Rakastella has gone to great lengths to provide you with a better experience. To achieve this, they have put in place a number of measures, such as increasing the number of toilets which will be continually staffed for cleanliness, installing water refill stations so you can stay hydrated and ensuring bars offer carefully selected pristine cocktail menus, freshly squeezed juices and other healthy options available after 3 a.m. as required by law. Add an ever-expanding array of local dishes and you have all the fuel you need to last until that transcendent moment of sunrise.
A whole new type of musical encounter that nourishes the mind, body and soul is rakastella.
