Rolling Loud Festival Is Delayed Again
In April 2021, unfortunate news broke that Rolling Loud would not be taking place in May 2021, as originally planned. At the time, the festival brand announced new dates from July-23-25, 2021 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
Organizers made sure to assure any tickets purchased for the original show would be refunded if the buyer couldn’t make the new dates, along with “sweetening” the deal for those who chose to keep their tickets.
Thank you all for your patience. We kept the faith as long as we could for the May dates, but ultimately we still face challenges that prevent us from gathering together at Rolling Loud Miami in early May. With that being said, we are excited to announce that Rolling Loud will now take place on July 23-25, 2021 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens!

Prior to his performance, Swae went to Instagram and teased fans about having something special on deck.
