Zamnia Tulum Art Basel Miami 2022

7 Art Basel Miami Events You Need to Check Out in 2022

What is Art Basel Miami? Art Basel is an international art fair staged annually in Basel, Switzerland, as well as in Hong Kong, Paris, and Miami. The convention and event itself offer leading galleries from five continents showing significant works by masters of modern and contemporary art.

In natural Miami fashion, the city comes together to offer one of the most unique and spectacular cultural gatherings in the world. In addition to one-of-a-kind art, musicians and promoters flock in to curate equally exclusive, one-off parties with rare lineups and performances you wouldn’t see anywhere else.

Check out our list of can’t-miss Art Basel Miami events below:

December 1-3: Zamna Festival Miami ft. The Chemical Brothers, Diplo, Camelphat + More

VENUE: Island Gardens

Acclaimed Tulum-based festival, Zamna, is making its Art Basel debut with an exclusive lineup of events and artists from December 1-3. 

Hosted in Miami Island Gardens, the series will be headlined by dance icons The Chemical Brothers (Dec. 1), dance and radio superstar Diplo (Dec. 2), internationally acclaimed Ukrainian duo ARTBAT alongside UK house sensations CAMELPHAT (Dec. 3), plus more.

Zamna has garnered a reputation as one of the most authentic and unique Tulum party experiences. It is known for bringing world-class DJs to the heart of the jungle in the paradise-like Mexican Caribbean, where nature, free spirit, and cutting-edge production technology all coexist. Zamna is acclaimed for its incredible design and music stages that are works of art. Expect them to bring the same magic to Miami’s top art week this December.

VENUE: Factory Town

One of the craziest parties in international danceland, Elrow, returns to Art Basel with a topical lineup and a new theme…Delusionville.

Hosted in the urban and industrial maze that is Factory Town, 2022’s Elrow is a live reinterpretation of the famous POPaganda art movement from the mind of “art phenom,” Ron English. This year’s art aesthetic will fuse English’s most radical, satirical, and humorous art with a modern art gallery unparalleled even during Basel week.

As far as the lineup, Elrow is headlined by international dance icon BLOND:ISH, mainstay Dombresky, as well as rising talent Cloonee. The event will also feature a special guest set from Elrow regular Paco Osuna.

From Grammy nominations to Ibiza prominence to Drake collaborations, Black Coffee has been one of the most prominent names in dance music on an international level.

December 2: Masquerade 2 ft. Claptone, Vintage Culture, Lee Foss +More

VENUE: Space Park Pop Up

Claptone’s Masquerade pop-up party will be held at Space Park Miami during Basel week and will feature some of the hottest techno artists. Events hosted at Space Park are the perfect blend of an adult playground mixed with trippy designs, disco balls, magic school buses, and groovy art designs which are fitting for a party like this. 

Headlining the event is Vintage Culture, one of the hottest international DJ acts out of Brazil. Recently clocking in at No. 11 on DJ Mag’s annual DJ rankings, this will be one of the more clamored-for sets of the week — one of the two chances to catch him if you miss his headlining gig at Space earlier in the week.


December 2: AFTERLIFE MIAMI 2022 ft. Tale of Us, Cassian + More
