Another Rolling Loud is done and dusted, and it was a hot one! With temperatures peaking in the mid-90s, the weather was almost as fire as the music. Featuring a variety of stellar acts from legendary rappers and fresh rising stars, Rolling Loud 2023 gave us three days of unforgettable talent.
This year, headliners Travis Scott, A$AP Rocky, and Playboi Carti tore up the stage, and even more incredible acts delivered top-tier performances across the weekend. We saw 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Kodak Black, Central Cee, Offset, Ice Spice, Lil Uzi Vert, Trippie Redd, GloRilla, Coi Leray, Latto, City Girls, Don Toliver, Turnstile, and more deliver awesome sets to a packed crowd.
When it comes to hip-hop, it doesn’t get much better than this.
On the first day of Rolling Loud 2023, a dull moment was never to be found. With captivating sets from fan favorites like PinkPantheress, Ski Mask The Slump God, Sexyy Red, and Lil Durk, revelers were in hip-hop heaven. Of course, Playboi Carti’s headline set was a highlight. As well as playing hits like “Sky,” “R.I.P.,” and “Shoota,” he treated the crowd to a brand-new song as part of his electrifying performance. From start to finish, day one was a total dream for rap and hip-hop fans.
The second day of the festival hit us with some serious star power. After killer sets from Rae Sremmurd, Trippie Redd, Chief Keef, and more, headliner Travis Scott rounded up the night with a whole host of bangers. He performed his new single, “K-POP,” and revealed the release date of his highly-anticipated fourth album, Utopia, which dropped on July 28.
It wasn’t just the artists bringing the heat to day two of Rolling Loud. Festival goers turned it UP for the ‘fit check — after all, it’s only right to be dressed to the nines for one of the biggest hip-hop festivals in the world.

The final day in hip-hop heaven did not disappoint. With multiple special guests and countless impeccable performances, Rolling Loud 2023 went out with a bang. Offset brought out both Cardi B and Moneybagg Yo for his set, and Bryson Tiller surprised the audience with a special appearance from the singer Mario. Throughout the day, partiers enjoyed performances by Latto, Polo G, Don Toliver, DC The Don, Freddie Gibbs, BONES, and many more. There were also some exciting firsts: Lil Uzi Vert performed Pink Tape for the first time in the U.S., and Turnstile became the first rock band to ever perform at the festival. We are witnessing history being made here!
Headliner A$AP Rocky ended the festival with an incredible set. He finally gave fans a sneak peek from his upcoming album Don’t Be Dumb, and brought out $NOT and ICYTWAT as special guests.
There was so much love in the air that Grizzy Ray thought Fridayy got married…
