Concert organizers Guerilla Union announced Monday (June 4) the additions of DMX, Eve, Jadakiss, and Pusha-T to their upcoming Rock The Bells 2012 Festival Series line-up.
The former Ruff Ryders (DMX, Eve, and Jadakiss) will join a stacked line-up that also includes the likes of Kid Cudi, Nas, and Wiz Khalifa as headliners, alongside supporting acts A$AP Rocky, Atmosphere, Big Daddy Kane, a reunited Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and Common, among others.
Other acts added this week include: Wu-Block, Mix Master Mike, Pusha T and 2012 XXL Freshman Future.
DMX will play a headlining role at Rock The Bells this summer, performing songs from his six Billboard chart-topping albums. Joining him will be labelmates Eve and Jadakiss, slated to perform their own sets.
Wu-Block, the joint album featuring Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Jadakiss, Sheek Louch and Styles P, has been highly anticipated since the project’s reveal in 2011. With a release scheduled for later this year, they will grace the RTB stage to perform its music together for fans for the first time.
Mix Master Mike has a very rare performance lined up for Rock the Bells. He will also release the official ROCK THE BELLS mixtape this summer; more details coming soon. And, Pusha T and Future will make their first appearance at the festival this summer.
Previously announced artists J. Cole and 2 Chainz will join the line-up for the New Jersey stop, and Common for the San Bernardino stop.
“I am thrilled to announce all the great artist additions to ROCK THE BELLS. The variety of talent makes this line-up the most dynamic yet. There’s a nice combination of legendary and up-and-comings acts, and a majority of them are releasing new material as well. Plus, believe it or not, there is still more to be announced,” said Guerilla Union founder Chang Weisberg.
