Of course, being at the center of the action on all this Basel tomfoolery, Electric Pickle knows better than to just drop an average lineup. In fact, our sources at the venue say you can expect special events starting Wednesday, November 30, and running all the way until Sunday, December 4.
There are certain acts we can't reveal yet because they aren't confirmed. But here is the Electric Pickle's Art Basel week lineup so far.
Thursday, December 1. Portland duo and DFA artists YACHT will perform live along with special surprise guests. Last time the band visited Miami, it was November 2009 at the same venue in what was a sort of religious revival show meets corporate PowerPoint presentation. Yeah, it was awesome.
Friday, December 2. DJ-producers Wolf + Lamb are no stranger to the Pickle, and who can blame 'em? W+L plus an amazing Dynacord sound system ensure maximum dancing pleasure. On top of that, Boston's Soul Clap is also the bill. Talk about a party.
Saturday, December 3 Pickle's annual Fuck Art, Let's Dance party is something you don't want to miss. This year, Australia's Miami Horror and England's DJ Harvey are on the bill. Miami Horror has already graced the stage at LIV and, more recently, Bardot.
Still no word on ticket prices and more specific details, but we'll let you know as soon as we know.
