Making Love at Rakastella


Here at Godzilla Disco, we all love to love. We love music, love artists, love supporting one another. This weekend, on December 9, the love child of two essential record labels – Innervisions and Life and Death – is born: Rakastella.

Rakastella a Finnish word for ‘make love’; this event aims to be a marriage of art, dance, nature and of course, music. Taking over the picturesque white sand beaches of Virginia Key Beach Park in Miami as part of the annual Art Basel celebrations, Rakastella will deliver 12 hours of blissful melodies, deep grooves and an untouchable energy – curated by some of the world’s finest selectors, as thousands of dancers come together to celebrate the one thing we can never get enough of: love.

On the bill are over twenty performers, including Innervisions boss Dixon, Ame || Ame, who will grace North American decks for the very first time, Life and Death boss DJ Tennis, the magical and mysterious DJ Koze, the mind behind the Maeve imprint, Mano Le Tough, and many, many more. A number of Floridian visual artists will also be on site, from the expressive visuals of Rob Goldman & Co to the abstract installations of Monica Leslie Travis. Both record labels will be bringing treasure boxes full of merchandise, so you too can bring a little piece of Rakastella home with you after the night draws to a close.


Tickets are purchased, dancing shoes are tied and sunglasses are on. With one day to go, there really is just one question left to ask: How will you make love at Rakastella?
