Guerilla Union recently announced the official line-up to this year’s Rock the Bells festival. And while some artists come at no surprise (Wu-Tang Clan, Black Hippy, Immortal Technique, Tech N9ne, etc), a shocker came as it was revealed that there will be “original virtual performances” by both Ol’ Dirty and Eazy-E. More holograms? According to founder Chang Weisberg, the answer is no…
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.
Whatever the case may be, we’ll just have to wait and see on September 7-8 when the festival kick starts in San Bernardino, CA. Check the other cities/dates here and hit the jump for the full list of expected performers.
The rest of the Wu will be hitting the stage during Wu-Block’s set at the New Jersey stop of Rock the Bells this weekend. Slaughterhouse, Big Sean, French Montana, Red Cafe and Tine Tempah are also set to exclusively hit the East Coast shows. Tickets are still available for both days and can be purchased here.

Enter your full, real name and legit email in the c-section down below where applicable (not in the comment itself, unless you want some random spam bot flooding your inbox for the next 50-11 years), and write “#RockTheBells” as your comment
and I’ll pick two persons out of the mix who has done both as the winners. It’s not that hard, right? Tri-State Area residents/those who plan on being in New Jersey at the day of the show enter only.
