MIAMI: Art Basel Party Roundup

International, Music and Nightlife

This event has ended.

Yes, Art Basel Miami Beach is about the exhibits, but it’s also about the parties. It’s art by day, dance by night, and we’ve got the lowdown on where to be and when.

5th-9th December

Art Basel 2018

Miami’s mega-club is hosting a five-day-long mega-party, with a different line-up every night. Don’t miss Richie Hawtin on Thursday and The Martinez Brothers and Peggy Gou on Sunday. Saturday’s Solomun show is sold out already (no small feat for such a huge venue), but you can still get in with an all access pass, which includes all the shows at Space, Floyd Miami and The Ground.

Friday 7th December

Floyd Miami
Studio Barnhus
Located inside Space, Floyd is a more intimate venue for speakeasy-style parties. Make sure you catch Axel Boman and Kornél Kovács as part of the Studio Barnhus showcase.

The Ground
Ninja Tune Art Basel

11pm onwards
UK label Ninja Tune have a presence at Art Basel Miami Beach for the first time; drop by their showcase by III Points at The Ground.

Delano Beach Club
Rumors Art Basel
It’s the holy trinity: Guy Gerber, Lauren Lane and Kaz James. See you on the dance floor!

You Had To Be There
Now this sounds like our kind of party. No phones allowed, it’s all about unplugging and enjoying the music.

Saturday 8th December

Virginia Key Beach Park
This one is going to be huge. Rakastella returns to its historic venue with 14 hours of house and techno from DJ Harvey, Seth Troxler and Virgil Abloh. Yes!

Delano Beach Club
Another great day party: start early, finish early with Bob Moses, Lee Burridge and Bedouin.

Sunday 9th December

Secret Venue
Where Are My Keys
We love the sound of this party for a) the name, and b) the fact it starts at 7am. One for the early birds!
