Chang Weisberg, Guerilla Union founder and CEO, adds: “Paid Dues Festival is truly a unique platform. It allows artists to elevate their talents and presence. Dom Kennedy, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Black Hippy – only a few years ago, these artists were opening acts here. Now, they are full-fledge, and well deserving, headliners. Not only that: Paid Dues embraces all types of Hip Hop – old school, new school, underground, mainstream – the common denominator here is that they all embody the independent spirit, struggle and successes. This year’s lineup is so diverse, yet completely cohesive. There is no other place where you can get Black Hippy, De La Soul, Immortal Technique, and Joey Badass all in one day.”

For the third year in a row, the festival will be teaming up with Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles in the PAID DUES HABITAT FOR HUMANITY PROJECT. Fans will have the opportunity to work alongside Murs, Paid Dues artists, Guerilla Union staff, and like-minded volunteers to build sustainable housing for a family in need. Volunteer space is “first come, first serve” and is limited, but fans are able to support the cause by donating a monetary, 100% tax-deductible contribution. More information will be announced shortly on the festival’s official website.
