The Fader and Ciroc lit up Miami in December for our fourth annual Art Basel party, Boom Basel. Over 2,000 people rolled through and it was, without a doubt, one of the most talked about parties of the day.

This year, we posted up in a beautiful spacious abandoned factory located in Wynwood with eager fans waiting to see our featured artists. Cey Adams’ live art performance was definitely a highlight of the evening. I mean, it wouldn’t be Art Basel without art being created live on site, right? Cey Adams hand selected a group of some of the most innovative artistic minds of today to fill the space with stunning visual art.

Virgil Abloh and Flying Lotus got the crowd moving with their high energy DJ sets. The crowd bounced as Virgil Abloh played an electric 90 min set of dance music and trap bangers. To maintain the energy, Flying Lotus followed with a set of classic and future funk. The two DJs were the perfect pair to set the mood for the night. Everyone showed up and showed out for our celebration of art and music making this the best Boom Basel to date.
