A fourth stop is planned for Miami, Fla., at the Bayfront Amphitheater. The specific date hasn’t been revealed yet but we can tell you that the fest will happen some time in December. An announcement on Rock The Bell’s website says that the event will be a special benefit show featuring artists from this year’s lineup and prior years with all proceeds donated to non-profit organization Hip Hop and Hope for Haiti.

Now that we’ve covered the dates, let’s get back to this year’s lineup. Hosted by RZA and Supernatural, the 2012 roster also includes J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco, Atmosphere, Ice Cube, Mac Miller, Dipset, Kendrick Lamar, Deltron 3030, The Hit Squad, Immortal Technique, 2 Chainz, E-40 & Too Short, DJ Quik, Naughty By Nature, Big Daddy Kane, Salt-N-Pepa, Slick Rick, Prodigy, DJ Lance Rock & Friends, Yelawolf and more.
