Today marked the opening day, of what might go down as the best rap lineup in the history of music festivals, Rolling Loud 2017. With not only a big upgrade in its lineup, the Miami rap festival also kicked things off in its new location, Bayfront Park, which also hosts the mega-EDM festival, Ultra.
With over 2/3 of the lineup left to go, today alone, fans saw memorable performances from rap superstars like Lil Wayne and A$AP Rocky, as well as great sets from Lil Yachty, Curren$y, Rich Chigga, Mac Miller, Flatbush Zombies, Kembe X, Larry June and more!
Check out our photos below, of what Day 1 of Rolling Loud had to offer in 2017. We hope to see everyone at Bayfront Park tomorrow, when gates open at noon!
Forget Coachella! When it comes to rap and hip-hop, Rolling Loud has the best lineup of all summer music festivals, and it isn’t even close. With headlining performances from Kendrick Lamar, Future and Lil Wayne, supporting performances from Run The Jewels and Migos, and sets from emerging names in rap like XXXTentacion, Rolling Loud is stacked from top to bottom.
And if you aren’t yet familiar, Rolling Loud will take place next month at Miami’s Bayfront Park from May 5th through the 7th. The festival is all ages and rain or shine, and no matter what the conditions Rolling Loud is the place to be next month.
So while anyone can enjoy Rolling Loud, whether stone cold sober or a rolling loud stoner, we are celebrating 4/20 with music, by sharing our 10 Most Anticipated Performers for Rolling Loud!
Earlier today, Rose Presents and Rhymesayers Entertainment have announced the lineup for the big 10th Anniversary of the Soundset Festival. Headlining the Minnesota festival this year will be GOOD Music’s Travis Scott and Minnesota’s own, Travis Scott. Ms. Lauryn Hill is also scheduled to make a very special performance for Soundset.

Milwaukee’s historic venue, The Rave, experienced another packed and memorable performance from Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller tonight, as he brought The Divine Feminine Tour to the familiar venue. With opening sets from ClockworldDJ and Soulection, Miller always brings great company when he comes to Wisconsin. His past opening artists have included Chance The Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt and Vince Staples (just to name a few), so don’t be surprised if one of Mac’s openers headlines their own Milwaukee concert in the future.
After the opening performances set the tone for the night, it was time for Mac Miller to greet his Milwaukee fans. Miller started off his set with his Ty Dolla $ign collaboration ‘Cinderella’, off Miller’s fourth studio album, The Divine Feminine, which released just last month. One of the more mellow tracks from his performance tonight, Miller performed a variety of records throughout the show, mellow and hype, new and old; including a number of songs from his new LP, as well as records from his entire discography of albums and mixtapes.
Highlights of the night were anything but few and far between, as the Wisconsin crowd matched Miller’s energy until he stepped off stage after his encore performances. However Miller’s energetic performance of ‘Loud’, a track which Miller used to open his last headlining tour, was a personal favorite. If Mac Miller ever slows down, which is unlikely given that he continues to hold onto his core fan base while gradually picking up new audiences every year, he will always have a second home in Milwaukee, as they will always show up for a great Mac Miller show.

If you couldn’t get wristbands in time for Lollapalooza’s huge 25th Anniversary or if you just want to extend your Lollapalooza plans, don’t worry because the premiere Chicago music festival has announced over 50 aftershows/parties featuring 110+ artists. With some awesome intimate performances from some of the lineup’s best artists, including Jane’s Addiction, Major Lazer Soundsystem (Diplo, Walshy Fire and Jillionaire), X Ambassadors, The 1975, Mac Miller, Halsey, Vince Staples and many more, you can catch some memorable performances at some of Chicago’s best and most historic venues.
2015 isn’t quite yet over for Mac Miller, as the rapper gave fans a post-Christmas treat today by releasing a brand new track on his Soundcloud. The new record, titled ‘Vienna’, is a smoothing track from Miller and a great way for the GO:OD AM artist to close our the year. If this is a sample of what Mac’s 2016 will sound like, then we definitely are looking forward to it!
2015 saw a lot of great concert tours, from J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive Tour with Big Sean, YG and Jeremih to Taylor Swift’s huge 1989 World Tour. Some tours sold out stadiums and arenas, selling out the entire tour before it even begun, and some tours were in small intimate venues, either strategically or because simple supply and demand. Some had stacked lineups top to bottom and some introduced us to a lot of great new artists. Festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Coachella were bigger than ever this year, but that didn’t stop your favorite artists from building up some great shows of their own.

Last night, rapper Mac Miller brought his GO:OD AM Tour to Emo’s in Austin, TX. Joined by his GO:OD AM tourmate Tory Lanez, Mac killed it! We sent our photographer Mason Power to watch Miller perform a number of his hits, including his hit single and college favorite, ‘Donald Trump’, as well as number of tracks from his new LP, GO:OD AM, of which his 2015 tour get its name. Miller has a stage presence like none other, and with every new tour of his, he brings something new to his performances.

This past weekend we caught Mac Miller’s awesome performance at Chicago’s Freaky Deaky. And now today we have new music from the GO:OD AM rapper, this time with Chicago singer, Njomza. Produced under Mac’s Larry Fisherman alias, the new record is titled “Creatures of the Night’, it features Delusional Thomas, and it’s fire! This is an awesome collab and definitely the right way to kick off your Tuesday.
Today marked the last day of Chicago’s Freaky Deaky in 2015. Continuing the Halloween party into November, everyone again arrived in their best Halloween outfits and prepared themselves for some bass.

Fans today saw sets from Vic Mensa, Mac Miller, Goldlink, A-Trak, AlunaGeorge and many more, and we were there to capture the best moments.
