As well as the day is dedicated to art itself during Miami's Art Basel week, the night brings some of the best music sets, celebrations and previews that – in true Miami style – run late into the morning. From Peggy Gou's intimate set, a Grammy winner's paintings on display in Wynwood, influencer heaven at Nylon House, Offset's performance during the D'usse celebration and more, here's what all the biggest celebrities they did this year in 305.

Offset at D'usse's Art Basel celebration

Offset brought a medley of hits to Miami during G-d's celebration on Eden Roc Beach. The Migos member introduced himself Adjust it tracks like “Worth It” and chart-topping hits like “Bad and Boujee” in front of a crowd that included Rich The Kid, Leon Bridges and Chance The Rapper, who was in full swing. The cognac brand is developing a reputation for playing Art Basel with rap's biggest stars: Last year, D'usse collaborated with legendary tattoo artist Dr. Woo for an event headlined by Ferg.

Doja Cat paintings at RCA Records Arcade

Doja Cat's paintings were on display at the official pop-up for her record label RCA Records. The paintings may look familiar: Titled “Green Horns” and “Half,” they also serve as artwork in the Grammy winner’s “Paint the Town Red” visuals. Obviously an immensely talented musical artist, Doja Cat's painting instincts may be hereditary: in her 2021 Rolling Stone In the cover story, the star says that her grandmother was a painter.

Janelle Monáe at the big premiere of Delilah Miami

World Red Eye

This one's for all the homesick Los Angeles kids. West Hollywood staple Delilah now has a counterpart in Miami, which made its big debut on the scene with an Art Basel launch party. The new location is also the h.wood Group's first offering on the East Coast. The opening featured a set from Delilah aficionado Zack Bia and surprise performances from DJ Khaled, Tyga and Janelle Monáe. Only time will tell if Delilah Miami will become a pop culture fixture like the original, which was the focus of Drake's film. For all dogs cut “7969 Santa” (a homage to Delilah LA’s 7969 Santa Monica Blvd address).

Victoria Monet at Gallery Art House with pattern and purpose

If there's one drinks brand that won Art Basel this year, it was Patrón. The tequila brand hosted a series of daytime kickbacks and evening celebrations at the Gallery Art House on San Marino Island, hosted by Patrón El Cielo and Patrón El Alto (two of the brand's newest products). On Saturday, Victoria Monét attended the Meta Infinity party, where she tried out some virtual reality games and a tequila luge.

Peggy Gou at the Palm Tree Basel

Palmeira Crew

With the success the folks at Palm Tree Crew have had this year, it's only fitting that they end Art Basel with a bang. Join one of the biggest DJs and producers of the moment, Peggy Gou, for a rare and intimate set, and you've got the ultimate kickoff to Art Week. Earlier this year, the global dance festival brought its electronic music prowess to the Hamptons for performances by Calvin Harris and founder Kygo.

Alix Earle and Braxton Berrios in Nylon House


Perhaps the crown jewel of the Art Basel party circuit Nylon have maintained their commitment to success with another iteration of their “Nylon House” series. Having already showcased “Nylon House” at Art Week and Coachella before, the pop culture conglomerate hosted the celebration (which at times felt like a trade show) inside a massive tent right on the beach. As one TikToker said, it was who's who on Raya. Miami power couple Alix Earle and Dolphins wide receiver Braxton Berrios held court in the tent as Solange remixes filled the air. Popup Bagels, a TikTok-fueled viral phenomenon that started in New York and flew south (as did many of the Art Basel attendants) gave away samples. Meanwhile, dozens of “day in the life” people waited at the doors, waiting to enter influencer nirvana (presented by elf Cosmetics, of course).

Sofia Reyes at the Don Julio x Felipe Pantone Por Amor celebration

Dom Julio

Mexican superstar Sofia Reyes followed her Lovers launch coming to Art Basel and performing at the Don Julio x Felipe Pantone Por Amor celebration. Located at the iconic Temple House in South Beach, Reyes played a few songs from her new album, as well as her 2022 collaboration with Becky G, “Mal de Amores.” How appropriate: “Pa’l mal de amores, tequila con canciones.”


John Summit at Ocean Drive Art Issue Launch


Miami's own John Simmit has had quite the year. In March, he scored his first top ten hit on the Billboard dance charts with “Where You Are.” In November he announced a new residency in Las Vegas and was placed on Forbes “30 under 30” list. And then at this year's Art Basel, he was the only artist who was simultaneously sought after and everywhere at once. On Thursday, he appeared at Ocean Drive's Art Issue launch party for a surprise set before continuing his week-long marathon. Electric funk duo Chromeo also performed as more than 1,000 guests attended the Fontainebleau lawn party.

Dwyane Wade and Juvenile at Porsche Presents: art and music at Soho Beach House

Andrew Joseph Woomer

Three-time NBA champion and Miami Heat hero Dwyane Wade stopped by Soho Beach House during Art Basel for an epic set from Juvenile during Porsche's annual “art and music” party. The rapper played hits like “Back That Azz Up”, “Slow Motion” and “400 Degreez”, while the party paid tribute to artist Lyne Lucien, who commissioned two special pieces in honor of Art Week.
