Rock the Bells Music Festival 2008


This Sunday July 20th, Rogers Picnic has some seriously stiff competition in the famous traveling summer Hip Hop all-star tour, Rock the Bells.

Rock the Bells music festival has grown into the premier hip hop festival in North America. Every year, since it's inception in 2003, the festival keeps growing into a stronger community, showcasing the best in new and old-school hip hop.

This year the most anticipated headliners on the tour are A Tribe Called Quest and West Coast troupe The Pharcyde, who re-united this year for the festival. This shows the caliber that this festival has to offer, when someone like Mos Def is not considered a headliner.

Last year Daft Punk made it worth going all the way up to Arrow Hall with the best concert of 2007. Expect no less this year with one of the most solid lineups I've ever seen. I mean, come on! Tribe Called Quest!? De La!? Nas!?

All I can say is that Guerilla Union is doing something right, and hope they keep on doing it.
