Bringing in hundreds of artists and tens of thousands of fans to events in cities around the globe, Rolling Loud is rap music’s most iconic stage. Rolling Loud Toronto is the brand’s newest event, but it already has a claim to being one of the most memorable. Day one included dozens of sets from some of the biggest names in rap on both sides of the Atlantic. The first day of their inaugural Canadian festival was closed out by a headlining set from South London’s own Dave, who shined on stage under the glow of the CN Tower.
Friday brought one of the most diverse arrays of talent in Rolling Loud history, rolling out the red carpet for UK stalwarts Central Cee, Bronx hero ABoogieWitDaHoodie, Afrobeats superstar Rema, and RL regulars Rae Sremmurd. Canadian rap heroes like Roy Wood$ and Night Lovell also blessed the stage, while BIA led a sizable contingent of rap’s leading ladies, including Tay Money and red hot risers Bktherula and Kaash Paige.
Located at Ontario Place, a picturesque venue nestled on the shores of Lake Ontario, Rolling Loud Toronto brought a vibe unlike any other event in the brand’s history. Stay tuned for much more over the next two days, as headliners Future and WizKid close out even more action-packed days.
