Last year’s Summer Smash was easily one of the best festivals of the year. With performances from A$AP Rocky, Lil Baby, Chance The Rapper, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Durk and many more, the Chicago festival, curated by Lyrical Lemonade’s Cole Bennett, was a can’t miss.
Building off their momentum from last year’s epic festival, this summer’s fest is just as impressive and organizers have just shared the official daily lineup with some brand new additions. Kicking things off on Friday, June 17th will be Wiz Khalifa, Trippie Redd, Lil Skies, Rico Nasty and headliner Lil Uzi Vert who will look to top his 2021 performance.
Saturday’s lineup is just as great, as Post Malone will deliver his first performance following the June 3rd release of his latest LP, “Twelve Carat Toothache”. Hitting the stage before Posty will be Polo G, Ski Mask The Slump God, Bia and G Herbo to name a few.
Last but not least, on Sunday, Playboi Carti will headline alongside the festivals undercard like Oliver Tree, Lil Yachty, 2 Chainz and more.

In addition to boasting itself as the World’s Largest Music Festival, Milwaukee’s Summerfest consistently has one of the most diverse lineups in music today.
That diversity was on display today as the lakeside festival kicked off its 2018 schedule with a great selection of artists across all different genres. This was evident with our day one itinerary, as we caught performances from rapper Lil Uzi Vert, EDM star Alesso, country music’s Walker Hayes and more!

New year, new location, new lineup, but the one thing that didn’t change is the amazing experience that Rolling Loud provides to fans in Miami. Now held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, the world’s premiere rap music festival kicked off it’s amazing 2018 lineup today.
With highly anticipated performances from J. Cole, Lil Uzi Vert, N.E.R.D, Young Thug, Tory Lanez, The Diplomats, Russ and many more, fans had a ton of artists to choose from on Friday. Where else can you see Lil Uzi Vert try to top his viral 2017 performance and hear cuts from J. Cole’s brand new album, KOD?
Travis Scott and Kanye West have delivered! Taking a break from the controversy that Kanye West has found himself in this week, La Flame shared their new collaboration with Lil Uzi Vert, which the two teased on Twitter, just a few days ago.
Titled ‘Watch’, the new track is definitely something you’ll bump in the car this summer. For Kanye’s anticipated verse, he raps about his opioid addiction, Larry David, the Sunken Place and more. From the content, it seems like the track was recently recorded, but either way, we love what we hear.
Listen to ‘Watch’ ft. Kanye West & Lil Uzi Vert below.
We shouldn’t really need to spell out reasons of why you need to attend Rolling Loud this year, the stacked lineup practically sells itself, but we’re going to anyways.
Not only is the rap music festival in Miami arguably the best music festival of the year (for a second straight year), but fans will have opportunities to hear a bunch of exclusive performances for the first time. From La Flame to Postey and more, you can expect a number of artists to make some live debuts at Rolling Loud.
Check out our list of our five reasons you can’t miss Rolling Loud 2018 below.
It’s the best festival lineup of the year
Let’s be real, for the second straight year, Rolling Loud’s Miami festival has the best lineup of all music festivals. Perhaps even the greatest rap festival lineup of all-time, this year’s lineup boasts performances from Future, J. Cole, Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, N.E.R.D., Lil Uzi Vert, Young Thug, Post Malone, Russ and many more. From Friday to Sunday, start to finish, Rolling Loud has the best rappers in the game right now!
Party like a rockstar to Beerbongs & Bentleys
Post Malone is celebrating the release of his brand new album, Beerbongs and Bentleys, and fans will get a chance to hear Post perform the album’s tracks live at Rolling Loud this year. Don’t be surprised if Post Malone makes a number of live performance debuts from the new LP in Miami next month.
New music from Travis Scott?
Travis Scott possibly had the best set at Rolling Loud last year, and you should expect him to deliver the same energy for his performance this year. Anything can happen at the night show, even the debut of new music. Travis Scott told fans on Twitter today that this week is the week that fans eat, which likely means new music. Scott and Kanye West hinted at the release of a brand new collaboration with Lil Uzi Vert, so perhaps La Flame and Uzi will perform the track at Rolling Loud. Wishful thinking!
The undercard is ridiculously good
It’s not just the headliners that make Rolling Loud 2018 so great! A simply review of the festival poster will show you how deep the lineup really is this year. You shouldn’t only be excited for J. Cole and Travis Scott, you also need to get excited for Smino, Jaden Smith, Juvenile, Bas, Lil Xan, Wifisfuneral and J.I.D. to name a few.
Be one of the first to hear KOD live
J. Cole just released his new record breaking album, KOD, and it’s an instant fan favorite. Cole’s loyal fan base will definitely come in waves for Rolling Loud 2018, and Rolling Loud will be Cole’s first U.S. performance since releasing the album. Therefore it will be your first chance to hear the new LP live and in person. Needless to say, you’ll want to be at Rolling Loud in person as J. Cole shuts thing down on Friday night.
