Looks like some of our fave stars are gearing up for exclusive concerts and festivals this year which is always a great way to spend your cash during the Summer. For those who like the lavish lifestyle you can head out to the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland where you can see one of the best femcees to ever bless the mic take the stage for the first time in a while, Miss Lauryn Hill. Also taking the stage in the European town will be Black Eyed Peas, Mos Def, Lil Brother and Raphael Saadiq plus many more from July 3-18.
If you would rather stay close to home, Rock the Bells continues to provide a serious line up of Hip-Hop heavyweights. This year at the various dates scattered through the US you can expect to see artists such as The Roots, Big Boi, Common, Nas and Damien Marley, Reflection Eternal, Slum Village, RZA, Raekwon…that line up right there is a Hip-Hop heads perfect fantasy and there is a whole lot more artists lined up. Dates for the Rock the Bells are yet to be announced but if you live in the following cities you should have a smile on your face, NY, Boston, Denver, LA, Chi-Town, Miami, Toronto, Vancouver, DC and San Fran.
