The History of the Paid Dues Festival

Paid Dues is an annual hip hop festival that took place in California, until the summer of 2007 it was announced that the festival travel to multiple locations.

On March 11th, 2006 the first Paid Dues festival sold out, with over 5,000 concert goers packing the Shrine Expo Center in Los Angeles. The line-up for the Paid Dues 2006 Festival included the debut live performance from Felt (Murs {Living Legends} w/ Slug & Ant {Atmosphere})

Paid Dues Tour 2007
Following the success of the second annual PAID DUES festival in Southern California promoters MURS 3:16 in association with Guerilla Union (Rock The Bells, Cypress Hill’s Smokeout) have announced they will tour.

“The national touring of PAID DUES is a dream come true. It’s what I had in mind when I first brought the idea to Guerilla Union–something like a Warped tour for underground hip-hop, where my friends and I could be outside in the daylight enjoying summer with our fans instead of cramped up in some dark smelly nightclub worried about staying up too late and being too tired for work the next morning,” states MURS. “It also provides a safe and comfortable environment in which the younger fans can be introduced to a proper live hip-hop show.”

PAID DUES hit over 10 major markets across the country.It will pass through various sized venues ranging from 1,000 to 40,000 capacities. In New York (July 28 and 29) and Los Angeles (August 11), PAID DUES will merge with the Rock The Bells festivals featuring headliners Rage Against The Machine and the Wu-Tang Clan.
