Noire Miami’s Ultimate Black Basel guide – Part 2: Live music events for a Hip Hop Art Basel vibe
Art Basel is more than just art and music provides the perfect collision. This year's music line up features the hottest artists on the scene.
Part 1 of Noire Miami's Ultimate Black Basel Guide gave a rundown of the black and Caribbean exhibits to check out and explore. It's amazing to see how much Miami's local black art scene is growing and it's even more exciting to see Caribbean and Haitian artists take the forefront.
In Part 2 of our Black Basel Guide, we spice up Art Basel a bit with a listing of all of the Hip Hop artists that will be performing at various shows. Some of these events are private, but I'm sure you know how to work your way around that.
