Rolling Loud Portugal, one of the world’s largest hip-hop festivals have added two extra dates to their sold-out three-day festival in July 2021. The festival will now run from the 6th of July until the 10th.
They have announced the new acts joining the line-up, including London grime artist, Stormzy. Other acts include Cardi B, 2 Chainz, Lil Baby, Boy Better Know, Lil Vzi Vert, YG, Rick Ross, Joey Bada$$, Kevin Gates, Nines, Amine and Headie One. The festival which will be held in Praia De Rocha Beach, Portimão in The Algarve, had already announced iconic acts for its initial three dates, such as, A$AP Rocky, Future, Wiz Khalifa, Tyga and Young Thug.
The 2020 festival had to be postponed because of the COVID-19 global pandemic, when officials in Portugal banned all events until September 30th. In a statement announcing the news on their website, Rolling Loud Portugal officially said; “Out of concern for the health and safety of our fans, artists, staff and local communities, and in accordance with last week’s directive from the Government of Portugal, Rolling Loud Portugal 2020 is officially postponed and rescheduled for July 6-8, 2021 at Praia da Rocha.”
They continued by saying; “This was a tough, but necessary call to make—Portugal is an incredibly important market for us. For months and months we had been looking forward to raging with all of you from around the world at our first-ever European edition of Rolling Loud. Clearly, this is not a course of action we had hoped to take, but rest assured Rolling Loud Portugal will be back next year and our team has already been coordinating with all parties involved to make Rolling Loud Portugal 2021 even better.”
A limited number of ‘Rolling Loud Experience’ tickets, which will cover all five days, will be made available to people who already have tickets for the initial three days. Presale tickets are on sale from 9am on Thursday 10th of September with general sale tickets becoming available from 9am Friday the 11th here.
