50 Cent, J. Cole to Headline Rolling Loud New York 2021

Rolling Loud New York is returning to Queens in 2021.

Is there a city Rolling Loud won’t touch this year?

After taking the year off because of COVID-19, Rolling Loud announced it was returning to Citi Field this year. Rolling Loud New York 2021 will go down from October 28 – 30th and it will be headlined by J. Cole, 50 Cent, and Travis Scott.

Under those headliners are a bunch of New York City rappers who are bubbling in the city. This includes freshly released Bobby Shmurda, Fivio Foreign, Young M.A., Dave East, Flipp Dinero, 22GZ, Bizzy Banks, Lil Tjay, ASAP Ferg, Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow, Joey Bada$$, and more.

Other great rappers on the lineup — who aren’t necessarily from New York City — include Griselda, Playboi Carti, Roddy Ricch, Lil Durk, Lil Uzi Vert, Rico Nasty, and more.

This is the third Rolling Loud lineup announced over the last couple of months. The first was Rolling Loud Miami, which is headlined by A$AP Rocky, Post Malone, and Scott. Next was Rolling Loud California, which features headliners Kid Cudi, Future, and Cole.

Last time Rolling Loud hit the city, there was some controversy. Casanova, decease rapper Pop Smoke, Sheff G, Don Q, and 22Gz were pulled from the festival after the NYPD asked them to due to “public safety concerns.” Hopefully, there will be no incidents like this in October.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, June 11th at 12pm ET. Be warned: people are dying to go to festivals this year and tickets for the first two Rolling Louds sold out the same day.
Check out the full lineup below.
