After getting Cypress Hill to open up for its free, Napster-sponsored “Back To Basics” tour, Limp Bizkit will repay the favor by appearing as the “surprise guest” at the rappers’ “Smoke Out 2000″ festival, set for October 7 in San Bernardino, California.
Zebrahead and hed (pe) have also just been added to the lineup for the third-annual “Smoke Out” show, which will include System Of A Down, Redman, Gang Starr, Pennywise, DJ Swamp, the Funky Tekno Tribe, and Dilated Peoples (see “Cypress Hill To ’Smoke Out’ With 311, Dead Prez” ).
Traditionally, the “surprise guest” takes the stage at 4:20 p.m., although organizers say that because of the large scale of Limp Bizkit’s planned pyrotechnic display, the band will actually perform closer to the end of the all-day show.
The “Smoke Out” concert is being co-sponsored by “Insider” magazine. For an up-to-date list of performers and ticket information, check out the festival’s
