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
