The anticipation for Rolling Loud Australia is reaching a fever pitch, with hip-hop enthusiasts across the country eagerly awaiting the lineup announcement after it was announced the festival would be returning in 2024.

As the excitement builds, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive and many big names have been thrown out there as potential headliners, including Travis Scott and Playboy Carti. Website WhatsLively has also predicted that Future and Toosii could be taking the stage as headline acts.

Rolling Loud was last in Australia with their monster festival in Sydney at the beginning of 2019. It featured acts including Future, Rae Sremmurd, YG, Tyga, Playboi Carti and locals Manu Crooks and Sophiegrophy.

The brand recently launched for the first time in Asia and hosted a festival in Thailand on April 13th and 15th with headliner Travis Scott alongside Cardi B, Lil Uzi Vert, Rick Ross, Soulja Boy and many many more.

Now, we've compiled a list of artists who would set the stage on fire and create unforgettable moments at the highly-anticipated festival. From established legends of the genre to rising stars, here are just some of the hip-hop artists we're hoping to see grace the stages at Rolling Loud Australia in 2024.

1. Kid Cudi

A true pioneer in the hip-hop genre, Kid Cudi's emotionally charged lyrics and innovative soundscapes have resonated with fans for over a decade.

With the release of 2022’s Entergalactic garnering widespread acclaim, his presence at Rolling Loud Australia would undoubtedly create an electrifying atmosphere.

2. Megan Thee Stallion

Megan Thee Stallion's fierce energy and empowering anthems have solidified her as a force to be reckoned with in the hip-hop world.

Her captivating stage presence and chart-topping hits would undoubtedly ignite the crowd (can you imagine Hot Girl Summer live?), making her a must-see performer at the festival.

Plus, we missed seeing her Down Under after she dropped out of Festival X in 2022, so we think it’s time Meg made it up to us.

3. A$AP Rocky

As a true trendsetter in both fashion and music, ASAP performing at Rolling Loud Australia would undoubtedly be a highlight.

Plus, we know he’s travelled here several times before over the course of his career, and performed at previous Rolling Loud shows across the world.

4. Sampa the Great

An Australian gem, Sampa the Great's unique blend of hip-hop, soul, and spoken word has earned her international recognition. Her thought-provoking lyrics and captivating live performance would undoubtedly be an amazing festival addition.

5. Playboi Carti

Known for his hypnotic beats, Playboi Carti has become a symbol of the new wave of hip-hop. His mosh-pit-inducing tracks and energetic stage presence would definitely be an unforgettable experience for festival-goers, and his tunes would no doubt go off in a fezzy environment.

6. Thandi Phoenix

Adding a touch of R&B and soul to the hip-hop mix, Thandi Phoenix's powerful vocals and relatable lyrics have made her a rising star in the Australian music scene.

Her fusion of genres and infectious energy would make for a standout performance at Rolling Loud Australia while shining a light on the local talent we have Down Under.

7. Travis Scott

A master of spectacle and an icon of modern hip-hop, Travis Scott's live performances are nothing short of grandiose.

With his high-octane energy, innovative stage design and a catalogue of hits that have dominated charts and playlists that continues to grow with the release of UTOPIA, Travis Scott would undoubtedly deliver a mind-blowing experience for fans at Rolling Loud Australia.

8. The Kid LAROI

There’s no doubt that Sydney-born The Kid LAROI has taken the global music scene by storm with his melodic flows and relatable lyrics.

As a rising star with immense potential, his performance would almost be a homecoming celebration and a testament to Australia's influence on the hip-hop landscape.

9. Rico Nasty

Rico Nasty's unapologetic attitude and genre-blurring sound have earned her a dedicated following that would flock in droves if she were to be listed on the bill, and her high-energy performance and punk-infused rap would add a refreshing edge to the festival.

10. Baker Boy

Combining hip-hop with Indigenous Australian culture, Baker Boy's infectious energy and bilingual rhymes have made him a standout artist. His performance would not only entertain but also celebrate the rich diversity of Australia's music scene.
