With February creeping right around the corner, it means that it’s that time of the year where heads celebrate Dilla’s life, music and legacy. Except, instead of holding Dilla Day weekend in Detroit as they’ve done for so many years, Ma Dukes and company have decided to bring the event to warmer climates: Miami, Florida.
Taking place Feb. 5th through the 8th, the event will feature a line-up which includes Joey Bada$$, Pete Rock, Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Madlib, Black Milk, ESTA, Camp Lo, local Miami artists and more.
A limited run of early bird tickets are now available for $66, which gets you access to all Dilla Day Weekend events and concerts (note some concerts are 21+).
In addition to performances, there will be producer panels, BBQs, artist meet and greets, and other Dilla-related events. “Dilla’s music is timeless and lives in all of us,” explains Ma Dukes. “I expect Miami to become the icon of event holders for the Dilla legacy, and raise the bar for events globally.”
Head here to cop your tickets, with two different packages to choose from.
