Rock the Bells

As opposed to a stationary festival, Rock the Bells is what one might deem a traveling festival. Hitting over 10 cities (including three in Canada) Rock the Bells has been something of a musical institution since it got its start in 2003. Rock the Bells is famous for its focus in hip hop culture and music, featuring such notable acts such as Mos Def, Lauryn Hill, Hieroglyphics, Busta Rymes, Redman and Jurassic 5. Rock the Bells is both an indoor and outdoors festival containing historic performances by some of today’s most promising hip hop acts, as well as rows of vendor booths, multimedia attractions, and even surprise performances.
