This weekend, people across Thailand gather to celebrate Songkran, a celebration of the new year filled with joy and reflection. The dawn of a new year provides the perfect backdrop for Rolling Loud Thailand, the first-ever Rolling Loud festival to be held in Asia. The festival ushers in a new era for the world’s premier rap festival brand, and offers fans from Asia the chance to see their favorite rappers in person.
With just one night of the three-day festival in the bag, Rolling Loud Thailand entered the record books as the largest music festival ever in the Land of Smiles. Located at Legend Siam in the beachside city of Pattaya, the first day of Rolling Loud Thailand brought the blend of cultures that makes this festival unique. The Bronx’s own Cardi B closed out the evening on the OKX Stage with a series of hits, inspiring fans to shout along. Cardi wasn’t alone–earlier in the day, Uzi Vert and Rae Sremmurd brought out-of-this-world energy, and Ferg, Blueface, and Tana showed out for the crowd.
The festival’s first day was a star-studded showcase for Asia’s prodigious rap talent, led by South Korean multi-talent Bibi and Malaysian veteran Joe Flizzow, while homegrown Thai talents like rap pioneer F.Hero and indie rap icon UrboyTJ lit it up on the Levi’s Stage.
The rest of the weekend promises much more music and cultural exchange, as heavy-hitters like Travis Scott, Chris Brown, Jessi, and Thaitanium hit the stage.
