MIAMI, FL – Even as America crosses the 400,000 death total due to coronavirus and the pandemic rages on, so does the entertainment and nightlife in some parts of the country. On Saturday (January 16), a party in Miami saw 150 attendees with performances from Lil Baby, Post Malone, Gucci Mane, 24kGoldn and more.
The South Beach soiree saw very little mask-wearing and even less social distancing according to Page Six sources and Instagram posts from the night. Tyga, Lil Pump, Jake Paul and reality star Scott Disick were also reportedly spotted in attendance of the South Beach rager, which was held in Real Housewives of Miami‘s Lisa Hochstein’s backyard.

“We offered the backyard of our home to a friend that wanted to plan a last-minute get-together,” Hochstein relayed to Page Six. “They were required to hire private security and cap the capacity at 150 people. Guests were temperature checked upon arrival and could only access the outdoor space surrounding our house. Guests were told to wear masks when not eating or drinking.”
Guests were expected to go get their own COVID-19 tests prior to attending the party. The bash was reportedly a birthday party held for Electric Feel Entertainment founder Austin Rosen. His signees include a couple of the performers such as Posty and the “Mood” rapper, who came on around midnight.
“Miami is open bitches,” another anonymous attendee told Page Six. “House parties are happening because people don’t want to go home, they don’t want the party to stop. People do not give a fuck.”
