For those that have been long waiting for Murs‘ imprint of festivals to make a return, STOP. In fact, stop looking forward to it making its way back to Los Angeles.
“Move on; that was the past,” Murs said in an IG interview with The China Show. “If you were waiting for Rock the Bells to come back but didnt go to Paid Dues, then you’re missing out. You’re missing out on supporting these things…”
The first Paid Dues festival started in 2006 which took place at the Shrine Expo Center, with about 5K heads showing up in attendance to see folks like Aesop Rock, Living Legends, Felt, 2MEX, El-P, and more. After the success of the following year’s festival – Murs (in association with Guerilla Union) decided to take the festival on tour for a couple of years, hitting cities like New York, Denver, Chicago, Baltimore, – and also going north up to Berkeley and San Francisco, and more.
