MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS SF) – The lineup for the 10 Year Anniversary of Mountain View’s Hip Hop festival, Rock the Bells has been announced. The four-city, traveling hip hop event will mix the old and the new, featuring notable artists such as East Bay rappers E-40 and Too Short to Common (pictured) and Wu-Tang Clan.
Also set to perform are Bone Thugs N Harmony, Jurassic 5, Kid Cudi, Talib Kweli, among others.
Much like 2012’s Coachella appearance of the late Tupac Shakur, this year will feature virtual performances by “deceased” acts Ol’ Dirty Bastard (Wu-Tang Clan) and Eazy-E (NWA/Bone Thugs N Harmony).
Rock the Bells will be held in San Bernardino, California on September 7 & 8, a stop in our neck of the woods at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View on September 14 & 15; Washington DC on September 28 & 29 and finishing up in Rutherford, New Jersey on October 4 & 5.
Tickets go on sale for the Mountain View show on Saturday, May 18. More information available at rockthebells.net
