For the first time in Sunset Strip Music Festival History Hip Hop got its own stage for both days of the festival. Murs was selected as curator thus calling it the Murs316 stage in recognition of his imprint Murs316, an indie label he recently started to give artists a bigger platform and jump start their careers. In hand picking the artists for his stage Murs chose a diverse group of artists covering different regions and genres within hip hop culture. I think it was dope for hip hop as a whole for the old school and new school to be be showcased on 1 stage giving fans and artists a greater sense of the culture and how far the music reaches. The artists who performed on the Murs316 stage are as follows: DJ Quik, Bun B, Onyx, Killer Mike, Zion I, P.O.S., Riff Raff, ill camille, MOD Sun, Pterodactyl Jones (Noa James & Curtiss King), N.O.R.E., Ces Cru, TayF3rd, Toni Monroe, IAMSU!, Ryck Jane, DJ La La, Brittney Dorn aka Love Bomb, Cold 187um of Above The Law, RA the Rugged Man, Lock Smith, David Blake II, Joey Fatts & A$ton Matthews, Philly Blunts & Speak.
