Last year, III Points had an epic weekend with record turnouts, despite the challenges of Hurricane Matthew, with performances by M83, Redman and Method Man, Thievery Corporation, Flight Facilities and Dixon, along with countless trendsetting music acts and local talent. The NASA-backed installation, Mars 2030, debuted at III Points transcending physical space with a multi-sensory 3D rendition of Mars. The Sunset@Noonart installation took Vaporwave culture into a physical realm with internet-based aesthetics and interdimensional audio components. For more information visit iiipoints.com.

ABOUT III POINTS:
III Points Music, Art, and Technology Festival was created to fill the void between the South Beach lifestyle that had been synonymous with our city and the cultural renaissance that was bubbling across the bridge. We set out to create a platform that will showcase our Miami-based music acts, along with local thinkers, dreamers, and doers that are reshaping our community. III Points launched in 2013 featuring James Murphy, Jamie xx, and DJ Shadow. Subsequent years included Lykke Li, Flying Lotus, Metronomy, Chet Faker, Jamie Jones, Duke Dumont, Cashmere Cat, Thievery Corporation, M83, Redman, Method Man, The Martinez Brothers, Flight Facilities, Nicolas Jaar, Run The Jewels, Panda Bear and much more.
III Points is a multi-day music, art, and technology experience. The festival curates a lineup of cutting-edge talent, large scale art installations and experiential technology. III Points Presents is an expansion of the III Points brand, hosting smaller scale productions throughout the year during signature events such as Art Basel and Miami Music Week, as well as one-off shows.
