There have been four previous editions of Rakastella and as a result, the festival has established itself on the world stage as a leader in eco-friendly musical experiences. It is a mindfully curated, 15+ hour party that unites a thoughtful lineup of artists with diverse backgrounds for all fans to enjoy. This year, once again, that diversity as well as the need to make the whole festival a safe space that is welcoming to one and all is in sharp focus. And here’s a unique take- Rakastella will abandon VIP tickets so that all dancers are equal as one on the dance floor thus bringing back the original community-minded spirit of early dance music culture. We’re so feeling that!
This year has some amazing stage hosts including the free-thinking and inclusive clubbing collective HE.SHE.THEY. It is a record label, fashion brand and event series for people of all races, genders and sexualities with a cutting-edge house and techno soundtrack. Also hosting will be Where Are My Keys?, a Miami born, boutique underground brand that hosts unique international events with world class sounds. Sounds like a fun time!
And can you wait to experience the sunrise? This is one of the most magical aspects of the festival and you’ll experience it alongside a set by Dixon. You won’t want to miss this unforgettable moment as sunrises are one of the best parts of life. The whole party often feels like it is building towards this magical moment- as the grooves build and atmospheres evolve, the sun appears and a big wave of energy washes over the crowd to unite them together. Simply stunning.
Of course, no festival is complete without an iconic location. Rakastella takes place at Virginia Key Beach which boasts scenic beaches and sweeping views of the bay which make for a unique backdrop. Next to the area’s raw natural beauty, environmental art will also be nestled amongst the tropical shaded groves that border the sea. Get your groove on!
You can look forward to extended set times this year so that artists have the chance to really settle in and go deep into their sound. Headliners include AceMo and MoMA aka AceMoMA, whose futuristic blend of techno, footwork, and jungle has made them modern day heroes. And add some 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, 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.
Rakastella has worked hard this year to bring you an improved experience from last year. They want you to have the BEST time so some improvements include an increased number of washrooms that will be continuously staffed for cleanliness, water refill stations to keep you hydrated as well as bars that, after 3 am by law, will have a curated virgin cocktail list, pressed juices, and fresh options that will allow you to go late but feel good. Add in an ever-richer array of local food and you have all the fuel you need to last until that transcending sunrise moment. Sounds like one phenomenal day!
Rakastella is an all-new kind of musical experience that nourishes the mind, body and soul. Make sure you are a part of the community by getting your ticket now at https://rakastella.com/.
