Murs had an unfortunate announcement to make today, revealing that the annual Paid Dues concert, which was started by the independent rapper, will be cancelled this year. 

As you may recall, Rock The Bells was forced to cancel some shows last year due to low ticket sales. Guerilla Union, the organizers of the festival, thus had a challenging year and it seems to have rippled over into their partnership with Paid Dues.

Murs posted a message on his Facebook which cites the financial issues of Guerilla Union as a reason:

First I’d like to thank all of you for your patience. This announcement has been a long time coming. I regretfully announce that Paid Dues will not happen this year. 2013 was financially challenging for my partners at Guerilla Union and as a direct result of these unfortunate circumstances we were not able to come together to give you another successful Paid Dues Festival. However, I am using this time to restructure my business in order to bring you Paid Dues for 2015. Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to celebrating Paid Dues 10 Year anniversary with you next spring. Stay tuned…. MURS

Murs promises a return in 2015 to celebrate Paid Dues' 10-year anniversary. Last year Paid Dues had a stellar line-up, with Black Hippy headlining.

If you're on the look out for other festivals to attend, we posted a list yesterday breaking down them down.
