Basel Castle 2013 returns to Miami’s Grand Central Park, December 7th
If you’re anything like us, you’ll agree the perfect way to get Christmas cheer going early is by heading south to the beaches of Miami. Year after year, art glitterati and cool kids from across the globe descend on the city’s Wynwood art district for Art Basel, one of the world’s premier art showcases.
Surprisingly, one of the week’s most anticipated events has become Basel Castle. The no-holds-bar music extravaganza is going in on its fourth year and like fine wine, has only gotten better with age. Year after year, the event has cemented itself as a can’t-miss on everyone’s calendar, especially for beat-lovers like us. The talent Basel Castle has pulled in previous editions has been nothing short of amazing – we’re talking Oliver, Pharrell Williams, Brenmar, Nick Catchdubs and more.
Basel Castle is kicking things up a notch with everything we love hitting us from all directions. On the electronic side, event organizers enlisted none other than the always versatile SBTRKT and some of France’s finest in Brodinski and Gesaffelstein (who’s recent debut album, Aleph we’re still bugging out over). Joined by the likes of Heroes x Villains, Been Trill, DJ Niko Javan and Damaged Goods, the night is a no brainer for any dance fan in the know. You’ll even get a heavy dose of hip-hop on the side with performances by Chance the Rapper and Kanye West and T.I. signee, Travi$ Scott.
The fun doesn’t stop there. In the spirit of Art Basel, you can even get your culture on with visual installations from artists Greg Mike, L’amour Supreme, Jeremyville, Nychos and more. Along with this are pop ups from some of our favorite brands, ranging from the awesome to the so-weird-it-has-to-be-awesome (Mishka, Karmaloop, ST.ART Initiative and… Spongebob Squarepants). With booze for the 21+ crowd and food truck galore at the ready, the night seems like a no-brainer for anyone hitting up Art Basel Miami.
It’s all going down at Grand Central Park on December 7th, and sure makes for one hell of a reason to book a flight down to sunny Florida if you’re not there already. Make sure to scoop up some tickets here for you and your friends – with an insane capacity of up to 8,000, you don’t want to be the person who missed out on this kickass party.
