Hip-hop's premier music festival is back. On Tuesday, Guerilla Union held a press conference to reveal its lineup of hip-hop all-stars for Rock the Bells 2012. Freestyler extraordinaire Supernatural delivered the list of performers one-by-one with an impromptu rap, rattling off names like Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, Nas, J. Cole and Mac Miller, as well as veteran acts like Missy Elliott, Timbaland and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.
Lupe Fiasco's name also appears on the festival's flyer, but on Wednesday morning (May 16), the Chi-Town lyricist tweeted that despite what was printed, he would not be in attendance this year. "Not doing Rock The Bellz...thats a typo fam and friends...," he wrote.
For the first time in nine years, Rock the Bells will expand its daylong festival to two days.
The most interesting addition for this year is probably DJ Lance Rock and Friends from the Nick Jr. show "Yo Gabba Gabba!" (You know, for all the 3-year-olds in attendance.)
Festival stops include the Nos Events Center in San Bernardino, Calif. on Aug. 18 and 19, Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, Calif. on Aug. 25 and 26, and Pnc Bank Arts Center in Homdel, N.J. on Sept. 1 and 2. Tickets go on sale May 19.
