As festival season continues, the biggest hip-hop artists did not come to play despite the heat in Thailand.
For the first time, the highly-anticipated hip-hop music festival Rolling Loud was brought to Asia, specifically on the shores of Thailand. To fill you in, it’s a huge event that started in the US back in 2015 and discovered emerging hip-hop talents like Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, and standout Soundcloud rappers. Held in Legend Siam in Pattaya, Thailand, notable rap artists headlined Asia’s first ever Rolling Loud.
The festival was nothing short of fire ‘fits (literally) aside from the limited edition merch that included bootleg tees and Levi’s one-off denim DIY tailor shop.
From Cardi B throwing her heels to Offset’s Michael Jackson tribute, here are the best music festival outfits we spotted at Rolling Loud Thailand. (Spoiler alert: each artist took off at least one thing from their outfit during their performances.)
CARDI B AS A GOLDEN STATUE
La Cardi turned up at Rolling Loud Thailand wearing a golden catsuit with fringe and a Cruella De Ville type of weave. She was sweating so bad, her lace front was coming off and took her heels off by the end of the set. (Check slide three to see the moment!) Despite all that, she still performed the hell out of the music festival’s stage.
LIL UZI VERT’S ROLEX SUNVISOR AND SPARKLY TRACKSUIT
Who said the 2000s were over? Lil Uzi pulled off a Juicy Couture look complete with a sparkly zip-up hoodie, joggers, and a Rolex sunvisor.
CHRIS BROWN’S QUILTED JACKET
Chris Brown initially performed onstage wearing a blue quilted jacket with continental-shaped patches that mimicked a globe and patched shorts, but took it off early on as it was too humid.
OFFSET’S MICHAEL JACKSON TRIBUTE
Despite the intense humid weather, Migos’ Offset wore a full military look inspired by Michael Jackson from the brooch, the trousers with harness details, and the leather gloves. (Spoiler alert: he also took ’em off after a few songs.)
JESSI’S SULTRY ONE-PIECE
We see you looking. 👀 K-Pop’s Jessi sizzled on the music festival stage with a purple one-piece outfit complete with matching arm warmers.
MILLI’S “I WANNA BANGKOK” SHORTS
The pride of Thailand slayed everyone else with her vibrant red cut-out top matched with “I Wanna Bangkok” baller shorts. Tough ‘fit, TBH.
DaBaby nailed his first ever Thailand music festival outfit with a bunny-eared basketball cap, white muscle tee, and shorts. To cap his set, he took his shirt off and gave away the pair of Jordans he was wearing onstage.
NAKED BIBI’S BOLD KNIT OUTFIT
Nothing else feels more powerful than wearing a skirt. K-Pop’s BIBI knew she killed her music festival performance outfit in a two-piece distressed knit look.
JAY PARK AND H1GHRMUSIC’S ALL WHITE OUTFITS
If anyone truly gave the high-voltage type of energy onstage, it’s probably Jay Park and H1GHERMUSIC’s Sik-K, Woodie Go Child, Haon, Big NaUGHTY, pH-1, and Groovyroom. They didn’t mind the humidity though, wearing heavily-layered white utilitarian outfits while still rocking the stage. The day prior, Jay Park made a surprise appearance during Jessi’s set and wore a white, breezy mesh tee.
B.I’S FRINGED MUSCLE TEE
Korean rapper B.I brought his A-game to Rolling Loud Thailand wearing a dark-wash vintage tee with fringe that was unintentionally styled in so many ways onstage. From a plain gray shirt, he took it off and it surprisingly looked like a scarf on top of his gray muscle tee.
SKI MASK THE SLUMP GOD’S MUAY THAI SHORTS
It’s a crime to go to Thailand and be unable to grab a pair of Muay Thai shorts. Ski Mask The Slump God did not disappoint and wore a camo vest, boots, and you guessed it, a pair of Muay Thai shorts.
TRAVIS SCOTT’S STATEMENT TEE
Like what one of his rap verses in Franchise says, “yeah in my white tee,” Travis Scott wears a statement shirt that takes a jab at one of the current political issues in the US. He also wore a baseball cap, cargo pants and a pair of his sneaker collab with Nike, the reverse mocha Jordan 1 low.
RAMENGVRL’S FAST AND FURIOUS ‘FIT
Braving the Thailand heat, Indonesian rapper wears a moto jacket paired with racer gloves, baggy cargo pants with a cheeky whale tail.
SLIM JIMMI’S ASTRO BOY BOOTS
NGL, we did not expect MSCHF’s infamous big red boots to look this good onstage. Slim Jxmmi of the rap duo Rae Sremmurd wore nothing but distressed pants, an iced-out chain with his initials and the Astroboy boots.
