Los Angeles, CA – May 26, 2021 – Tickets are on sale now at for UPROAR Hip-Hop Festival at The Torch at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the immersive and interactive music, arts and nightlife experience headlined by Lil Wayne, Young Money and Friends, taking place August 13th 2021. In addition, the UPROAR Hip-Hop Festival is proud to announce the star-studded event of the summer will be streamed worldwide via official partner Mandolin, whose technology is redefining live entertainment.

UPROAR Hip-Hop Festival also marks a grand opening of the nearly century-old LA Coliseum, which has been named a historic landmark, after a multi-million dollar renovation. The Festival will take place within The Torch, the general admission venue located in the iconic Peristyle plaza entrance 

The UPROAR Hip-Hop Festival Experience

UPROAR will be an experiential summer night complete with music, dancing, art, food and drinks, and much more. The action will begin as soon as attendees pass through the Coliseum gates.

In addition to highly anticipated live performances, attendees can enjoy mixes from a live DJ and hit the dance floor in between sets. Festival-goers can explore, browse and shop throughout the designated Vendor Village featuring dozens of local vendors, and nosh on food and beverages served by LA’s best eateries. There’s also a beer garden to boot, plus basketball hoops for the “3 Point Cut” experience and Selfie Stations complete with plexiglass mirrors so guests can perfectly capture and record all the action.

Lil Wayne is passionate about sharing inspiration and encouraging others to do the same, so fittingly, mediums of expression beyond music that will be featured at UPROAR include dance and art — and up-and-coming creators can get in on the action early. In the months before the event, submissions will be accepted for the Dance Competition and Art Walk. Details will be available on June 1st on @GKUAOfficial Instagram. Dance teams will be competing for the chance to win a performance on the big stage for next year’s UPROAR in 2022. For those whose chosen form of creativity is two-dimensional, UPROAR will also have an Art Walk showcasing rising star artists. 

As an added bonus, UPROAR’s VIP Club offers VIP in-person guests access to a relaxing space to kick back with friends while being entertained. The MC host will broadcast interactions with celebrity guests and performers straight from the VIP Club. In addition, VIP Ticket holders can access the celebrity wall to catch moments with celebrity guests and artists.
