PLUS ADDITIONAL FESTIVAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

Festival organizers Guerilla Union have announced the third and final artist additions to the ROCK THE BELLS 2013 FESTIVAL SERIES line-up. The festival will feature an exclusive performance from up-and-coming Harlem supergroup A$AP MOB featuring A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Ant, A$AP Twelvy, and A$AP Nast (All Markets). Artists also added to the line-up include JOEY BADA$$ with PRO ERA (All Markets), TRINIDAD JAMES (Los Angeles, San Francisco), LOGIC (Washington DC, New York), ACTION BRONSON (Just added to Los Angeles, San Francisco), STALLEY (All Markets), YOUNG DIRTY BASTARD (All Markets), and THE INTERNET (All Markets). These additions join previously announced artists KID CUDI, BLACK HIPPY, J. COLE, WU-TANG CLAN, and many more.

Rock The Bells is pleased to announce the availability of single day tickets. Chang Weisberg, Guerilla Union president and Rock The Bells founder, explains, “As we’ve grown into a two-day festival, we’ve learned a lot. Unfortunately, not all our fans have the ability to attend both days. Due to overwhelming demand, we are providing a single day ticket for those who still want to experience Rock The Bells, but can’t commit to both days.” For fans who are deciding which day to attend, the performance breakout by day has also been released for all markets and is now available at http://www.rockthebells.net/line-up.

The original virtual performances of legendary and iconic artists Eazy-E of NWA and Ol’ Dirty Bastard of Wu-Tang Clan are fully endorsed by their respective estates and family members. Weisberg states, “Despite initial reports of problems with rights clearances, I’m very pleased to announce that the estates are both 100% on board. Furthermore, not only are the families on board with the virtual performances, they are actually participating with the creation of them. This ensures the authenticity and integrity of the performances. It’s a monumental moment for music and technology that Eazy’s and ODB’s children have lent their DNA to these historic performances. Their bodies, faces, and voices have been captured to help recreate their fathers’ avatars. The process has been extremely rewarding to say the least. Seeing family members honoring their fathers in such a unique way has been incredible to witness. Watching Tomica Wright [Eazy-E’s widow] share her most intimate perspective to make sure every detail is authentic and accurate has been a blessing. I almost cried watching Young Dirty Bastard channeling his father’s uncanny stage charisma. It was pure magic. I cannot wait for the family members to see all their hard work. It will truly be historic.”

Guerilla Union is pleased to be part of the dream team helping to bring these legendary performances to life. Festival partners PLAY GIG-IT and AV CONCEPTS will collaborate to bring to life original virtual performances by Eazy-E and Ol’ Dirty Bastard. PLAY GIG-IT, the largest music game in history, will focus on the live performance animation, an area the company is extremely proficient in having already created over seventy avatars for their recently launched Facebook gaming platform. The nation’s leader in holographic effects technology, AV CONCEPTS, will converge creativity and technology to execute the technical design of the holographic-appearing performances. The only company in the world experienced in creating outdoor holographic projections in uncontrolled environments, AV Concepts’ veteran creative team will also collaborate on the creative content, bringing their in-depth expertise and advanced filming processes in producing three-dimensional, life-size illusions.

Rock The Bells is launching a national sweepstakes to give one winner in every market the chance to attend the exclusive soundcheck for the virtual performances of both Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E. In addition to this unique experience, winners will also be rewarded with a pair of two-day tickets and hotel accommodations for the weekend.

IES - THE INDIE ENTERTAINMENT SUMMIT INDUCTS N.W.A, EAZY-E, 2PAC, NATE DOGG, BONE THUGS, CYPRESS HILL, DJ QUIK & CHUCK D IN THE 2013 IES HIP HOP HONORS

