With Twin Shadow, Trinidad James, Purity Ring, and many more

The Overthrow Castle, Miami

Better Than: Getting stuck on the wrong side of the entrance ropes.

While most of Art Basel Miami Beach week involves outsiders swooping in with dollars and largesse, trying to show everyone how to party, Basel Castle is a true homegrown success.

The Overthrow crew's annual blowout started in 2010 as a (very, very fun) rough-around-the-edges affair, powered by warm beer and underground artists. Since then, the event's exploded, along with hype and demand.
