Ultimate HipHop Event
California Hip hops golden era
What kind of oldies concert draws a huge audience in its 20s? Rock the Bells, the daylong hip-hop festival. This is an annual hip hop festival that originally took place in Southern California only, but has since toured throughout the world. There’s a defensive tone to Rock the Bells, an annual festival since 2004: an implication that 21st-century hip-hop has taken a wrong turn into thuggishness, simple-mindedness, formula and triviality. There is also a promise that its clean-cut young audiences can reclaim authenticity and acquire some historical bona fides. This venue features all the old school hip hop artists and tours all around the United States.
