A sold-out crowd of over 40,000 took over Bayfront Park in Miami for the 2017 Rolling Loud Festival that featured a lineup full of hip-hop’s brightest stars. Although Rolling Loud is still in its infancy (the inaugural event took place in 2015), this star-studded festival brought together one of the best collections of talent in rap. The heavy-hitting bill covered two stages of electrifying energy that kept the crowd wild into the night.
The festival, presented by Dope Entertainment, put the spotlight on headliners A$AP Rocky, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Future, Travis Scott, and Kendrick Lamar, arguably today’s most celebrated rapper. The supporting artist lineup left no slack with performances by Mac Miller, Lil Yachty, Action Bronson, XXXTentacion, Run the Jewels, and more. One of the highlights of the festival was Kendrick Lamar’s cinematic performance at the end of Day 2 that took adoring fans onto a captivating musical journey with hyped performances of his recent chart-topping hits. Lamar’s celebrity is no surprise to anyone, and his presence at Rolling Loud along with many of hip-hop’s reigning champs will set the bar for festivals all over the country.Mountain Productions provided a Hercules Grid Stage System that stood at Rolling Loud as the Postmates Stage, hosting the festival’s biggest performers such as Curren$y, A$AP Rocky, Gucci Mane, Future, and Kendrick Lamar. The Postmates Stage provided a main performance area of 60’ x 40’ and large wing bays to support line arrays and video screens to keep the beats pumping loudly throughout Bayfront Park. In addition to the Hercules Grid system, our crew built the front of house and two scaffold spot towers. Our equipment has seen a diverse range of musical genres and performers, but the Rolling Loud bill proved to be one of the most energetic events we’ve been a part of!