Email: info@IESfest.com
Website: http://www.IESfest.com

In a world of rapidly changing world, increasingly shaped by the internet, the music & entertainment business more than most have been going through a major upheaval and transition. Hence the need for serious members of the creative community (artists, writers, producers, managers, labels, video & film makers) to have more access to learn from those leading the way at the cutting edge of this evolving landscape. Here to deliver greatly on that need is an exciting and fast growing event in L.A., the entertainment capital of the world. IES – the INDIE ENTERTAINMENT SUMMIT, the 5 day industry conference & festival returns to the NoHo Arts District (in the North Hollywood area, just north of UNIVERSAL STUDIOS) in August for a highly acclaimed worldwide event. With a seismic shift away from ‘old school record labels & movie/TV studios’ to a more independent & entrepreneurial world, involving the internet & new technology, IES brings the leaders of the worlds of music, movies / TV, DJs, internet & technology together.
With more cutting edge CEOs & leaders in the entertainment, media & tech industries than any other, the IES conference features over 80 in-depth industry seminars, workshops, panels & keynotes from over 100 industry leaders. In addition IES has many industry mixers & networking events, including the famed IES DEAL LINK where attendees are able to meet 1-on-1 with industry decision makers, investors & talent scouts. An annual highlight of the near week long IES extravaganza are the IES HONORS, where industry trailblazers are inducted and honored.
Last year’s IES firmly established the brand as an event with a clearly defined mission, to bring talent & industry together to help the creative community build their businesses and grow jobs and revenues by spurring business growth. Last year’s event honored & inducted members of Guns ‘n Roses, Pink Floyd, Megadeth, Poison, Skid Row, The Alkaholiks, hip hop legends Tech N9ne, Spice 1 & Chino XL, & a special induction to the Hendrix family for the iconic musician Jim Hendrix. A special IES session called a ‘Case Study Of a Success Story’, studies the formation of iconic albums, bands & labels; which last year explored the 60+ million selling album ‘Appetite For Destruction’ by L.A. based group Guns ‘n Roses, & reunited band members, original managers, engineers, video makers & those that were a part of this historic album and breakthrough group. Providing education, access to hard to reach industry connections, valuable resources, and a vibrant exchange of ideas and synergies, IES stands apart in a marketplace of conferences that are either old and outdated, or veer too far to the tech side, that focuses too much on the ‘future crystal ball predicting’ and goes over the head of most of the artists & creative community. This year’s IES HONORS features some of the biggest & most influential icons of their type, including Diane Warren receiving the first ever IES SONGWRITER HONOR. Warren is one of the most successful songwriters in history, with over 300 Billboard chart hits. She is so prolific, at one point, 7 of the highly regarded Top 10 were her compositions! She has written hits for the likes of Beyonce, Brittney Spears, Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera, Aerosmith, Celine Dion, LeAnn Rimes, Snoop Lion, Enrique Iglesias, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, Akon, Jesse J, Emile Sande, Paloma Faith, Jennifer Hudson, Keyshia Cole & hundreds more. In addition Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame member Chuck D, leader of the group Public Enemy, will receive the IES TRAILBLAZER honor for his groundbreaking work in music, distribution, broadcasting & creation of indie oriented platforms for artists to own & control their creations & businesses. IES ROCK HONORS this year go to Ozzy Osbourne & his late great guitarist Randy Rhoads (with tributes to Randy by such legendary musicians as Zakk Wylde, John 5, Rudy Sarzo, Jake E. Lee & many more), The Who (with a special tribute by legendary Who producer (‘My Generation’, ‘I Can’t Explain’) Shel Talmy), Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Motley Crue, Slash, Motorhead & Blink-182.
For the 2013 IES HIP HOP HONORS, this year’s inductees include the legendary group N.W.A (including Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren, DJ Yella), Eazy-E, 2Pac, Nate Dogg, Bone Thugs ‘n Harmony, DJ Quik, Cypress Hill, Warren G & legendary execs Violet Brown & Chang Weisberg (Rock The Bells, Paid Dues & Smokeout festivals / tours). A special tribute & honor will be held for the iconic label PRIORITY (N.W.A, Ice Cube, Jay-Z, Master P, Mack 10, WC) & a ‘Case Study Of A Success Story’ of the landmark N.W.A album “STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON”.
Created & founded by the founder of the INDIEPOWER network, Jay Warsinske & his new partner Scott Page (of new media/tech fame) the INDIE ENTERTAINMENT SUMMIT brings the world of entertainment & technology to the famed NoHo Arts District for a cutting edge conference by day, & every night a series of exciting concerts, film screenings & showcases along the ‘creative corridor’ along the Metro subway route. This famed route starts in NoHo, and continues stops & events at Universal Studios Citywalk, Hollywood & Highland, Hollywood & Vine, Silverlake & the Downtown Arts District. Future plans include the expansion across L.A. to the Westside, following the expanded subway route. Aiming to pump valuable revenues into SoCal, while providing the worldwide creative community with an annual summit & exchange of ideas, knowledge, collaborations and networking, IES is being hailed as ‘the right thing, in the right place, at the right time’ by industry execs and attendees, who last year came in from over 20 countries & all regions of the country. Legendary music industry executive Violet Brown exclaims “IES is 5 days of incredible speakers & top leaders of the industry freely giving serious knowledge, trade secrets & tons of opportunities; with an incredible energy of super positive & committed people!” Artist manager & new media expert Steve Eggleston remarked “I predict in 5 years or less, the INDIE ENTERTAINMENT SUMMIT will be to the entertainment world, what the SUNDANCE is to the film world, a revolutionary event on such an explosive scale.” Kevin Black, ex-President of WARNER BROTHERS RECORDS Urban says “If you’re not at IES, you aren’t going to live to be a competitive artist these days, it feeds your mind, your soul & teaches you which way to go.” Discmakers exec Sydney Allston exclaims, “IES is the best entertainment conference I’ve ever attended, it is a must attend event for all those serious about their careers.” Lady Gaga / Madonna / Beyonce producer Peter Rafelson, whose father created iconic TV Shows like ‘THE MONKEES & films like ‘EASY RIDER’, states, “the overwhelming sense of good will & great energy at IES has made a lasting impression on me, a new community is on the rise & I am grateful to participate in the future growth of IES.” Legendary Founder of the longest running tour in America, the WARPED TOUR’s Kevin Lyman says “You should check out IES, this is an annual event that we’ll all be going to for many years to come!” Finally, multi-platinum artist manager Steve Lobell exclaims, “If you’re not at IES, you’re not in the business. Period!”
