Getting Lost in Factory Town for 24 Hours at Miami Music Week 2023
Damian Lazarus and Crosstown Rebels pulled off the ultimate Miami Music Week circus-themed after party, Get Lost.
Miami Music Week is not only about Ultra Music Festival. The weeklong marathon of events has a dizzying lineup of pool parties and nightclubs that could trip up even the most seasoned ravers.
From day into night, the parties simply never stop. To close out a typically massive 2023 Miami Music Week, Damian Lazarus brought back his ultimate "after, after, after" party with the return of Get Lost at Factory Town.
This intimate, 24-hour event pulls ravers away from the more commercialized action of South Beach to experience an underground warehouse carnival of delights in the district of Hialeah.
Spanning over seven stages with more than 90 artists, the final marathon celebrates the city's rich nightlife culture with its many alluring, underground-inspired onsite delights to explore.
Discovering the maze of Get Lost's exhibits and artists on the last day of Miami Music Week creates a unique vibe and camaraderie for the electronic music industry's professionals, artists and fans alike, all of whom converge to revel in the thrill of getting lost on the dancefloor— and never looking back.
The rules for the unique event were shared with crystal clear intent: for attendees to experience something new.
