Rolling Loud, the world’s largest hip-hop festival franchise, will return to Australia for the first time since 2019.

The long-awaited follow-up will take place at Sydney’s Giants Stadium on 26 January followed by Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne on 27 January, with a number of other side shows yet to be announced.

“We are hyped to come back to Australia for the first time in years,” says Rolling Loud co-founders Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif.

“The Sydney fans were so passionate in 2019, so we are eager to return Down Under, and bring Rolling Loud to more cities this time. The Aussie shows will be a unique Rolling Loud experience, and we’re excited for everyone to see what’s in store.”

Tickets range between AUS$305.71 for general admission and $661.51 for VIP. The first wave of acts for Rolling Loud Australia is due to be announced on 1 November.

The 2024 instalment marks an expansion of Rolling Loud Australia 2019, which took place at Sydney’s Olympic Park on one day in January.

The Miami-hailing festival has also taken place in Los Angeles, New York, Sydney, Toronto, Rotterdam, Munich and the Algarve, and will launch in Thailand next year.
