WHAT: III Points Music, Art & Technolgy Festival
WHERE: Mana Wynwood Convention Center
WHEN: October 13-15
In just five years, III Points has managed to establish itself as one of the most innovative and important festivals in South Florida, and this year, the festival will look to add on to that legacy when it takes over Miami during the third weekend of October.
Artists like The XX, Nicolas Jarr, and Bonobo, are just some of the acts that make this year’s festival an experience you can’t miss. However, the festival’s biggest name this year is British virtual band Gorillaz, who will be performing in South Florida for the first time in their careers. Other recognizable artists include Lil B, Kaytranada, and Danny Brown, while local talent will also be present in the form of Deaf Poets, Kike Roldan, Virgo, among others.
Honoring its location at the heart of Miami’s Wynwood Art District, III Points will also feature innovative art installations like Richie Hawtin’s Close and the highly anticipated The Ship by Brian Eno, which places various speakers in a room to create an interactive, sonic experience unlike any other.
The festival will also see the debut of DITHER, an experimental stage with no headliner and featuring a predominantly local lineup. Curated by Tara Long and Andrew Byrd, DITHER will challenge the audience’s perception of entertainment by focusing on the more unconventional aspects of music. Meanwhile, installations by Nonotak Studios and Strangeways Magazine are certain to create a buzz among attendees as well.
With less than three weeks to go, single-day and 3-day general admission passes are still available, but they’re expected to go quickly. For more information about tickets, lineup, and venue, visit www.iiipoints.com
