In 2004, Guerilla Union, now one of Americas leading urban lifestyle brands created Rock the Bells, a Southern California based hip-hop festival. The first festival included performances by DJ Abel, Redman and the Wu-Tang Clan and was an immense hit, leading it to branch out from its SoCal roots to other cities around the country including LA, DC and of course NYC.
The two-day festival, taking place this year on October 4 and October 5 will feature well known and renowned artists such as Juicy J, Chief Keef, the A$AP Mob, Kid Cudi, J Cole, Wale, the Wu-Tang Clan, Tyler the Creator and Mimosa as well as original virtual performances by Ol’ Dirty Bastard (one of the founders of the Wu-Tang Clan who died shortly after the first Rock the Bells festival) and Eazy-E (a deceased rapper known as the “Godfather of Gangsta Rap”). The event will be hosted by radio personality Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97 and Californian rapper Murs of the Living Legends.
This year will be the tenth anniversary of the Rock the Bells festival. Since its inception in 2004, it has grown exponentially and garnered a lot of attention and love and has created a “world class hip hop platform” in which artists, both old and new, illustrious and budding can showcase their talent to hoards of avid fans and celebrate one of the greatest genres of all time.
