Rock The Bells is on and popping this year!!! I’m a little surprised at all the young/commerical acts that are on the bill this year, since in the past Rock The Bells has stayed away from commercial artists, but i guess that’s the result of more hip hop artists crossing into the mainstream. The line up ncludes: Nas (!!!!!!!!!!!!!) , Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco, Ice Cube, Mac Mailler, Dipset, Kendrick Lamar, Method & Redman, A$AP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Tyga, 2 Chainz, Naughty by Nature, Salt N Pepa, Slick Rick, Prodigy, Yelawolf, Dom Kennedy, Jay Rock & more. RZA from Wu-Tang will host his own “36 Cambers” stage, Missy Elliot & Timbaland are “very special guests” and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will celebrate their 20th anniversary reunion with a tribute to Eazy-E. Rock The Bells 2012 will be making two-day stops at Los Angeles (August 18 + 19) and Mountain View, CA (August 25 + 26), along with an east coast stop in Holmdel, NJ (September 1 + 2) and a special Haitian benefit show later in December. Pre-sale starts Friday, May 18 at 10am PST. On-sale to follow Saturday, May 19th at 10am PST. Get ’em while they’re hot!
