I heard Nas and Dr. Dre and Snoop wou;d be there, although I would love to see The Beastie Boys there as well

If Dr. Dre and Snoop do end up on it and come thru the Bay Area it be cool because it would make up for me not being able to go to the Up In Smoke Tour.

I'm thinkin' its The RZA or NAS. They both have new albums coming out. I get to go to the line-up release press conference tomorrow and get to see some of the headliners perform at the release party to follow. I can't wait! The venue only holds around 50-100 people. I'm really hoping for Bobby Dig.

i'd love to see Erykah but can pass on Rock The Bells this year. I sure as shit don't want to go to Glen Helen and i wont be able to make it to San Fran again. I don't want to spend any more money on concert tickets until Tom Waits drops his dates.

If Dr.Dre is added im gonna be sad! how can i miss dre

At angel's stadium parking lot?!!! Are you (in my best gay voice) CEREAL?! Fuckin A! (no pun intended) I bet playing next to the giant A would be a lil wierd. I was born and raised in Anaheim, and I'm a fan of the artists mentioned. I woulda been beside myself!

"If I have to sit through a Snoop Dogg set I'm going to be really mad" - What if Dre is with him and they only play stuff off of The Chronic and Doggystyle? Not likely I know, but you'd be mad to "sit through" a snoop dogg set and not xzibit?

Indeed. The stage was literally right next to the big A. Pharcyde even came out for a few songs right before Tribe. It was only strange because it didnít seem like that many people were there, especially for such an epic occasion.

GUERILLA UNION NEWS UPDATE APRIL 22, 2008

GUERILLA UNION TEAMS WITH MYSPACE TO ANNOUNCE PERFORMERS AND ROUTING OF THE LEADING HIP-HOP FESTIVAL SERIES TODAY AT ALL-STAR PRESS CONFERENCE AND SECRET SHOW

2008 ROCK THE BELLS INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL SERIES POWERED BY SANDISK LINE-UP RELEASED

HEADLINERS INCLUDE A TRIBE CALLED QUEST, NAS, MOS DEF, DE LA SOUL, RAKIM AND
REUNITED SPECIAL GUESTS THE PHARCYDE
WITH ADDITIONAL PERFORMANCES BY SPANK ROCK, SANTOGOLD, KID SISTER, JAY ELECTRONICA AND MANY MORE!

ROCK THE BELLS has established itself as a world-class hip-hop platform by hosting legendary performances. The 2007 festival series included performances by a reunited Rage Against the Machine, the Wu Tang Clan, Public Enemy celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band and many more. The tradition of top names and memorable performances continues in 2008 as the line-up and routing for this year’s ROCK THE BELL 2008 INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL SERIES POWERED BY SANDISK--kicking off July 19 in Chicago--was announced today during a press conference in Claremont, CA by Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union and hip-hop all-stars A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Raekwon, Murs, and Supernatural who are all confirmed on this summer’s bill.

Featuring performances by A Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Mos Def, De La Soul, Rakim, Method Man & Redman, Raekwon & Ghostface (Cuban Linx), Immortal Technique, Dead Prez, Murs and Kidz In The Hall, the ROCK THE BELLS 2008 INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL SERIES POWERED BY SANDISK once again is marked by the leading hip-hop line-up seen on one bill this year. This year will be highlighted with an unexpected reunion of The Pharcyde. But it does not stop there, as fans will also see performances by the brightest names in the emerging electro-hip hop scene including Spank Rock, Santogold, Kid Sister, Wale, Flosstradamus, Jay Electronica and The Cool Kids with hosts B-Real of Cypress Hill and the world renowned Supernatural.

After its July 19 launch, ROCK THE BELLS 2008 INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL SERIES POWERED BY SANDISK will hit nine more North American cities on seven consecutive weekends, wrapping up in Vancouver at the end of August. 2008 also marks the first year that ROCK THE BELLS will go global with four stops in Europe and one in Japan. Highlights of the series include first time dates in Toronto, Vancouver and Philadelphia, plus a return to the Glen Helen Pavilion in San Bernardino, CA where last year’s show sold out with a capacity crowd of 45,000 people. Pre-sale tickets will be available May 14th - 16th via www.guerillaunion.com, and then to the general public on May 17th. Exclusive LA pre-sale starts on May 7th-9th with on-sale to follow May 10th.

Most of this year’s headliners will be performing with new music as well; performers with albums coming out this year include Q-tip from A Tribe Called Quest with The Renaissance, Nas with Nigg*r, Mos Def with The Ecstactic, and Murs with his major-label debut Murs For President. Method Man & Redman return with Blackout 2, the follow-up disc to their 1999 platinum selling album Blackout!, and Ghostface Killah will join Wu Tang Clan bandmate Raekwon to perform songs from Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, Raekwon’s highly anticipated follow up to the critically acclaimed 1995 release Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.

