MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - The Rolling Loud Festival has opened its doors for the first time at Hard Rock Stadium since the COVID-19 pandemic forced organizers to cancel last year’s event.
The three-day hip-hop festival will feature headliners such as Travis Scott, ASAP Rocky and Post Malone at the stadium, which is expected to attract thousands of fans.
However, before the event began, workers had to repair a video wall that collapsed on Thursday. No injuries were reported.
Cameras captured a long line of cars full of people waiting to enter the venue during the Friday afternoon rush.
Aerial footage from 7Skyforce HD captured dozens of attendees running toward one of the stages as the performances began.
However, the hoards of people will not only be at the Miami Gardens venue all weekend.
“While the concerts are taking place outside our city, you can expect a high volume of visitors headed our way, especially to South Beach,” Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber said.
Miami Beach Police officers will be working 12-hour shifts, and they will be assisted by other law enforcement departments.
Several streets have been closed, and delays are expected into the city through the major causeways, plus other eastbound closures on surface streets.
The festival will run until Sunday night.
