Touring hip-hop festival Rock the Bells announced its roster of talent scheduled to hit the stage this summer. The list strikes the right balance with a blend of old-school favorites like Ice Cube, Naughty By Nature, and Salt-N-Pepa and next-generation performers like Tyga, Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa and Yelawolf.
The most interesting addition for this year is probably DJ Lance Rock and Friends from the Nick Jr. show “Yo Gabba Gabba!” (You know, for all the 3-year-olds in attendance.)
Festival stops include the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, Calif. on Aug. 18 and 19, Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, Calif. on Aug. 25 and 26, and PNC Bank Arts Center in Homdel, N.J. on Sept. 1 and 2. Tickets go on sale May 19.
