UPDATE: Rock The Bells Founder Says Eazy-E & ODB Will Not Appear As Holograms

Hip-hop heads rejoice. The annual Rock The Bells festival has arrived. This year, it will be taking over four cities—San Bernardino, Calif., Mountain View, Calif., Washington D.C., Rutherfold, N.J.—and will bring a slew of surprises for its ten-year anniversary.

After seeing the late Tupac Shakur resurrected through a hologram, many fans are waiting to see their favorites come back to life. Rock The Bells have deemed two “Original Virtual Performances” by Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E. That should be sight to see.

Here’s the current lineup below. More artists are expected to be announced.



  • September 7-8 in San Bernardino, Calif.
  • September 14-15 in Mountain View, Calif.
  • September 28-29 in Washington, D.C.
  • October 4-5 in Rutherford, N.J.

UPDATE: Rock The Bells founder Chang Weisberg explains exactly what fans are expected. Contrary to former headlines, Rock The Bells will not have hologram performances by ODB and Eazy.

“It’s an original virtual performance, not a hologram. I never used the word hologram. There are a number of multimedia visual effects that will be applied that will definitely at the very least make the performances look like a hologram. People’s minds will be blown.”
