On Saturday, December 3, 2022, the joint party Rakastella, hosted by Life and Death and Innervisions, will return to Miami’s scenic and historic Virginia Key Beach Park with yet another unique and diversified musical offering.
Rakastella has been known throughout the world as a pioneer in environmentally friendly musical experiences because of its four prior editions. It is a 15+ hour celebration that brings together a sophisticated selection of artists from various backgrounds. This year, the festival’s diversity and the necessity of creating a secure environment that is welcoming to all are both in the foreground. Rakastella will do away with VIP tickets to restore the original communal ethos of early dance music culture and make everyone on the dance floor equal.
The setting itself, Virginia Key Beach, with its picturesque beaches and panoramic views of the bay, is one of the things that makes Rakastella so unique. Environmental art will be tucked away among the tropical-covered forests that surround the sea in addition to the area’s unadulterated natural beauty.
This year, expect longer set periods so that performers may get comfortable and delve deeply into their sound. Headliners include AceMo and MoMA as AceMoMA, who have become modern-day heroes for their futuristic fusion of techno, footwork, and jungle. There will also be deeply emotive house from Dixon, visceral techno from TSHA, a mix of everything from Chicago house to Detroit techno through to trance and funk from DJ Boring, a special coming together of two greats with DJ Tennis b2b Seth Troxler, leftfield house from Peruvian producer, vocalist and DJ Sofia Kourtesis. Also a masterclass from unique Detroit legend Moodymann, electro from Jennifer Cardini, high energy selections from Or:la, Innervisions artist and incubator of underground movements Trikk, Haitian American DJ and activist Ashley Venom, Electric Pickle’s Will Renuart, 140 bpm expert Coffintexts and Japan’s deep house innovator Powder, plus revered selector Quest and Technicolour’s adventurous sound artist Yu Su.
