Rolling Loud and Covid-19

Though the ongoing crisis will not last forever, it’s not guaranteed when it’ll be safe to administer a large-scale festival. As a result, the Rolling Loud Festival that was scheduled in 2020 was postponed and rescheduled to 2021 in Portugal. Out of interest in the health and safety of the people, the Portuguese Government implemented many emergency laws and legislations. This will help to keep fans, artists, staff, locals, the industry, and the economy protected.

Are you a hip-hop enthusiast? Would you like to get your hands on an ideal flight or holiday deal to Portugal? Then, Travel Center UK will be there for all your travel needs, just a call or email away!
