The organizers of Paid Dues Independent Hip Hop Festival have announced the first performers for 2013.

Rapper Murs and fellow promoters Guerilla Union have revealed that the partial lineup will include Kendrick Lamar's crew Black Hippy, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Dom Kennedy, Tech N9ne, Immortal Technique, De La Soul, Hopsin, Joey Bada$$ and Grouch & Eligh.

"Paid Dues Festival is truly a unique platform," explains Guerilla Union founder and CEO Chang Weisberg. "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.

"This year's lineup is so diverse, yet completely cohesive," Weisberg continues. "There is no other place where you can get Black Hippy, De La Soul, Immortal Technique, and Joey Bada$$ all in one day."

The eight annual Paid Dues takes place March 30, 2013 at the NOS Event Center in San Bernardino, Calif. Pre-sale tickets are available until tomorrow (Dec. 21) at 10PM PT. General tickets go on sale on December 22nd at 10AM PT.
