Rock the Bells will mark its 10th anniversary with some very special guests: The traveling hip-hop festival will take a page from Coachella's Tupac hologram last year and feature "virtual performances" from the late Ol' Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E. According to Pitchfork, the former N.W.A. rapper will "perform" alongside Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, while Ol' Dirty Bastard will be joined by his former group the Wu-Tang Clan, who have reconvened for a new album planned for a July release.