Event organizer Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union is thrilled with the direction on this year’s festival series stating: “This year’s line-up represents, respects and recognizes the diversity and inspirational possibilities often promised, but rarely delivered in a live hip-hop experience. We really feel that this year’s group of artists define our platform and further galvanize the legacy that Rock The Bells has earned through the years. Guerilla Union constantly strives to curate shows that house those once-in-a-lifetime performance experiences that our fans have come to expect. I am thrilled that the majority of performers on this year’s bill have new music to showcase, and we have still managed to deliver all the qualities of Rock The Bells that our fans demand year after year. There’s always something fresh and familiar about our line-ups. Fortunately, we have a knack for making Hip Hop dreams come true. And this year is going to be no different.”

“We are very enthusiastic about partnering with Myspace.com (a place for Hip Hop) to announce this year’s line-up to an audience of 70,000,000 people,” adds Weisberg. “Traditionally, we have launched our shows via print and radio, but this year we will tap into the muscle of Myspace.com to help expose our platform to an unprecedented global audience. Our shows provide a visceral and aural backdrop to the legions of dedicated fans. Fortunately, the live experience can never be duplicated or downloaded, but the memories and experiences continue to live digitally on our cameras, mobile phones and Myspace pages. Viral outlets have become our fans’ method of choice when spreading the word on the Hip Hop lifestyle and community. What better way to launch our event than by capturing that audience globally via MySpace.”

In addition, Guerilla Union has announced that SanDisk has renewed its partnership with Rock The Bells to introduce mobile flash memory to their community and SanDisk as a title sponsor to our festival series. “Micro SD technology can help change the music industry,” says Weisberg. “We are proud to work with SanDisk and develop better ways to empower artists and the fans who enjoy their music. Rock The Bells will host SanDisk’s “Wake Up Your Phone” campaign. We are constantly amazed at how flash memory improves the functionality of everyone’s cell phone. Our fans are on top of their “tech game” and we believe that this partnership will improve the live experience in general by incorporating these new technologies into the fan experience. Our festivals are uniquely powered by SanDisk and we thank them for all of their support.”

Guerilla Union’s ROCK THE BELLS 2008 INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL SERIES POWERED BY SANDISK, has established itself as a world-class hip-hop platform by hosting legendary performances by Rage Against the Machine, NAS, A Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, Lauryn Hill, Blackstar (Talib Kweli and Mos Def), Hieroglyphics, Living Legends, De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, Cypress Hill and Jurassic 5 as well as reuniting Wu-Tang for their last performance with ODB in 2004. In 2007 it was the top-grossing hip-hop event in the country.

A friend got me the VIP deal for a birthday gift. I didn't go into the area until later in the evening and it was very brief...'bout the only cool thing 'bout the package was seperate entry which was a breeze and the backpack other than that...if it was my money I wouldn't have spent it on that biz...

The shirt you get in the back pack are the flaw'd and they were out of posters when I went to pick-up my goods.

I liked the parking lot because I was from outta town and it was nice to see a concert in SF. It was really convenient and the city backdrop was cool. I would go to the SF show again if they changed up the sound system, to bad its at shoreline.

Dates have changed a bit. Most of the artists on the poster have asterisks next to their names meaning they're not playing every show on the tour. Check the Rock the Bells MySpace blog for artists performing at each stop.

A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Pharcyde, Mos Def, Rakim, etc...I'll definitely hit Jones Beach.

So you got stuck with lawn or something? Ummmm, first off this isnt last year where it was gona be at NOS so all tickets were GA. Then it got moved to Glen Helen so all tickets had to stay the same. What did you expect?

i've never gone to rock the bells before. does that mean that only certain artists play each show? is there any show where all the artists play? (and i can't myspace at work or i'd just check that)

most of the top half names play at every show. the second tier acts usually change depending on the venue. at least thats how it was last year

you guys are all nuts! i don't know what you guys have against glen helen (did you guys get stuck with lawn tickets or something?)... and you bitch about shoreline too? please tell me what RTB venue is better than those two! (parking lot? fuck that! street scene sucked balls for the same reason)

i wouldn't go this year because the lineup's weak compared to last year (and overpriced), but i snuck into the GA pit last year and the sound was awesome and it was a great view... (and grass seats are great at every other concert i've ever gone to at glen helen; hip-hop just doesn't work that far away though)


*edit: ooh, the gorge, now THAT's a venue for a RTB show!

To be honest the sound was not bad, the vibes where chill as fuck(better than the RAGE year), and it was a surprise to see it was damn near sold out. I was looking for this thread, but could not find it sunday.

Where were you at? Which acts did you like? I was in the pit up front for hours and was sick of the entire event but stayed to see The Pharcyde come on. In retrospect where I was standing probably was not a good spot considering how the speakers were all concentrated on the sides and the two inner racks were pointed toward the artists on stage.

Sushov23
08-13-2008, 12:01 AM
I was in the lawn, but it sounded great. I liked MURS, Immortal Tech, Meth and Redman, ATCQ all stood out. Mos Def was prob my fav though. He was on some other shit compared to last year's subpar set. Nas was cool also.

I went to this in Chicago and Tribe fuckin killed it. Nas was really good too which I was kinda surprised about. I felt bad for Mos Def though cause he was good but they put him on right after Meth and Red and nothing really seems the same after them.
