Rock The Bells Festival To Return In 2014


(AllHipHop News) Rock The Bells is coming back in 2014!

The festival was forced to cancel key dates in Washington DC and New Jersey/ New York.

Guerilla Union founder Chang Weisberg detailed what happened with the unfortunate cancellations in his opinion in an exclusive interview with VIBE.

“It wasn’t the cost of the holograms that killed Rock the Bells, or anything like that. The bigger reasons, the macro-version,” Weisberg said. “There were a lot of great shows that were out touring in our same time period; that could be a factor. The fact that Jay-Z was on sale, the fact that Kanye was on sale, the fact that Drake was on sale; there were just a lot of great hip-hop shows, and I wish all of them well. I think competition increases the market, and I’m happy that all these acts can be touring, and ultimately, maybe, that was one of the issues.”

But, he said that perhaps the festival took on too much this year.

Weisberg said, “Maybe the vision was too great.”

In the video below he makes the statement announcing that Rock The Bells would return in 2014.
