Paid Dues, the music festival known for featuring the best hyped acts in hip-hop, has unveiled another stacked lineup. Black Hippy will headline the event’s 2013 iteration, performing alongside Joey Badass and Hopsin, among other acts soon to be revealed. Those unfamiliar with the moniker “Black Hippy” will probably recognize the ensemble’s members: Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock. The supergroup, which boasts several of the most critically lauded talents of 2012, and the rest of the Paid Dues performers will take to the NOS Events Center stage in San Bernardino, CA, on March 30 (at 12pm, to be precise).

The seventh annual Paid Dues Festival has much to live up, and add, to. Previous acts have included Atmosphere, Wu Tang Clan, Odd Future, and Aesop Rock (one time, Asher Roth also performed, but we won’t hold that anomalous misstep against them). The very first PDF sold out, hosted the debut performance of Felt (another collective: comprised of Murs from Living Legends and Slug and Ant from Atmosphere), and started a tradition of packing concert halls and attracting the year’s top rhythmic wordsmiths. We have all the info you’ll need to prepare for Paid Dues Festival 2013: the date, the lineup, and a little history for those looking to impress their fellow festival-goers – or at least the ones who care about that sort of thing. Most importantly, we’ve included a list of discount ticket links, so be sure to keep scrolling below!
