Rakastella Finalizes 2019 Lineup With DJ Tennis, Call Super, and Or:la

After a prolonged campaign of announcements and seemingly last-minute gets, Rakastella has put the finishing touches on its stacked lineup.

As speculated, festival cocreator DJ Tennis — who also cofounded the record label Life and Death — will, in fact, play a set at the 16-hour party Saturday, December 7. Electronic artists Call Super and Or:la have also joined the gathering, which will take place in Virginia Key Beach Park. The trio joins last month's lineup additions: Motor City Drum Ensemble, Danny Daze, and Eclair Fifi were added alongside amenities such as a Hi-Fi Tea Garden, curated by Miami's own Terrestrial Funk, as well as a VIP village offering massages and hors d'oeuvres. Previously announced acts include Ben UFO, Soul Clap, Dixon, and Marie Davidson.

The addition of Or:la marks yet another female act on a bill that's notably packed with women, including Jayda G, DJ Minx, Öona Dahl, and Aurora Halal.

Rakastella has also announced its 2019 edition will emphasize environmentally friendly sustainability initiatives. Single-use plastics will be banned, and according to a media release, "a fleet of volunteers" will patrol for litter throughout the night and conduct a beach cleanup immediately after the festival ends.
