Rock The Bells 2011 Festival Line Up Announced – Black Star, Lauryn Hill, Nas, Raekwon & Ghostface, Erykah Badu & more

Rock The Bells has announced their official 2011 line-up and it is looking all sort of fresh! All I have to day is: BLACK STAR!  This year’s festival will head to four major North American markets. Kicking off in the Los Angeles-area on August 20 at the San Manuel Amphitheater, ROCK THE BELLS will then head to San Francisco on August 27 at Shoreline Amphitheatre. The festival moves to the east coast for a show in New York on September 3 at Governor’s Island (co-promoted with Bowery Presents, Highline, Mad Dog Presents) before wrapping in Boston on September 10.
