Rolling Loud 2018

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - MUSIC -

Af­ter a con­tentious 2017 event at Bayfront Park, the Rolling Loud mu­sic fes­ti­val comes to Hard Rock Sta­dium in Mi­ami Gar­dens May 11-13 bear­ing a mas­sive bill of hip-hop roy­alty, topped by Travis Scott, Rick Ross, Fu­ture, Wiz Khal­ifa, Lil Wayne, Mi­gos and Post Malone. Last year’s sold-out Rolling Loud seemed to be shrouded in con­tro­versy even be­fore it de­buted in down­town Mi­ami, no­tably from the head­liner, Pom­pano Beach’s Ko­dak Black. Black’s le­gal prob­lems pre­vented him from at­tend­ing Rolling Loud, while re­ports of de­hy­drated fes­ti­val­go­ers, rowdy crowds and last-minute sched­ule changes for Mi­gos, Robb Banks and oth­ers also marred the fes­ti­val. The sta­dium move lets or­ga­niz­ers of the all-ages Rolling Loud, now in its third year, to spread the acts over three stages in­stead of Bayfront Park’s one. Other high-pro­file per­form­ers on the 100-plus bill in­clude J. Cole, who’s tour­ing be­hind his Bill­board No. 1 al­bum “KOD.” The North Carolina-born rap­per on Tues­day also an­nounced a 34-date tour sup­port­ing the al­bum, kick­ing off Aug. 9 at Mi­ami’s Amer­i­canAir­lines Arena with opener Young Thug. Tick­ets cost $45.50-$145.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Satur­day via Live­Na­, Tick­et­mas­ and, with a series of pre­sales start­ing to­day. Also on the bill is rap­per Tory Lanez, a Pem­broke Pines res­i­dent. When: Doors at 3 p.m. from Fri­day to Sun­day Where: Hard Rock Sta­dium, 347 Don Shula Drive, Mi­ami Gar­dens Cost: $299-$329 plus fees for three-day ad­mis­sion, $799 plus fees for 18-and-old VIP ex­pe­ri­ence Con­tact: 305-240-4573 or
