The twilight of the summer festival circuit is fast approaching, and hip-hop's foray into all the sweaty, sometimes expensive action --

Rock the Bells

-- is just a few days away. As always, the lineup for this year's festivities spans across all sides of the genre, and

Guerilla Union

is offering up a schedule of performers varied enough for anyone to find something enjoyable to see at any time of the day. You could be hyped up to see

Dipset

, and are currently sorting out your collection of variously colored bandanas and American flags to accessorize your outfit with. You might want to just get stoned and stagger to

Bone Thugs

,

Method Man

,

Redman

, and

Kid Cudi

. Perhaps you just want to indulge in your

KDAY

reveries with

Xzibit

,

DJ Quik

, and

Ice Cube

or pretend like you're listening to a live

Power 106

broadcast with

Wiz Khalifa

,

J Cole

,

E-40

and

Too Short

. Maybe you want to dig deep down into the poet's lounge lyricism with

KRS-One

, or get gully and take your ears to the street with

Wu Block

Or, you could just be in attendance to enjoy the swansong of the summer festival season and will end up bouncing between booths, places where they sell food and alcohol, and the areas where you hear "Rack City," and "O.P.P." All of that aside, there's at least five acts you shouldn't allow yourself to miss out on, regardless of where you may end up this weekend, and that is why we have compiled this list.
