Rolling Loud abruptly cancels its upcoming New York 2023 event, citing logistical factors as the primary reason, but vows to return “when the time is right.”

Festival organizers announced on Twitter that Rolling Loud would not return to New York in 2023, citing “logistical factors” as the primary reason. That said, organizers said that “this isn’t ‘goodbye,’ more like ‘see you later.’ We’ll be back in New York when the time is right.” The next US Rolling Loud festival will take place in Miami in July.

“For the last few years, we’ve made some legendary moments happen in Queens,” reads the statement. “We saw the beginning of the King Vamp era, Travis power through his full set through the pain, Carti and Uzi reuniting on stage, Nicki, 50 Cent, and A$AP Rocky putting on iconic headlining performances in their hometown, Juice WRLD’s final festival performance, and many, many more moments.”

“Sadly, due to logistical factors beyond our control, Rolling Loud will not return to New York in 2023. But don’t worry, this isn’t ‘goodbye,’ more like ‘see you later.’ We’ll be back in New York when the time is right. In the meantime, we invite all of our New York fans to meet us in Miami July 21-23 for our biggest, best festival of the year. Love you all! Rolling Loud forever!”

Beginning in 2015, Rolling Loud has become one of hip-hop’s premiere festivals, with top-tier artists including Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Post Malone, 50 Cent, A$AP Rocky, Nicki Minaj, and many more. The festival expanded its reach beyond Miami to touch down in cities like New York and Los Angeles, with Rolling Loud California 2023 featuring headliners Future, Travis Scott, and Playboi Carti.

Rolling Loud will also expand internationally with forthcoming events in Germany, Portugal, and Thailand. Its next stateside event will occur in Miami in July, but a roster of slated performances has yet to be announced.
