In May, Guerilla Union announced the new roster that would make up the annual Rock the Bells Festival. GU’s Chang Weisberg spoke with HipHopDX about the year, the acts and 9th annual event. In June, more acts were added to the line-ups. Now, just days before the first show kicks off in San Bernardino, California, GU has announced even more special guests.
Biz Markie has been added to all of the Rock the Bells dates. He will join DJ Lance Rock & Friends for three shows. Both California dates will also get to see Travis Barker as the famed drummer will join Yelawolf on stage for his sets. Also, for this weekend only, San Bernardio will get to see a full set from Psycho Realm. Moreover, it was announced that Xzibit would link up with Ras Kass and Saafir to reignite their collaborative strength as the Golden State Warriors.
In addition to this news, set times for all three dates have been announced. This weekend will see Kid Cudi closing out the Rock the Bells stage on Saturday with Nas doing the same on Sunday. Method Man & Redman will handle the closing duties at the 36 Chambers Stage on the first night with Ice Cube closing things down at the Paid Dues stage come Sunday. Full set times can be found at Rock the Bells’ official site.
