clan, A$AP Rocky, and Lil Uzi Vert in tow and then swinging back around the country to Los Angeles in December with Chance, Future (again), YG, Playboi Carti, Rocky and Lil Baby. Looks like if you love hip hop you’re going to need to catch a flight real soon.
In addition to great lineups, Rolling Loud features all of the modern festival amenities you’d hope to have like stocked merch tables, cereal bars, food trucks, and of course barbershops and beauty bars to make sure you’re looking your best festival-ready-self at every moment. We’re truly living in the best time for music festivals.
We’ve collected all the best photos of the sights from the ground floor, so take a look to help you decide if Rolling Loud is about to earn a spot on your yearly festival itinerary.
