    Default Rock the Bells X 2013

    10th anniversary. September 2013. Who do you think will be on the bill this year?

    My guess would be Rage Against the Machine, Wu-Tang Clan, A Tribe Called Quest, and Outkast

    I'd be shocked if Outkast's reunion "tour" was with Rock the Bells...

    Rage is over due for a few shows or a tour. Wu-Tang is kicking off a 36 Chamber anniversary tour. Outcast reunion is 2014 I would think they want their own tour and stage.

    Immortal Technique

    Wu-Tang is a no brainer. Eminem would be cool. He hasn't been a part of RTB before, but GU has made friends with Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf. He could be that new marquee name, but not command as high a price tag as a Jay-Z.

    I'll be there as per usual.

RTB unannounced dates.

    I sure hope RTB continues with the "tour" as small as it may be. In terms of Guerilla Union and the fests they do (Smokeout, Paid Dues, RTB) RTB is the "biggest/most important," but their others have seen success as one day destination festivals. I'd hate to see GU focus all their energy on a big one date festival for their big anniversary show.

    Ill also throw out my NWA "theory" with Cube, Dre, Ren, Yella and Snoop in the Eazy E spot as an appropriate headliner.

    Would you mind elaborating on this a bit more. I'd heard/read similar things, but could never find anything more concrete evidence in my research. Is he involved in the business side similar to the way WU/GZA is? I don't even know what he does for them, but he's either performed, hosted, curated that 36 Chambers stage. Whats Nas doing on the business side for GU?

    And a bunch of new garbage and several typical Rock The Bells throw away acts. The best part about this lineup is that it doesn't have Sage Francis.

    Overall, this lineup sucks.

    So just like Coachella, no big headliners. They did mention Coachella a couple of times in the broadcast.

    this is pretty bad...there are some great names on there, but for the 10th Rock the Bells, this is very disappointing...the hologram bullshit is the worse...that shit got old as soon as weekend 1 was over in 2012...i'll pass on this...I was really expecting something special...

    Hopefully they can just beam the holograms into my house and I won't have to go at all.

    I'm sure they'll say something like I've heard before about how they don't believe in treating anniversaries as special, I get it, you can't book an awesome lineup and you need an excuse.

    I've gone to RTB each year in the bay, but there's just nothing new and "inspiring" on here. The holograms don't do anything for me.

    RTB used to make me go "OH DAMN! They got WU, Pharcyde, Deltron 3030, Lauryn, _________." Fill in the blank on any rare or special artist. Outside of J5 (who's already been announced for Outside Lands, not sure if they'll be at the bay show) I've seen, and paid a lot of money, to see almost all of those acts, AT Rock The Bells.

    Seriously thinking of doing OSL instead of RTB this year, which is almost shocking for me to think.

    Saw this post on their Facebook. Luckily we have an abundance of extra RTB and Paid Dues tickets at my work otherwise there's no way I would pay for this rehash of hip-hop. However if you didn't go to Coachella or OSL or Paid Dues then I guess it's pretty good.
    Friday: Outkast, The Replacements, Girl Talk, Chromeo, AFI, The Afghan Whigs, Bastille, Jagwar Ma, Grouplove, Caravan Palace
    Saturday: Muse, QOTSA, Pharrell, Foster the People, Empire of the Sun, Kid Cudi, Sleigh Bells, Cage the Elephant, CHVRCHES, Capitol Cities, Temples, Bombay Bicycle Club, Holy Ghost!, Bear Hands
    Sunday: Arcade Fire, Beck, Neutral Milk Hotel, Trombone Shorty, Frank Turner, Surfer Blood, J Roddy Walston

    The line-up is pretty mediocre if you've been attending RTB the past few years. I'm excited to see who they might add later though...

    According to the pre-show announcement, there are at least “fifteen more artists announced before the show,” some being announced on June 24th in New York City.
    ps Mos Def is playing in Central Park for free on 6/24 so maybe he'll join Talib for Black Star?
