Lauryn Hill, Snoop Dogg set for Rock the Bells

Artists to perform special sets on music fest's four-date tour

NEW YORK -- Lauryn Hill, A Tribe Called Quest, DJ Premiere and Snoop Dogg have been added to the lineup of this year's Rock the Bells festival.

A Tribe Called Quest will perform its platinum-selling album "Midnight Marauders" -- which reached a peak of No. 8 on the Billboard 200 in its entirety.

Hill's set was "prepared exclusively for Rock the Bells" and spans her entire career, including songs from the critically-acclaimed "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" as well as her work with the Fugees.
 
Snoop Dogg will perform his No. 1 debut album, "Doggystyle," in its entirety, while DJ Premier will appear as part of a special "Tribute to Gang Starr." In April, DJ Premier's Gang Starr partner, MC Guru, died of cancer.
 
These artists join Street Sweeper Social Club, Slick Rick, Wu-Tang Clan and more for the 2010 Rock the Bells festival.

The four-date tour stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Washington, DC in late August.
 
According to the official Rock the Bells website, more acts will be announced.
