    The Oakland Police Department has set up a "complaint hotline" ahead of the two-day Rolling Loud Festival that is set to take place at the Oakland Coliseum Saturday and Sunday.

    The music festival is expected to draw more than 40,000 people and the music of big names like Travis Scott and Whiz Khalifah is anticipated to be heard in Oakland and in northern parts of San Leandro.

    "Rolling loud is the biggest hip hop festival in the world," said co-founder of the event Tariq Cherif. "We have actually doubled in size from last year in mountain view to this year in Oakland."

    Not only will the festival feature popular artists but food, cars, skateboard demos, a Ferris wheel and, of course, loud music that will go on until about 10 p.m.

    Though the event is monitored by the Oakland Police Department, San Leandro Police has implemented extra staffing to address any issues that may arise from the event.

    Those with noise complaints regarding the concert were given this number to call (702) 820-3424. However, NBC Bay Area has made multiple attempts to get through but the line was disconnected as of 7 p.m. Saturday.  

    The calls are supposed to be monitored by the concert promoter’s staff during the show.
