The organizers of the 2012  Rock The Bells summer festival series have just announced some new additions to this year's stops on the traveling three city, 2-day hip-hop fest. These include DMX (left) and Eve who have now been added to the Bay Area stop, August 25 & 26 at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, and Slaughterhouse, French Montana + Red Café, Chief Keef, and Tinie Tempah all been added to the sole East Coast date at Holmdel New Jersey on September 1st & 2nd. Meanwhile for the opening festival tour dates, August 18th and 19th, at the San Bernardino NOS Events Center, the star-studded line-up will now include KRS-One, Xzibit, Hieroglyphics, El-P, Killer Mike, Kid Ink, Machine Gun Kelly, Casey Veggies, I Self Devine, Chief Keef, and Slim da Mobster. The long list of artists for this tour, see flyer down below,  also include such acts as Nas, Rza, Slick Rick, Salt N Pepa, Atmosphere, Mix Master Mike, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, Asap Rocky and Action Bronson.

The festival organizers also announced that there will be an entire additional stage for the San Bernardino dates only to be called the Guerilla Union Stage which is where such acts as the Hieros, Kid Ink, Machine Gun Kelly, and Xziibit will perform. I attended last year's Rock The Bells in Mountain View and one thing I learned was that it pays to plan ahead as to which acts on which of stages you want to see since it can be pretty overwhelming trying to figure out how to catch all of your favorite acts. Also allow for crowd surges in getting from stage to stage. Bookmark the following links for each stop on the Rock The Bells 2012 tour and buy tix here. Note that these lineup links may be updated as it gets closer to the festival dates.
