They say good things come in threes, which certainly rings true for the Phase 5 lineup of Rakastella 2019. The fifth and final headliner announcement is composed of eclectic selectors who will be indulging the sandy shore of Virginia Key Beach in European style on Dec. 7.
The Art Basel event is a family affair as Life and Death captain and Rakastella co-creator DJ Tennis makes his return to the sixteen-hour soiree. Joining the Italian virtuoso is London staple and fabric favorite Call Super. With a decorated discography reminiscent of both Ricardo Villalobos and Brian Eno, the abstract visionary will be making his Rakastella debut.
Polishing off the trio is Hotflush signee Or:la, DJ Mag’s ‘Breakthrough DJ of the Year’ in 2017. The young talent embodies the UK bass scene and unhinged energy of a Berghain regular – a sure treat for party goers.
Already announced on the lineup are Âme live, Aurora Halal, Ben UFO, Danny Daze, Dixon, DJ Minx, Eclair Fifi, Jayda G, John Talabot, KiNK live, Marie Davidson, Mor Elian, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Öona Dahl, Palms Trax, Soul Clap, Tara Brooks and Will Renuart.
While festival lineups are typically female-deficient, Rakastella separates itself from the crowd with a wide array of talented female artists. The event is also emphasizing an environmental consciousness, as it seeks to eradicate its carbon footprint through beach clean ups and plastic-free planning. The socially responsible extravaganza will also feature a Hi-Fi Tea Lounge and VIP village.
With a killer lineup and a total immersion of the senses, this will be the party of Art Basel 2019. Get your tickets to Rakastella here.
