First, here are some quick tips to enjoy your experience. B.Y.O.W. “bring your own water”. Water at the venues is very expensive, so try to bring at least a bottle from home. Make sure you take into account all the transit options, if you are going with friends and want to arrive together, you might want to rent a van to pack your friends and a cooler full of goodies, but remember where you parked, it will save you a lot of trouble. Bring clear zip-lock bags with your favorite snacks, apples, string cheese and trail mix just to give you some ideas. Last but not least, get one of those portable phone chargers.
If urban music is more your style, you can attend one of the biggest hip-hop festivals in the world. In the five years that it´s been running, Rolling Loud that spans from May 10th to the 12th has become a force to be reckoned with. This year is not the exception, with acts like Migos, Travis Scott, Kid Cudi, Cardi B, Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, and dozens more. “Sick” beats and catchy songs will make sure you are on your toes the whole time.
