Travis Scott hovered from the sky during his headlining performance, basking in the hyped-up crowd and the massive fireworks show that ended the night!
Roddy Ricch performed with a full band for his massive Deleón Stage set, coming back out for an encore performance of “The Box.”
Coi Leray performed the infamous TikTok dance to her poppin’ new single “TWINNEM” with her group of backup dancers.
The Griselda collective, including Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine, Westside Gunn, and Armani Caesar (pictured below) brought bruising Buffalo energy to their nighttime set.
Rain was in the forecast for the final day of Rolling Loud New York, but instead the 55k+ attendees of Rolling Loud New York 2021 were treated to beautiful fall weather, the sun poking through the clouds for much of the day before a slight drizzle at night. The autumn breeze carried sounds from all three stages across the festival, transporting the music of rap’s biggest names from Citi Field out to the Long Island Sound.
The night ended with a spectacular performance from Travis Scott, who closed the night with his usual spectacle, but before he took the Deleón Stage, fans were treated to standout sets from artists ranged from gritty mafiosos like Griselda to hyperactive SoundCloud risers like SoFaygo to flex-heavy trappers like Young Dolph and Key Glock. Saturday’s fest had an unmistakable NYC flavor, with performances from fan favorites like Lil TJay, Fivio Foreign, A$AP Ferg, and risers like Rah Swish, DUSTY LOCANE, and more.
Founded by Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif, Rolling Loud’s second foray into the Big Apple continues the festival’s mission to bring back live hip-hop after a too-long absence. In December, Rolling Loud returns with Rolling Loud California, bringing headliners like Kid Cudi, J. Cole, and Future, and many more of the best rappers on the West Coast and beyond.
