Art Basel Miami 2011: What's Up Saturday


Save for a few low-key events Sunday, Art Basel Miami festivities are mostly wrapping up tonight. Did you make it through the week OK with a few hours of sleep a night and a dull, never-ending hangover? Good, because there's still stuff to hit up this evening! Here's a guide to what's going on Saturday. See you next year, Miami Beach!


Basel Castle (41 NW 20th Street, Wynwood, Miami) is back tonight. Yippee! The music side of things features Yelawolf (pictured above), The Rapture (DJ set), Tamara Sky, Heroes X Villains and Blorr. Plus there's tons of live art and installations including works by Ron English, Sam Flores, Tara McPherson, Jeremy Fish, Mark Bode and Greg Mike.  And the best news is that it's FREE before 9 p.m. with an RSVP here or, if you want guaranteed admission, that's only $10.
