Marcel Katz with The Art Plug and Rolling Loud founder Matt Zingler have teamed up to bring art to the world’s largest hip hop festival for the first time.
‘The Art Plug Trap House’ is a nearly 3,000 square foot space on the festival grounds that will be packed with artwork and installations by a lineup of 7 artists, who are transforming the area into an interactive, insta-worthy exhibit with disruptive and REAL art.
Nychos will be live painting his colorfully morbid murals on massive (11 foot) canvases throughout the weekend, along with Cuban artist CB Hoyo who will live paint canvases and furniture in an exhibit outfitted with giant neon signs flashing messages like “Buy Art Not Drugs” (with a secondary reading “Well… Buy Both”).
To pay homage to performers – Somehoodlum will create life-sized art installations including a Migos Stir Fry and a giant N.E.R.D.S. box.
LeftyOutThere will be live painting on photographs by Stillz of hiphop artists that performed in the past Rolling Loud.
The exhibit will be open Friday, May 11 to Sunday, May 13.

Music festivals are an opportunity for fans and artists to celebrate their passion for various forms of art. From music to visual installations, Rolling Loud aims to give attendees a memorable experience they will look forward to every year, and it has succeeded. It was important to Katz and Zingler to implement visual art into this year’s festival to give artists a larger platform to communicate their ideas and generate discussion.
Make sure to stop by The Art Plug Trap House to enjoy these installations throughout the weekend.
