After seeing the way RL Grime destroyed Hard Fest AND Lollapalooza with his spectacular sets, we had to make this list. The transitions, the lighting, the drops, everything is so perfectly timed it blows our minds. For all those who missed out on his festival performances in the first half of the year, don’t worry, there’s still time to catch the King of Trap in action. Whether you’re in the States, Australia or New Zealand, Henry is on his way. Honestly, you don’t want to miss out. Here’s every music festival RL Grime is playing in the second half of this year (so far).
Outside Lands is taking place in San Francisco this August 9th to 11th 2019. Catch RL Grime playing on Saturday, 8:40pm at the Twin Peaks stage. It’s listed as being 75 minutes long which means you’ll get to hear all the hits aka more time to get your rave on. This is the only way to shut down day 2 of the festival. Get your tickets now.
Prime Music Festival
Prime Festival is going down at Adado Riverfront Park in Michigan. RL Grime will be performing on Friday 20th September, alongside Whetan and DaBaby. There’s no better way to start the weekend than at a music festival with RL Grime and no better time than now to secure those tickets.

Haunted Fest is going down on October 25th in Ohio and Indiana. RL Grime is on the line up for both.

The Ohio line up also includes Rezz, Dombresky and Young Bombs. The Indiana line up includes Cam Miller, Hex Cougar and Whetan. This is going to be a halloween party to remember! Tickets on sale now.
Escape: Psycho Circus
The line up for Escape: Psycho Circus was just announced and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s taking place in Southern California on October 25th to October 26th which is around Halloween. You know what that means? RL could totally drop a new halloween mix there. This’ll be an event to tell your neighbors, your cat, your dog, your grandkids, anyone and everyone! The line up also includes; Alesso, Excision, San Holo, What So Not, Win And Woo, Deadmau5, and Dillon Francis. We don’t know what to do with ourselves except buy tickets.

Now it’s time to head down under to Australia. Brisbane gets the first taste of RL Grime at Wildlands. This one day festival takes place on December 28th 2019. With artists such as Tyler the Creator, Rüfüs Du Sol, What So Not, Skepta, Ella Mai and Gunna also taking the stage this is a party you won’t want to miss.

We low key called it. RL Grime is heading to R & V in Gisborne, New Zealand to play on December 29th. That same night, Disclosure, Green Velvet and Dom Dolla will also be taking the stage. Now is the time to get those tickets.
Rhythm & Alps
Next up, the south island of New Zealand gets to experience the king live in action. Rhythm & Alps in Wanaka is the place to be to see RL Grime perform on December 30th 2019.

There’s only one place you need to be to welcome in the new decade, and that place is Origin Fields. Taking place in Perth, Western Australia watch RL Grime take the stage on NYE alongside Snakehips, Gunna, Skepta, Ella Mai and Tyler the Creator. We can’t think of a better way to shut down this decade, register for pre-sale tickets now.
While he’s down in Australia and New Zealand he could possibly play Rhythm & Vines in Gisborne and Field Day in Sydney on January 1st (the line ups for these festivals are yet to be announced so fingers crossed. We’ll be adding more to this list as soon as they’re announced). Update: 14th August – RL Grime has been confirmed for R & V for December 29th. Field Day also posted a video with UCLA as the background music so sounds like we’ll see RL there too.
