// festival guide : III points 2019

If you haven’t seen the line up for Miami’s III Points 3-day genre-bending music festival in February, BRACE YASELF! I can barely handle looking at this flyer without overwhelming, you guessed it, FOMO. III Points is a unique event of it’s kind, founded in 2013 as a means to represent & unite South Florida’s unique, diverse community. It takes place in the heart of Miami – the Wynwood Arts District, with a multi-sensory experience encompassing 100+ performers, 6+ stages, immersive art installations, lectures, panels, masterclasses & more. Festival gates open at 5pm with music ALL NIGHT until 5am.
Single day or full festival passes available here. Energy sold separately.

I attempted to go through every artist on the line-up (some too obscure to even Google), & narrowed down my top picks – which is still a considerably tall order 😅 But that just means it’s a really well curated event! If you can’t join us, stay tuned to see what we can actually accomplish! We’ll be sharing our experience on the gram with you live~

Obviously, we are going to prioritize hard-hitters like Erykah Badu (an actual beaming, true goddess that will teach you how to astral travel during her set), James Blake (looping his latest album 24hrs a day), SZA (a stan since 2012), Tyler The Creator, A$AP Rocky, Herbie Hancock (wut?!), Raekwon & Ghostface Killah (double wut!!), Blood Orange (3 times still ain’t enough), The Internet, Peggy Gou (an ICON), Yaeji, Toro Y Moi (was just reminiscing about seeing his sets in the back of a pizza shop in our hometown 💖), DJ Koze, James Murphy (DFA/LCD Soundsystem), Ty Segall + White Fence, Pussy Riot… Then of course there’s Suzi Analogue, Joy Orbison, Ben UFO, DJ Earl, Honey Dijon (all night long!), Mall Grab, Kelsey Lu (a true angel), John Maus, &ME (Berlin), JPEGMAFIA, DJ Seinfeld, DJ Stingray, Baba Stiltz, Jacques Greene, Auntie Flo, SOB X RBE, Egyptian Lover (does not age), Channel Tres, Nar, & local Florida artists with world-class talent Donzii (female-fronted post-punk!!), December Beaches, Sel.6, Tama Gucci, Loka, LTENGHT, Kumi, YNOT, Get Face, Yazmine 🤤, Keanu Orange, Just to name a few…

Okay okay, we might die. If we do, please turn us into diamonds.

If you’re also looking for schedule advice, or just wanting new sounds, I curated a Spotify playlist with the artists (with available music streaming on Spotify*) mentioned above + MORE to accompany the festival. *If unavailable on Spotify, find links to listen to their SoundCloud by clicking the underlined names in bold above!

Recap to follow! See you in Miami x
