WORLDWIDE HIP-hop brand Rolling Loud is launching a 40,000-capacity edition of the event at Praia da Rocha beach between 8-10 July.

The festival will see A$AP Rocky, Future and Wiz Khalifa deliver headline performances, as well as appearances from AJ Tracey, Lil Baby and Giggs.

“After five years of building our audience in the US brick-by-brick, it was time to bring the party to our friends in Europe. The location on the beach in Portugal is the perfect spot to kick off our European invasion,” says co-founder Tariq Cherif.

Along with Matt Zingler, Cherif launched the original festival in Miami in 2015.

Last year, the brand hosted the first annual Rolling Loud New York at Citi Field (cap. 41,000) in Queens, as well as its inaugural edition of Rolling Loud in Australia at Sydney Olympic Park (82,000).

The brand was due to launch an in Hong Kong last October, but it was called off due to political unrest.

The festival brand has US events in Los Angeles and Oakland.
