Last night was the official Rock The Bells 2012 launch party at the House of Blues Sunset Strip, where the annual lineup was revealed and a few acts performed for a crowd of hip hop enthusiasts.
Among the performers on this year’s lineup include Kid Cudi, Atmosphere, Wiz Khalifa, Ice Cube, DJ Lance Rock & Friends, Missy Elliot + Timbaland, and the 20th Anniversary reunion of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. For the first time ever, the show will be a 2-day festival – taking place at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA on August 18-19, Moutnain View, CA on August 25-26 and Sept 1-2 in Holmdel , NJ.
As usual, Supernatural came out and freestyled the entire lineup. When DJ Rocky Rock (as you may know from Sublime With Rome) was nowhere to be found, legendary LA producer DJ Quik started beat boxing for Supernatural. This is one of the biggest lineups in this festival’s history and is sure to be an awesome show, for not only hip hop fans, but for fans of great music in general.
