Rock The Bells 2013 | Lineup Addition Announcement

Rock The Bells 2013 hosted their 2nd annual New York press conference and launch party, last night, at the Highland Ballroom. This year’s festival series is sponsored by Boost Mobile and Guerilla Union,andcelebrates the 10-year anniversary of Rock The Bells! The president of Guerilla Union, Chang Weisberg, helped release a new list of artists that have been added to the festival’s lineup. When it was noted that the festival has started a trend of including electronic dance music artists to the hip-hop festival’s line-up, Weisberg explained that, “It’s important to acknowledge the bridge being gapped between hip hop and EDM. They’re no longer two exclusive genres and we’re starting to see major overlap between both styles, especially in areas like LA, NYC, and DMV. Hip-hop is not one dimensional, it’s actually more diverse than it’s ever been, and I’m glad that we’re able to showcase and celebrate the many different sub-styles of the genre.”
