Hip-Hop.com is Live at Rock the Bells 2012 in Shoreline

Welcome to Mountain View, California, where it’s nice and sunny and not too hot (thankfully), which will be the home, as it was last year, of Rock the Bells. And this year, it will be the biggest ever, with 35 acts covering two stages over two days with headliners J. Cole, Kid Cudi, and Nas. This year, we at Hip-Hop.com are going up our game as well, as we’ll be covering both stages with pictures and reviews posted as fast as we can get them up. Wanna come down and check it out live in person? The lawn is sold out but limited tickets are still available.

Welcome to Mountain View, California, where it’s nice and sunny and not too hot (thankfully), which will be the home, as it was last year, of Rock the Bells. And this year, it will be the biggest ever, with 35 acts covering two stages over two days with headliners J. Cole, Kid Cudi, and Nas. This year, we at Hip-Hop.com are going up our game as well, as we’ll be covering both stages with pictures and reviews posted as fast as we can get them up.

Wanna come down and check it out live in person? The lawn is sold out but limited tickets are still available. Check Ticketmaster for ticket availability and get yours before you get the door, there’s no counting what’s left when you get to the box office.

Otherwise if you can’t make it, back today here early and often. Keep an eye on our dedicated page for Rock The Bells here, where all of our posts this weekend will be posted under. We’ll also be on Twitter, at @hip_hopdotcom, and our Facebook page with live updates and pictures.
