INTERVIEW: Dope Ent’s Rolling Loud Festival Is Tomorrow In Wynwood….Meet The Guys That Are Behind It…

February 27, 2015

By Dro

Rolling Loud is kicking off their inaugural festival in Wynwood on Saturday February 28th at Soho Studios. Presented by Dope Ent, the festival was a labor of more than four years of consistent shows, bookings and loyalty to their fan base. We caught up with the visionaries behind Dope Ent and Rolling Loud (pictured above, Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler) last night for a last minute convo about their upcoming festival and how they got to the point they are at today with their company. And if you haven’t yet, make sure to buy tickets to Rolling Loud by clicking here. Otherwise, read our conversation with Tariq and Matt of Dope Ent below. Photo taken in front of Wynwood Kitchen, February 26, 2015 at 8PM. ——- In such a typically difficult market like South Florida, why is it that you guys decided to put together the type of events and shows that you guys have produced over the last few years? Tariq: It started because nobody was booking the type of rappers we wanted to see in concert. Not just in Miami but in Tallahassee, Gainesville, Tampa, Orlando [etc). We went to school up north and up north it was all EDM DJs and when it was a rap show, it was a larger than life rap show with no underground type stuff. So we saw a lane that we could take over and we made it our mission to do that. And four and a half years later, all of a sudden we’re here. We are the premiere hip-hop booking company in Florida and we’re proud to be here. Matt: Influence-wise, I’d say that we really stick to what we believe in, in musicians we respect and artists we feel are coming up. Notice that on the lineup for …read more

Ultra Fortifies Lineup With Phase II Announcement

February 27, 2015

By Carlucha

In just two days it’ll be March, which means one thing: Ultra Music Festival. The 17th incarnation of the untz-untz sensation is back and although not bigger than ever (it was cut to just one weekend from last year’s two) the lineup hasn’t suffered. With the announcement of Phase II, get ready to regret not buying tickets to this year’s electronic extravaganza taking over Bayfront Park March 27-29. Good thing there’s still some GA available for the price of $450. Or you can always make it rain in VIP after shelling out $1,150. Worth the price tag? You tell us after seeing who’s been added. Spoiler alert: it includes Seth Troxler, Chromeo, Boyz Noize, Clatone and Dash Berlin. And remember, there’s still one more phase to go. In other words, get ready to party.
