Rock The Bells 2012 Lineup: Nas, Kid Cudi, Missy Elliot, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony To HeadlineBy Laura Aguirre
Rock The Bells is taking tips from Coachella and doubling the number of days for its yearly event. It’s also bringing back a couple high-profile reunions from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and the Hit Squad. Elsewhere, Nas, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi and Missy Elliot are also on the bill.
The festival will kick off on August 18 in San Bernardino, California. Then Rock The Bells will travel to Mountain View, California for August 25 and 26, and will make its final stop in Holdmdel, New Jersey on September 1 and 2.
Also hitting the stage will be Timbaland, Redman and Method Man, Salt-N-Pepa, Ice Cube, J. Cole, Lupe Fasco, Dipset, Immortal Technique, E-40, Yela Rock and Dom Kennedy.
Overall, the bill is quite impressive. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will make a special tribute to Eazy-E by performing “E. 1999 Eternal.” Hey, maybe they’ll even get a hologram. Who knows. Then there’s Ice Cube, who will surely be performing some old school gangster rap and maybe even do his famous sea walk. And then there’s Missy Elliot, who’s been under the radar for quite some time now.
Presale tickets will be available on Friday, May 18th at 1 P.M. Regular tickets go on sale a day later. For more information visit the official Rock The Bells website.
