In recent years, fans have celebrated the legacy of late great producer J Dilla.
In the past, folks have celebrated her by holding a tribute concert in Jay Dee’s hometown of Detroit. Later this week, however, folks will celebrate Dilla Day festivities in a much warmer climate.
Miami, FL will be buzzing February 5-8 with Dilla’s mother, Ma Dukes will host the celebration at various venues in Miami.
The Stage, Bardot and LMNT will be moving and shaking with appearances from Pete Rock, Madlib, Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Black Milk, ESTA, and Camp Lo.
According to reps, Mobb Deep, Dead Prez, Statik Selektah, Chuck Strangers (Pro Era), Termanology, and Starro are confirmed to perform.
Concerts are the attraction, but surely not the only show in town. Producer panels, BBQs, artist meet and greets and other Dilla-related events will go down. “Dilla’s music is timeless and lives in all of us,” said Ma Dukes in a released statement.
“I expect Miami to become the icon of event holders for the Dilla legacy, and raise the bar for events globally.”
Tickets are available for $80. The price gains access to all Dilla Day weekend events and concerts.
