Rock The Bells Festival 2023: The Epic Star-Studded Lineup Is Here

After a successful sold-out event in 2022, the highly anticipated Rock The Bells Festival is set to return to Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY, on August 5, 2023. This year's festival is particularly special as it commemorates the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop.

The festival is curated by LL COOL J, the founder of Rock The Bells, and the Hip-Hop legend previously stressed the significance of the event.

"I feel like Hip-Hop is indispensable, and I feel like the same reverence and deference in the way Paul McCartney gets celebrated, the way Bob Dylan gets celebrated or Mick Jagger, I feel like these artists, these kings and queens, deserve that same treatment for this art form," he said.

The lineup for the 2023 festival has just been announced, and it's incredible. Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Ludacris, De La Soul, Slick Rick, Rakim, Yo-Yo, Redman + Method Man, Roxanne Shanté, Big Daddy Kane, MC Lyte, MC Sha-Rock, Boot Camp Clik, Swizz Beatz with special guests, Cold Crush Brothers, and Salt-N-Pepa are all slated to perform, with more artists to be announced.

The 2023 Rock The Bells Festival will kick off a week of live events, activations, and programming in honor of Hip-Hop's 50th anniversary. Last year it was a sell-out crowd, so grab your tickets at now.
