A staple of the underground and champion of the avant garde, Damian Lazarus’ Get Lost Miami serves as a playground for those in pursuit of full sensory immersion. A 24-hour long journey in sound, Get Lost tests the limits of even the most hardcore party people and challenges the ever commercialized Miami Music Week programming. On March 25th 2023, Get Lost will return to Factory Town in Hialeah to host 90+ artists spread across seven stages, creating a mad circus experience in celebration of 20 years of Lazarus’ seminal Crosstown Rebels label.
Celebrating the peculiar and unusual, the fully immersive Get Lost Experience provides the ultimate marathon for those brave enough to explore the outer fringes of electronic music. Get Lost will welcome ninety-plus electronic music tastemakers, forward-thinking selectors, and live acts for 24 hours of alluring sonic mystery, curated by founder and Crosstown Rebels head Damian Lazarus.
Get Lost 2023 will open the twenty-year anniversary season of Lazarus’ groundbreaking Crosstown Rebels imprint, a fitting celebration for one of contemporary house and techno’s most important outfits. The shapeshifting nature shared by Damian and the label boils down to a relentless passion for new sounds and scenes, and a dedication to underground music that has seen Crosstown remain ever-relevant through countless cycles and fads of club culture.
Over the last 20 years, Lazarus has remained on the forefront of debuting breakthrough artists and emerging sounds via Crosstown Rebels, A&Ring electronic music’s brightest stars such as Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, and Art Department in the label’s early tenure. Events have always stood at the center of the Crosstown mission, with Get Lost evolving into a globally touring party entity, the ahead of its time Rebel Rave series, and of course Day Zero which originated and continues to lead the Tulum party scene by example.
Commencing at 12pm, Get Lost will open with a mystifying 4-hour set from Lazarus, DJ Tennis, and DJ Three, the revered Wizardry trio, and close the following day with a 4-hour set from the legendary DJ Harvey.
As a fitting celebration of Crosstown Rebels 20th anniversary, Get Lost will host a legendary set from Crosstown Rebels Allstars, composed of Damian Lazarus, Seth Troxler, and Art Department ft Kenny Glasgow & Ali Love.
Get Lost’s stacked billing are fellow Detroit icons Carl Craig and DJ Holographic, Grammy-nominee Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, desert house duo Bedouin, NYC house champion Danny Tenaglia, rising Dutch duo ANOTR, international club sensation A-Trak, and one of dance music’s most influential tastemakers Pete Tong.
Amapiano flag bearers Amemé and Major League DJz will take center stage at Get Lost, as the South African sound continues to dominate the globe. Champions of the genre Major Lazer Soundsystem will join Major League DJZ for a rhythmic b2b set showcasing the subsect’s infectious groove.
The Desert Hearts crew, represented by co-founders Mikey Lion, Marbs, Lee Reynold, and Porky, will make their Get Lost return, joined by fellow Get Lost alumni Dennis Cruz, Serge Devant, Harry Romero, Yulia Niko, Francesca Lombardo, Goldcap, and Layla Benitez.
The lineup continues with mystifying live performances from the illusive Oceanvs Orientalis and alternative electronic duo Pale Blue, whose highly anticipated debut album will be released on Crosstown later in the year.
In line with Lazarus’s propensity for supporting the avant garde, he has invited an array of rising underground stars to Miami including Parisian icon Chloé Caillet, Turkish-Italian DJ Carlita, Brooklyn-based Tomas Station and O.bee, Tel Aviv-based DJs and producers Adam Ten and Mita Gami, Crosstown newcomer Airrica, and Miami’s very own Danny Daze.
This year Get Lost welcomes Obama’s personal DJ D-Nice, Soul in the Horn Queen, and Natasha Diggs to an exclusive stage for ‘XXtra Lost,’ ticket holders, hosting the sounds of soul, funk & disco. In true circus fashion, Lazarus will of course have some unannounced special guests and surprises in store.
