Rolling Loud is a music festival that will take place in Miami, July 23-25th, 2021. The amazing line-up includes huge acts such as A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott, and Post Malone. Although it has a whole slew of rappers and hiphop artists, fans couldn’t help but notice that the festival was lacking any international guests.
Of course, with the pandemic, international guests are near impossible to invite over. However, that didn’t stop Rolling Loud from proclaiming their love for K-Pop superstars, BTS. The official account for Rolling Loud announced that their near-perfect line-up was only missing an appearance from the boys themselves.
Only act we’re missing from our lineup is @BTS_twt

ARMYs responded feverishly to the tweet, with some screaming their approval, while others were more on the fence. One fan brought up BTS’s iconic performance at the Rose Bowl, one of America’s hottest events.

While some pointed out that the festival was more for hiphop artists rather than K-Pop, a fan very aptly provided information that BTS had roots in hiphop. With 3 very talented rappers, RM, J-Hope and Suga, it’s undeniable that the boys belong on stage.
For those who aren't familiar with them, @BTS_twt did start out as a hip hop group in 2013. 2 members came as underground rappers. They also learned the history of hip hop/mentored with OG hip hop rappers, and also collabed as well w others like Nicki Minaj, Wale, Warren G, etc pic.twitter.com/2rdIvOKRrG
