Rock the Bells X Festival -

The ROCK THE BELLS HIP HOP FESTIVAL SERIES – presented by Boost Mobile in association with Guerilla Union (Paid Dues Independent Hip Hop Festival, Cypress Hill’s SmokeOut) – has announced another round of artist additions to the 2013 lineup. ACTION BRONSON | BIG DADDY KANE | DELTRON 3030 | FREDDIE GIBBS | FREEWAY | GIRL TALK | J. COLE | KRS-ONE | PRETTY LIGHTS | RAPSODY & 9TH WONDER | RIFF RAFF | SLICK RICK & DOUG E. FRESH | SEAN P | SMOKE DZA | WALE AND YG will join previously announced performers on this year’s Rock The Bells Festival Series lineup.

Guerilla Union CEO and founder Chang Weisberg revealed the list of recently-added performers at the second annual Rock The Bells New York Press Conference & Launch Party on June 24th at The Highline Ballroom, where he also let the public in on what new features to expect from this year’s festival. “We’re excited to add to Rock The Bells history by bringing the tour to two never-before-used venues on the east coast. The Infield Festival Grounds at Meadowlands Racetrack has a beautiful, massive grass infield and is just a quick train ride from the heart of Manhattan, making it a perfect location for our festival. Additionally, the Festival Grounds at RFK Stadium in D.C. have a prime, traditional layout with open floor General Admission and VIP standing room, which will make the event flow easy to navigate for our fans.”

Weisberg continues, “It’s also important to acknowledge the gap being bridged between hip hop and EDM. They’re no longer two solitary genres and we’re starting to see major overlap between both styles, especially in areas like LA, NYC, and DMV. Rock The Bells tenth year marks the perfect time to celebrate that influence with acts like Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Chase & Status and Mimosa. Hip-hop is not one dimensional, it’s actually more diverse than it’s ever been, and I’m glad that we’re able to showcase and celebrate the many different sub-styles of the genre.”

In unprecedented hip-hop history, more than twenty artists on this year’s bill are releasing new albums this year including Curren$y (Pilot Talk III), Danny Brown (Old), Deltron 3030 (Event II), Dom Kennedy (Get Home Safely), Earl Sweatshirt (Doris), Hopsin (Knock Madness), Juicy J (Stay Trippy Mane), Schoolboy Q (Oxymoron), Tech N9ne (Something Else) and many more. Attendees can expect epic performances from Kid Cudi and Tyler the Creator who will both be coming in hot off the success of their recently released projects – Indicud and Wolf – as well as new material off the highly anticipated A Better Tomorrow, the ninth studio album from the legendary Wu-Tang Clan.

Tickets for the ROCK THE BELLS FESTIVAL SERIES are now available in all markets. Fans are encouraged to sign up for the mailing list to receive important announcements and up-to-date information regarding the festival.

I like how they are trying to throw some EDM (god I hate that acronym) acts on the bill (i.e, Chase and Status for one)

I can't stop my brain from reading EDM as Electronic Death Metal.
