The legendary event returns to Miami Music Week as the weeks only beach party
On Friday, March 25th, Rapture Festival returns as the one and only daytime beach festival during this year’s Miami Music Week. This artful coming together of art, music, wellness and nature takes place on the stunning Virginia Key Beach Park with a world class line-up. There will be Miami exclusive sets from Monolink and Sabo & Goldcap, while Bedouin also play with more names to come, plus plenty of extra fun including water sports, mindfulness and an environmental workshop. Capacity for this life-enriching, soul-warming party are limited so get yours now from https://www.rapturefestivals.com.
Rapture Festival is making a triumphant return against all odds, which is sure to please fans who thought the much loved festival might never make a comeback after the pandemic. But once again this year it will bring together music, art and wellness with a real focus on environmental awareness and preservation. In previous years the festival has been widely praised by global media as a tasteful getaway during the madness of Miami Music Week and is famous for its warm, friendly atmosphere and cultured approach. It is also the only true beachfront music experience of the whole week amongst the usual selection of hot clubs and dark warehouses. To dance on the beach, though, takes you into a wholly different musical dimension.
This year once again Rapture will promote a healthy and spiritual lifestyle with yoga, healing, meditation therapy and more in a full Wellness centre with an environmental workshop plus drum circle and live performances. You can also look forward to an evocative mix of artists making live art and promoting multi-cultural and historical themes. Importantly, it all kicks off at midday right with access to the beach so is a perfect chance to get your swimwear on, try some paddle boarding and various other water sports as well as dance with the sand between your toes and frolic in the sea all afternoon as the music plays.
The truly unique location for this cultural gathering is Virginia Key Beach Park, a blissful nature reserve that was formed in 1896 at the same time as the state of Miami itself. It is a barrier island park with expansive wetlands, scenic beaches and sweeping views of the bay, all with the Atlantic breaking on the beach. Add in a sure to be special sunset that will add an extra scintillating atmosphere to the music and you have the best possible party at this year’s Miami Music week.
Proving the perfectly fitting soundtrack, German live-act, singer-songwriter and producer Monolink will play an exclusive show that will fuse ambient, electronica, techno and house into a mesmeric soundtrack on the beach. The artist is a master of his craft and his 2021 album Under Darkening Skies was the latest proof of that so expect to hear plenty from it. Then Bedouin will bring their famously shamanic desert house sounds, American duo Sabo & Goldcap are famed for their huge Desert Sunrise remix of Sting’s ‘Desert Rose’ and for their always much talked about and iconic sets at Desert Sunrise, which have been viewed online millions of times. Expect them to bring their always warm and tropical grooves with many more names to come.
Rapture Festival is a perfect escape and carefully considered tonic that will uplift and inform mind, body and spirit in these troubled times.
