I am planning on going to Rock The Bells in San Bernardino this year (my 1st time going) and I have a few questions
How is the crowd at RTB? Are they full of pretentious backpackers who think they're better than everyone? Are they mostly chill people? ect
How is the NOS Event Center as a venue?
Bone Thugs are doing E. 1999 Eternal in its entirety. Damn.
Out of the whole lineup, some people are more excited for Missy Elliot than the majority of the others? Garbage.
For RtB I'm most excited about Timbaland, Nas, Slick Rick, Salt-N-Pepa, Immortal Technique, E-40 & Too Short.
I'd like to catch the Kid Cudi, Lupe Fiasco, Method Man and Redman, Deltron 3030, Zion I, and Bone Thugs sets if I can.

Little to no grass, always hot with limited shaded areas, gets dirty early in the day, and because of its setup it is crowded almost everywhere. I am sure GU chooses not to use San Manuel Amphitheater to save money and maybe to avoid the minor hassle of fans having to travel to the middle of nowhere. Despite those two points, I do whatever I can to avoid that shit hole. I may stand alone.
In regards to the crowd, it is a nice mix. Not many pretentious people but a great set of stoners who come in all shapes and sizes. I've seen several fights break out so definitely not a Coachella vibe.
I saw a Bone Thugs show a few years ago. I was excited to see them, but most of them ended up lip synching. It was a big disappointment. I don't understand this being called a reunion since these guys have played at college parties, SXSW 2010 Fader Fort, and various Austin dates all the time for the past few years.
I've had great times at Nas, Ice Cube, and Method Man and Redman shows though. They will definitely deliver.
The most interesting to me is Deltron 3030. One of my favorite albums and Del has only performed "Virus" when I have seen him solo.
Deltron 3030 with Dan the Automator and kid koala?? That's gonna be crazy.

No more Missy? Wut the hell happened?
200 dollar price tag, no ASAP Rocky, Common, Missy Elliott, or Naughty By Nature makes it a pass. Now I have to hope Deltron 3030 decides to come down to SD around the same time.
Did they take Missy and Timbaland off the lineup? WTF?
They aren't on any of the poster for the 3 stops. My guess is they announced before they had them confirmed. They could still end up performing. Still heated about no Common or ASAP rocky for San Bernardino though.
Ha, that's somewhat relieving.
Also, Creepin on Ah Come Up > E. 1999 Eternal
So SoCal doesn't get ice Cube and Missy drops out. Suck my whole dick GU. Why would they go 2 days whej they couldnt sell out one?

Has RTB at shoreline ever sold out quicky?
Wow man this is just too expensive. And why 2 days? I shudder at having to go back too Nos Events twice in two days,if they are smart they will allow single day ticks.
Paul is dead
I was really into this lineup with Missy, now ill pass...I think only adding Outkast would make up for it...but then I hope they don't because I would rather have Kast at Coachella...
Does this usually sell out quickly
No, they usually still have tickets at the door...
Theyve added pusha t, dmx and eve and a few others but now it appears bone thugs are off the ill as well?
Anyone know if tickets are selling quickly or being close to sold out?
