Miami’s underground-celebrating III Points festival is gearing up for its fourth installment, to be held October 7-9. Acting as a counterpoint to the often superficially perceived image of Miami’s club culture, III Points’ mission statement is as follows:
“III Points Music, Art & Technology Festival, was born in 2013 as platform to shed light on Miami’s talented local acts, vendors, artists, thinkers, dreamers, doers and idea people. Our artist community was thriving but the perception of Miami was stereotypical to South Beach bottles & model culture. We created III Points as a home and voice for the ‘other’ Miami.”
In May, the festival unveiled an extensive lineup that amply fulfilled its modus operandi, with LCD Soundsystem, Dixon, M83, Flying Lotus, and further critically acclaimed artists headlining above a plethora of local musicians,. At the bottom of their initial lineup announcement’s lengthy roster, III Points promised there would be “more to come.”
With 100 days remaining until the festival, III Points has delivered on its promise with the addition of Machinedrum and 15 local artists to their roster. The lineup’s full addendum is listed below, and tickets are available here.
