Now that summer has officially arrived, it’s time for the summer music festivals to begin. Naturally, that includes Rolling Loud, also called “the largest hip-hop festival in the world.” The popular hip-hop festival is set to take place in Miami this year. And fortunately, Miami is one of the best places to kick off the party.

Why Miami?

Because of its booming tourism industry, Miami is a popular hotspot for locals and tourists to explore. It’s a major city in Florida that draws plenty of attention due to its lively culture that includes day parties and nightlife. Miami is so popular, several songs have been made about it. In 1997, actor Will Smith made a song about the tropical destination called “Miami.” And more recently, rapper Drake paid homage to the city in his hit song “305 To My City.”

Celebrities Show Love to Miami

Speaking of Drake, he certainly isn’t shy about his love and appreciation for Miami. He’s been spotted at various venues in the city, including popular nightclub STORY and famous steakhouse Prime 112. He even purchased (and eventually sold) a condo with ocean views in downtown Miami.

But he’s not the only one who loves the robust city. Many celebrities travel to Miami for its tropical weather and laidback beach vibes. Famous artists like Kanye West, Beyonce, and Taraji P. Henson have all been spotted in the city. And we can’t blame them. It’s the perfect destination to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
