A giant video screen collapsed Thursday (July 22) at a South Florida stadium, a day before the Rolling Loud hip-hop music festival was set to begin. There were no injuries.Organizers posted on Twitter that the screen toppled over onto one of the festival’s stages at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, but it was expected to be repaired before doors opened Friday (July 23).
“Nobody was hurt and it will be fixed before doors open tomorrow. The show goes on!” the tweet said. Helicopter news footage shows a large pile of downed scaffolding and other equipment next to one of the stages.
Like many other events, Rolling Loud was canceled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Originally set for May 2020, the event was rescheduled several times. This weekend’s lineup includes A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott and Post Malone.
Kanye West, who held a listening party for his anticipated 10th studio album, DONDA, at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium ahead of Friday’s planned release, is also slated to perform at Rolling Loud Miami.
