The other day we were having a little daydream about who we'd love to be billed on the new Australian leg of Rolling Loud, one of the world's biggest hip hop festivals. We had the likes of Kanye and Janelle Monae in our sights and while our hopes were dashed there, the Rolling Loud Festival bill is here and it ain't bad at all.
Future, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, Tyga, Smokepurpp and Aussie hip hop maestro Manu Crook$ are who will be gracing the Sydney festival in 2019, and yes, promoters have promised that we're just looking at the first artist announcement.
Hopefully the next announcement will feature a wider range of homegrown hip hop/rap connoisseurs as well more female/gender-diverse acts.
The festival will arrive on January 27th (Hottest 100 weekend!) in 2019 and we're pretty amped to see how Rolling Loud's very first Aussie event will go down!
