Illadelph remains the longest continually run Hip Hop festival dedicated to the evolution of Hip Hop music and dance, featuring the most electrifying innovators and pioneers of Hip Hop movement.

Celebrating over 12 consecutive years, the 2011 - "Illadelph Miami" Legends Festival (Illadelph) will take place July 31 – August 7, 2011 in the state-of-the-art facilities at Miami Light Project 404 NW 26th St Miami, FL 33127 & South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center 10950 SW 211th Street Cutler Bay, Fl 33189 with a full schedule of master classes, lecture demonstrations, open jam sessions, panel discussions, and break-out sessions from 9am-5pm daily.

The 2011 festival is set to be one of Illadelph’s finest and bring together some of the most influential and inspirational instructors from around the world to teach and mentor festival participants ranging from students to professionals. These originators and renowned practitioners of the various hip-hop movement styles will be teaching; Boogaloo, Locking, Popping, Hip Hop, House, B-Boy/B-Girl, Afro/Funk and Salsa Movement.

Illadelph’s newly appointed Artistic Director Emilio "Buddah Stretch" Austin, worked with Rennie Harris to bring in some of the finest pioneers from the international Hip Hop dance scene this past year, such as; Eva “Deva” Schou from Denmark, who taught Waacking, popping sensation “Acky” and House Dance International champion “Hiro” joined us from Japan along with France’s Michel “Meech” Onomo and Gemini Lockiano a new school Locker with an old school flavor. We were honored to welcome this year one of the original GoGo brothers, O.G. Skeeter Rabbit, along with 2nd generation GoGo Brother, Manny “Loose Caboose” Tristan.

Returning instructors to the festival included; Hip Hop choreographer and dancer Lanaya “Tweety” Straker, Tyrone “The Bone” Proctor, Waacking sensation, as well as one of his protégé’s, Aus “Ninja” Imperial, a master of Waacking and old school Locker Jazzy J.

The festival opens up a platform to artists, nationally and internationally, who can expand and challenge boundaries and definitions of Hip Hop overall. As Illadelph’s international reach grows, it provides an opportunity for participants to share ideas/work with a larger universal community.

By honoring and preserving the work of Hip Hop’s pioneers and supporting the creativity of the culture’s next generation, Illadelph creates a unique platform for Hip Hop’s past, present, and future to inspire one another and establish connections and change that
will last well beyond this week-long experience.
