Rolling Loud was one of the many spring music festivals postponed this year. Learning it’d be rescheduled for February 2021 curbed some of the disappointment but it didn’t make us any more patient. For those of you who can’t wait that long either, some good news: Rolling Loud is going virtual.
The annual hip-hop festival partnered with Twitch to bring a live-streaming version to fans called Loud Stream. One of three virtual Rolling Loud festivals in the works, the online event is scheduled for September 12 and 13 and promises a star-studded lineup and the same production value you’d expect IRL, plus a glimpse into the backstage experience. Rolling Loud worked with Twitch to create weekly programming featuring well-known artists and emerging talent, among other lifestyle-centric topics. “Expect Rolling Loud to do in the live stream world just as we have done in the festival space,” said Matt Zingler, cofounder of Rolling Loud.
Some of the shows slated for Twitch’s Rolling Loud channel include The Founders, a podcast with cofounders Zingler and Tariq Cherif. Fans will also get to preview new tracks before they’re released on The Leak, while Live From The Studio will showcase the music-making process. In addition to the five scheduled titles, the festival explores new territories with cooking shows and fashion presentations led by hip-hop artists.
