    2012 Rock The Bells International Festival Series Press Release

    Boost Mobile and Guerilla Union have recently unveiled the latest artist additions to the previously announced lineup of ROCK THE BELLS 2012 FESTIVAL SERIES powered by BlackBerry. Joining the all-star roster are DMX, Eve, Jadakiss, Wu-Block, Mix Master Mike, Pusha T & Future. For the complete lineup per market, visit www.rockthebells.net.

    Four-time Platinum selling artist 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 label-mates 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. Wu-Block is scheduled to release later this year and ROCK THE BELLS will be the first major platform for fans to see the album performed live by the Wu-Tang Clan and D-Block members. Mix Master Mike has a very rare performance lined up for Rock the Bells. The Beastie Boys’ DJ and contributor will also release the official ROCK THE BELLS mixtape this summer; more details coming soon. 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 lineup for the New Jersey stop, and Common for the San Bernardino stop. Guerilla Union founder Chang Weisberg shares his excitement: “I am thrilled to announce all the great artist additions to ROCK THE BELLS. The variety of talent makes this lineup 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.”
