Kid Cudi, Wiz Khalifa and Missy Elliott & Timbaland (in a joint special appearance) are some of the big names slated to perform at annual hip-hop fest Rock The Bells 2012. Also on the lineup are J. Cole, Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Lupe Fiasco, A$AP Rocky and Mac Miller, with hosting duties by RZA and Supernatural. Bur for those whose hearts will forever be in the 90s, the bill also boasts performances by Ice Cube (more known for his acting than his rapping nowadays), Salt-N-Pepa and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, who will be celebrating their 20th anniversary reunion. Time to dry-clean those old flannel sweatshirts!
Rock The Bells 2012 will take place in three separate locations this summer: August 18 and 19 at the Nos Events Center in San Bernadino, CA; August 25 and 26 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA; and September 1 and 2 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ.
Many of the artists will only be playing select markets. Check local listings for confirmed acts. Tickets go on sale this Friday (May 18).
