Rapture Electronic Music Festival founders Youssef Khamis and Misha Warum wanted to take advantage of the natural beauty of Miami, stating “we feel that taking a lineup of this scale and presenting it in an alternative environment was an opportunity to showcase Miami’s geography to people outside the city. We even have beach access, so fans can take a break from dancing and enjoy the water.”

Featuring four uniquely themed stages powered by L-Acoustic Systems, each stage will play host to top global underground artists. The In-Tune Stage will see international DJs Steve Lawler, Ellen Allien, Fur Coat, andhim, and newly added Dennis Ferrer, Gaiser, Magdalena, Rodriguez Jr. (live) captain the festival’s main stage. The Flying Circus stage together with Miami’s own Secret Garden will take festival goers on a ride with its carnivalesque theme in a 5,000 square foot tent complete with stilt walkers, sexy clowns, thrilling aerialists, all to the beats of Detroit techno icon Carl Craig, Art Department, Audiofly, Matthew Dear and Francesca Lombardo, M.A.N.D.Y. plus an exclusive Miami appearance from M.A.N.F.L.Y.

Representing the progressive side of house, The Soundgarden & Castaway Stage invites guests to dance with their feet in the sand to the sounds of Hernan Cattaneo, Guy J, Henry Saiz, Dave Seaman, and Nick Warren and Jody Wisternoff together as Way Out West for a special reunion.

The current Rocklahoma band lineup is as follows: Soundgarden, Def Leppard, The Offspring, Stone Sour, Seether, Three Days Grace, The Cult, Skillet, Ratt (featuring Stephen Pearcy, Warren DeMartini, Juan Croucier and Carlos Cavazo), Jackyl, The Pretty Reckless, Pierce The Veil, Taking Back Sunday, Suicidal Tendencies, Nothing More, Buckcherry, Zakk Sabbath, Diamond Head, Fuel, Black Stone Cherry, Rival Sons, In Flames, Slaughter, Starset, Norma Jean, Fozzy, Red Sun Rising, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Wage War, Badflower, Goodbye June, DED, Royal Republic, Aeges, One Less Reason, Wildstreet, Black Tora, Lynam, Ratchet Dolls, ASKA, Moxy & The Influence, Niterain, The Tip, Diamond Lane, Nova Rex, Dead Metal Society, Deathgrip, Desire The Fire, Wild Planes, Electro_Nomicon, 3-D In Your Face, Coda Cutlass, Kore Rozzik, Retrospect All-Stars, Adakain, 5 Star Hooker, Arson City, The Chimpz, As Above So Below, Keychain, Stolen Rhodes, Nicnos, Paralandra, Hoodslide, NonHuman Era, The Mendenhall Experiment, Midnight Mob, Another Lost Year, Wild Fire, Final Drive, Sun and Flesh, BC and the Big Rig, Screaming Red Mutiny, The Adarna, Locust Grove, Skytown, Difuzer, Save the Hero, Reliance Code, Sweatin Bullets, The Normandys, Thousand Years Wide, The Fairweather, The Revolutioners and Weston Horn and the Hush.

Add to the mix some of the hottest developing talent like Pierce The Veil, The Pretty Reckless, Nothing More, and Rival Sons, and I think we’ve accomplished the goal of achieving one of the most diverse festival lineups of the year anywhere. It’s going to be a really memorable weekend!”
