Few parties can claim to be as integral to the fabric of clubland as Damian Lazarus’ iconic 24 hour wonderland, Get Lost Miami. A universal pillar of rave, the event has evolved into Miami’s ultimate celebration of the diversity of the global electronic music scene and a session fit only for the world’s most hardcore party people. This year the Get Lost circus is coming back to town to celebrate its 15th anniversary with 70+ artists spread across the entirety of the newly famed Factory Town footprint in Hialeah.
The Get Lost Experience has morphed tenfold since its inception, unfolding from a backlot after hours into a fully immersive festival experience defined by marathon raving and exploration on the outer edges of the dancefloor. Made up of the spirits of those willing to dig in for the long haul, it’s a ritual for the fully initiated and a twisted circus for the highest clergy of rave.
Get Lost’s fifteenth year celebration welcomes seventy-plus electronic music pioneers and flag bearers of the moment, commencing with a very special 5am Detroit meeting of the minds from Seth Troxler and Carl Craig. The set follows a legendary B2B from the multi-generational Motor City pair up last November at the city’s revered TV Bar.
The event continues this legacy of creating unmissable moments with a three-hour set from the inimitable Groove Jet legend Danny Tengaglia, and back-to-back from Nicole Moudabler and Sama Abhulhadi, repeating the magic from their recent debut together at Space Miami. Major Lazer Sound System will bring an iconic set to the show celebrating the global takeover of South Africa’s Ampiano sound.
As a fitting tribute to the early days of Get Lost and Crosstown, Art Department will play a very special reunion performance, reuniting Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow. Meanwhile, the mysterious Amalgamation Sound System will deconstruct and take control for six hours, featuring one of the UK underground house scenes’ most beloved protagonists, a real DJ’s DJ, the great Johnny Rock.
Knee Deep in Sound leader Hot Since 82 makes his return to Get Lost, alongside fitting mystics from nomadic storyteller & DJ, Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque du Soleil. Turbo Records-label head Tiga will also join the fold, while unstoppable duo Bedouin continue their reign alongside Pachanga Boys’ Rebelledo, Detroit legend Carl Craig, and fellow Motor City star DJ Holographic.
The Desert Hearts crew, represented by co-founders Mikey Lion, Marbs, Lee Reynold, and Porky, will provide a crew set on the heels of their own 10-year anniversary, joined by recent collaborator and once-again U.S. resident, Kevin Knapp. Ellum Audio boss and DJ Maceo Plex will be right at home in Miami, joined by Parisians fashion icons Salomé Le Chat and Chloé Caillet.
Fresh off the Wizardry trio closing set at Day Zero Tulum, DJ Tennis and DJ Three are also set to join Get Lost in 2022. GRAMMY-Nominees TOKiMONSTA and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs will take center stage at the party, in addition to Crosstown Rebels alumni and label regulars like Tel Aviv-export Magit Cacoon, Francesca Lombardo, Serge Devant, and Yulia Niko.
Visionquest trio of Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss, and Shaun Reeves are also set to embark on their legendary sonic pilgrimage, joined by modern disco icons Soul Clap.
As ever, Lazarus invites to Miami some lesser known names destined for stardom on the horizon like Tibi Dabo, Christina Lazic, Amemé, Senzala and Yulia Niko. Such is par for the course for Damian, considering his propensity for discovering new talent, A&R’ing debuts and breakthroughs on Crosstown over the years from Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, Art Department and many more.
Of course it remains the A list assemblage of unannounced special guests and big surprises that put the final touches on one of Miami’s most magical parties of the year.
“Given our experience of hosting Miami’s wildest marathon parties week after week at Club Space, Space Park and the III Points festival, we feel we are the perfect collaborators to work alongside Crosstown Rebels. Get Lost promises to be a legendary party and the biggest takeover of Miami to date.”— The Space Invaders Crew
Following the success of Day Zero Tulum’s ten year celebration in early January, Get Lost returns fifteen years young to offer yet another multifaceted trip for the senses, gathering around its scion only the purest of endurance party people from around the globe.
