Rolling Loud was founded as a one-day festival in 2015 by Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif, and quickly evolved into a global behemoth hosting annual festivals in Miami, Los Angeles, New York, The Bay Area and now Europe.
"In four and a half years — beginning small in Miami, and now promoting Coachella-sized events around the country — Rolling Loud has established itself as a playground for the young...This time last year, many of the rappers now drawing crowds of several thousand were barely known." - The New York Times
"Rolling Loud is the be-all of hip-hop festivals." - Billboard
"The Rolling Loud New York experiment was a success—one which will likely earn it a return trip to the city in future years. Far from a traditional NYC rap experience, it was a two-day event that catered to the genre's youngest fans, with an eye squarely focused on the future." - Complex
"Rolling Loud continues to prove its hip-hop tastemaking status is no fluke" - Pollstar
