In an interview statement, festival co-founder Murs described some of the acts performing.
“We’ve got performers on the bill ranging from young artists like Mac Miller who, despite taking the mainstream by storm, has chosen to stay independent to Paid Dues mainstay and arguably one of the best performers in the game Brother Ali,” Murs said. “We also have underground godfathers Juicy J and DJ Paul known to many around the globe as the Academy Award-winning group Three-6 Mafia. And finally after a couple years of pursuit I personally am extremely happy to welcome Christian rap phenom and flat out dope lyricist Lecrae.”
