Rolling Loud just wrapped up their New York festival which featured Travis Scott, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky Wu-Tang Clan, and Lil Uzi Vert as headliners. We saw other major artists such as YG, Gunna, Pusha T, DaBaby, and others. Rolling Loud was supposed to head over to Hong Kong from October 19-20 but it has now officially been canceled.
Rolling Loud posted on their Facebook page that the cancellation is due to consulting with security experts and it was determined that fans, artists, and staff could be put in danger due to the ongoing protests in the city. The protests are due to citizens in Hong Kong fighting for their rights for democracy against China. The festival was scheduled to take place at the Art Park, West Kowloon Cultural District.
The headliners for Rolling Loud Hong Kong were supposed to be Migos, Wiz Khalifa, Playboi Carti, and more. Despite the cancellation, the festival is still likely to take place there in the future. Refunds are now being processed for fans who already purchased tickets.
It’s really unfortunate that hip-hop fans in Hong Kong won’t be able to witness this experience but safety is always the first priority. Hopefully, it’s rescheduled and is able to come back sometime in 2020. The next international festival for Rolling Loud should be in Australia in January, as was the case earlier this year. Check out the full statement on the Hong Kong cancellation below.
