Get to Know The Past, Present, and Future of Music at III Points 2019
Known for its bold and diverse curation of artists every year, III Points did not hold back on their 2019 lineup announcement with modern, genre-blurring Hip-Hop/R&B artists topping the bill like SZA, Tyler, the Creator, A$AP Rocky, & Blood Orange. The festival proves its creative reach for bringing in acts typically not seen touring in Florida too often with early, soulful inspirations like Erykah Badu and Herbie Hancock.
Time-traveling through decades of musical influences, III Points is also known for taking you through an avant-garde display of art & technology. Found in the international art-hub & mural haven that is the Wynwood Arts District of Miami, the festival places the crowd in the middle of numerous murals painted by artists from around the globe and invites the audience to explore multiple immersive exhibitions & light shows to get lost into night.
Running it’s sixth edition on February 15-17, III Points has moved forward a few months from its usual October dates due to previous weather interruptions & set cancellations. Now we can enjoy our favorite dreamy bands like Beach House and James Blake in the prime 50 degree breezy Miami night winter air from 5pm - 5am all weekend long. Yup! The festival carries on all night long with futuristic bass waves bumping from underground DJ/House sensations like Honey Dijon, Peggy Gou, DJ Koze, Yaeji, and even a DJ Set by Toro y Moi!
Though, that’s not the only surprise set we’re getting treated too on this fantastic lineup. We’ll also be enjoying performances from alternative-R&B and jazz-influenced favorites like Masego, The Internet, & Khruangbin as well as Wu-Tang legends Raekwon & Ghostface Killah performing “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx” in full.
You can also expect other extraordinary collaborative performances from the psychedelic garage rock sounds of Ty Segall & White Fence and who knows what surprises Tyler, the Creator & A$AP Rocky have in store for us.
III Points is committed to offering a unique experience different from others in the area — perhaps even the entire state. Where else will you see Porter Robinson's side project, Virtual Self; the Kremlin's worst nightmare, Pussy Riot; and local noise legend Rat Bastard all on the same bill?
Tickets are now on sale over at the III Points website. With Tier I tickets sold out, general admission is now going for $195 each, or fans have the option of purchasing VIP tickets for $375, along with payment plans and layaway options available.
