The popular festival will be returning to the Hollywood Park Grounds adjacent to SoFi Stadium in Inglewood from March 3-5, 2023. Tickets go on sale this Friday (November 18).

Playboi Carti and Travis Scott will also headline, making for the latter’s first headlining show in the United States since 2021’s Astroworld Festival tragedy. Travis was briefly in the conversation to replace Kanye West at Rolling Loud Miami in July, but the show’s CEO/co-founder Tariq Cherif alleged that the venue wouldn’t allow it because of the deaths at Astroworld.
Cherif later retracted his statement and instead said that it was just too short of a turnaround to pull off Travis’ elaborate stage design.
The Cactus Jack rapper did make his return to festivals while across the pond earlier this year, and even debuted some new music during the set at London’s O2 Arena. The crowd response was overwhelmingly positive, and Travis later celebrated backstage with NBA stars James Harden and Kevin Durant.
Other names on the 2023 SoCal bill include Kodak Black, Tyga, Lil Baby, Lil Uzi Vert, Tory Lanez, Moneybagg Yo and more. One name who likely won’t be appearing on a Rolling Loud lineup again, however, is 21 Savage.
The Atlanta-based rhymer was set to perform on the final night of Rolling Loud New York in September, but pulled out at the last minute. Shortly afterward, he asserted in a since-deleted tweet that he’d never return to the festival again.
“Rolling Loud will never get a show out of me ever again,” he wrote.
No confirmation of what exactly happened was ever released, but the rumor is that 21 showed up too late to perform and wasn’t allowed to get on stage.
