This year’s Rock The Bells music festival marks its 10th anniversary with a huge lineup, including “virtual performances” by two deceased artists, Ol’ Dirty Bastard from the Wu-Tang Clan and Eazy-E, who will be performing with the ongoing reunion of Bone Thugs N Harmony.

The MC Supernatural actually freestyled the all-star lineup during an announcement party earlier this evening. In full, here’s what the lineup looks like:

I’ll be skipping any concerts that involve holograms of dead rappers – stay home and listen to the stuff or go out and see a real show

I’ve gone to RTB each year in the bay, but there’s just nothing new and “inspiring” on here. The holograms don’t do anything for me.

RTB used to make me go “OH DAMN! They got WU, Pharcyde, Deltron 3030, Lauryn, _________.” Fill in the blank on any rare or special artist. Outside of J5 (who’s already been announced for Outside Lands, not sure if they’ll be at the bay show) I’ve seen, and paid a lot of money, to see almost all of those acts, AT Rock The Bells.

Seriously thinking of doing OSL instead of RTB this year, which is almost shocking for me to think.
