Now in its ninth year, the Sadler's Wells hip-hop festival celebrates the range of hip-hop dance, from international headline acts to local crews, from onstage dazzle to freestyle sessions in the foyers.

The line-up includes world b-boy champions Vagabonds Crew with a work influenced by the film Alien. French-Korean duo Clash 66 explore love and madness. Each member of US company ILL-Abilities has a different disability, which they use to create a unique acrobatic style in No Limits, performed with a live DJ.

Sadler's Wells also offers female crew Boadicea (led by Rhimes Lecointe), locking world champion Gemini and the youth companies of Blue Boy Entertainment and ZooNation, plus graffiti workshops, beatboxing demonstrations and more. On tour, local crews join the headline acts.
