Rolling Loud representatives have stepped forward to address reports of shots fired at the festival.
The show will go on. Late Friday evening, social media became abuzz with reports claiming that shots fired at the Rolling Loud Music Festival in Miami. Law enforcement was called in after partygoers started running for cover with claims that there was an active shooter at the venue. It turns out that those reports were false and cops have since confirmed our suspicion.
“There was a false alarm of an incident on site that caused people to panic,” Rolling Loud reps said. “The situation has been confirm by police as a false alarm. The show is proceeding as planned with slight delays. Thank you for your patience.”
