With Lollapalooza still a couple months away, Chicago has a slew of A-list concerts to kick off the summer until one of the world’s best music festivals returns. With shows from Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, Diana Ross and many more, Windy City music fans will have plenty of opportunities to see some amazing live music this June.
Check out our list of the 10 can’t miss concerts in Chicago next month!
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.
With weekend one of Coachella in the rear view window, it’s time to get excited for Miami’s Rolling Loud. With the best festival lineup in the country last year, expectations for Rolling Loud 2018 were very high (no pun intended). Lucky for music fans in Florida and rap fans around the world, Rolling Loud delivered with an epic 2018 lineup that looks to be even better than 2017.
With anticipated performances from J. Cole, Cardi B, Young Thug, Post Malone, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Migos, Russ, N.E.R.D and many more, you can’t go wrong with whatever performances you catch over the weekend.
If you’ve been living under a rock, Rolling Loud will take place from May 11-13 at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. Fans can visit the festival’s official website for more information!

Last night Post Malone brought The Hollywood Dreams and Monster Energy Outbreak Tour to Chicago’s Concord Music Hall. Traveling with rappers Jazz Cartier and Larry June, the huge tour comes with some of the best emerging names in rap today.
Up first for the night was Bay Area rapper, Larry June. Performing a number of records from his new Cookin Soul collaborative mixtape, Orange Season, June is still introducing himself to many, but he certainly set the mood for the night and picked up some new fans in Chicago with his opening set. Next up was Toronto native, and one of the best emerging rappers today, Jazz Cartier. With one of the more slept on mixtapes of the past year, with Hotel Paranoia, Cartier is not one to ignore. Last night’s performance included cuts from the new tape, his 2015 project Marauding in Paradise, and more, Cartier had an energy filled set that fans won’t soon forget. If you want to read more on Cartier, check out our 2015 interview with Cartier here.
Moments later, it was time for Post Malone to greet the Chicago crowd for his headlining performance. Opening his set with his track ‘White Iverson’, a record which quickly made Post a household name in rap music, the crowd instantly went wild, singing every word to the addictive track. Malone then followed with his fan favorite song, ‘Too Young’, a track dedicated to rappers and artists everywhere who leave the world far too soon. And while fans are still awaiting Post Malone’s forthcoming debut album, Stoney, Post Malone’s set included performances from his 2016 mixtape, August 26th, his new single and Justin Bieber collaboration, ‘Deja Vu’, and more.
Stoney is expected to release sometime this year, and of the most exciting tracks on the LP will be Post’s collab with Pharrell, which we witnessed the birth of months ago at Bonnaroo. While we were awaiting Post’s Tennessee performance this past summer, fans in attendance included Odd Future’s The Internet, Miguel and none other than Skateboard P himself. Pharrell and Post instantly linked up on-site, which then led to a collaboration, which fans will hear soon.
Post Malone’s breakout record ‘White Iverson’ released only a year ago, and since its release we have seen Post perform four times, and each time he improves on his stage presence. Post has had a swagger and confidence from the beginning, but with more experience and more songs under his belt, his live shows benefit as a result. If you get the opportunity, definitely do yourself a favor and catch a Post Malone performance.
Check out our photos from yesterday’s show below and make sure get your tickets to a tour stop near you at PostMalone.com.
After supporting Fetty Wap on the most recent Monster Energy Outbreak Tour, rapper Post Malone will now be headlining the tour’s new run and he is bringing some talented artists with him. Kicking off next month, on September 14th in San Diego, Post Malone, Jazz Cartier and Larry June will be hitting a number of stops throughout North America until the tour concludes November 9th in Los Angeles.
Post killed it in support of Fetty Wap last time around (peep our photos here), so you can definitely expect the same and even more now that the ‘White Iverson’ rapper/singer has since released his debut mixtape, August 26th. Tickets for the forthcoming tour go on sale for the general public on Friday, August 12th at noon (local time), so be sure to get your tickets at PostMalone.com, because they will definitely sell out fast.
Check out the tour dates for the upcoming Monster Energy Outbreak Tour below.
This month we wrapped up our second straight year at Bonnaroo, teaming up with our friends at Pigeons And Planes to cover The Farm’s 15th Anniversary. And while we already shared some of our favorite moments live from the premiere Tennessee festival, we wanted to share more photos of some of our favorite performances this year. With memorable sets from Pearl Jam, LCD Soundsystem, Dead & Company, Ellie Goulding, J. Cole, Haim, Anderson East, Post Malone and St. Lucia, just to name a few, this was certainly a Bonnaroo to remember.
Check out our sixth Bonnaroo Photo Series of 2016, of Post Malone’s Saturday performance.
Last weekend we caught the Madison, WI date of Fetty Wap and Post Malone’s Monster Energy Outbreak Tour.

A couple days ago we posted our photos from the concert, and today we have some video footage to help you relive the night!
Check out our video recap from Fetty Wap and Post Malone’s Madison stop on the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour below.
