It is no secret that Rolling Loud is one of the biggest traveling events in entertainment today. Over the years, the festival has made its way through New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Portimão, Toronto and beyond. Now, the traveling event is seeking to take its celebration of music to a place it has never been before. Just days before the festival is set to take over Citi Field in New York, Rolling Loud Co-Founders Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif have announced that they are planning their first festival in Thailand.
Rolling Loud is set to make its way to the continent of Asia for the first time in April 2023. The official lineup is still being kept under wraps, but Cherif and Zingler say it will feature some of the “biggest names in hip-hop, alongside some of the most exciting Asian and Thai artists.”
“We’re proud and honored to have Thailand host our first festival in Asia. Rolling Loud has been looking to expand to Asia for a while, and we’re confident that Thailand is the perfect setting. Our local partners are pulling out all the stops to make Thailand one of our most exciting events on any continent,” Cherif and Zingler said.
“We can’t wait to bring the amazing energy of Rolling Loud to the people of Thailand, and as always, showcase the best of the local rap scene.”
Adding to the announcement, the festival hosted a kick-off press conference and ceremonial concert with Thai stars like Thaitanium, Young Ohm, 1mill and FIIXD along with American artists like Memphis Bleek. More details will be revealed as this one-of-a-kind festival unfolds.
