Travis Scott to headline Rolling Loud Portugal 2023

Travis Scott has been confirmed as the first headliner for the 2023 edition of Portugal’s Rolling Loud festival. The three-day event had its inaugural run earlier this year despite being launched back in 2020. Following a successful rebirth post-Covid, the event will return to Praia De Rocha Beach in Portimão on July 5th, 2023.

Prospective attendees would do well to keep an eye out for presale tickets, which go on sale on December 9th, as well as further headliner announcements over the coming weeks. This year’s event featured headliners J. Cole, A$AP Rocky and Future.

The festival also saw performances from the likes of AJ Tracey, Lil Uzi Vert, Skepta, Roddy Ricch, Jack Harlow, DaBaby, Ms. Banks, Rico Nasty and Central Cee. The event has been billed as the “world’s largest hip-hop festival.”

Rolling Loud has already staged events in Miami, Los Angeles, the Bay Area and New York City. Scott will also be headlining the 2023 LA event, which runs from March 3rd-5th and takes place at the Hollywood Park Grounds. Playboi Varti and Future are also on the lineup.

The LA event looks set to be quite the occasion. Playboi Carti will close Friday’s festivities after appearances by Kodak Black, Tyga, Trippie Redd, DaBaby, Saweetie, Fivio Foreign and Soulja Boy. The Saturday will feature Travis Scott, Lil Baby, Don Toliver, 2 Chainz, Kevin Gates, Lil Yachty, City Girls, Aminé and Chief Keef.

Lil Wayne is also set to make a “special guest” appearance on Sunday. The final day will boast performances by 44 acts, including Lil Uzi Vert, Tory Lanez, Polo G, Moneybagg Yo, Ski Mask The Slump God, Central Cee, Lil Tecca, OhGeesy and Sheck Wes.
