12 hours, 3 stages & a diverse line-up was on the MENU for a day in the Cali sunshine for : WU TANG CLAN – ODD FUTURE – MAC MILLER – LIVING LEGENDS – DIPSET – BROTHER ALI – DJ QUIK – PSYCHO REALM – HIEROGLYPHICS – DILATED PEOPLES & dozens more!
PSYCHO REALM says it’s become a Hip Hop tradition, “PAID DUES in a continuation of a growing independent movement in Hip Hop Festivals, from SMOOKEOUT to ROCK THE BELLS, it’s become an industry OUTSIDE the mainstream!” BROTHER ALI seconds the emotion, “Creativity undiluted by corporate forces, in a beautiful outdoor setting, is a recipe for a great experience.” With a focus on innovators, rather than followers, PAID DUES was a dazzling display of unbridled passion & lyrical skills in a variety of different styles.
PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS that have taken INDIE to a worldwide level, stating “that’s the only way to do it these days, as besides a small handful of acts, the majors don’t support talent or offer ANY artist development these days.” MAC MILLER who hit #1 on the BILLBOARD Charts this year simply put it, “I see NO advantage of giving up all my rights, control & ownership of my music, when we are growing our business organically & successfully!”
The INDIE SPIRIT is ALIVE &GROWING! PAY YOUR DUES!
