Rolling Loud Music Festival Approved For Bayfront Park After Threat of Lawsuit

The show will go on for another music festival in Miami’s Bayfront Park schedule for this May – after an attorney for the event suggested a possible lawsuit if the event was cancelled.

Members of the Bayfront Park Management Trust approved the Rolling Loud music festival, to be held May 5-7, during a meeting Tuesday. The event, which is scheduled to feature Kendrick Lamar, Future and Lil Wayne, has already sold nearly 40,000 tickets and will feature two stages – a much smaller event than the Ultra Music Festival that took place last month.

The decision comes after attorney Jeffrey Bass, according to the Miami Herald, wrote a letter to Miami’s city attorney saying that the organizers would lose in excess of $30 million if the weekend was not allowed to go on as scheduled. The letter went on to state that organizers would hold the Trust liable if that took place.

The third annual event will be making its debut inside Bayfront Park in 2017. According to the Herald, trust chairman and Miami Commissioner Frank Carollo was upset that the event was scheduled without consent of the board by park director Timothy Schmand – who has since submitted his resignation.
