III Points Music, Art, & Technology Festival is thrilled to announce its 2016 lineup, with a stacked roster of talent in its fourth year running. This year’s festival returns to Mana Wynwood, where it all began, on October 7th, 8th and 9th of 2016, bringing a bigger than ever production featuring cutting-edge visual art, innovative technology, and acts that Miami music fans have been waiting to experience.
III Points presents its most impressive lineup yet, with exciting news that Miami will witness a rare, exclusive performance by Grammy-nominated LCD Soundsystem, a show marking the band’s only Florida appearance of the year. Following a 5-year hiatus, LCD Soundsystem will take the stage at III Points in a distinct, boutique festival setting, where guests will be graced by the dance-punk icons for a special musical journey. A longtime supporter of the festival in its early days, James Murphy believed in III Points when it was just a dream. Years later, he returns to the city with LCD Soundsystem, for one of the most highly anticipated performances of the year.
“Its beautiful to watch this project come full circle with LCD Soundsystem headlining III Points this year,” says David Sinopoli, co-founder of III Points. “James Murphy was one of the first people to believe in our festival when it was just an idea in 2013. Now in our fourth year, we’re ready to take that next step with some headlining talent, and it just so happened to be the year he was putting the band back together. 2016 is starting to feel cosmically aligned.”
At this year’s festival, guests can also expect a diverse mix of headliners, with highlights such as Thievery Corporation, M83, Dixon, Flying Lotus (DJ set), Method Man and Redman, DJ Koze and Maya Jane Coles along with Miami’s best local music acts. III Points stays true to its roots and authenticity as a hyper-local festival, with every stage featuring a local act performing.
Recently named Most Innovative Event Professionals by BizBash, III Points’ founders David Sinopoli and Erica Freshman were featured as the only Miami-based contenders of the issue, an accolade that demonstrates the micro-festival’s significant evolution. With last year’s festival seeing over 20,000 attendees throughout the course of 3 days, the fourth annual III Points Music, Art & Technology Festival will surely see these numbers grow for this year.
The three-day living installation will offer art gallery shows, demos, lectures and a special virtual reality experience that will transport guests to another dimension. Fans can purchase tickets beginning Tuesday, May 17th at 11:11am, with a limited amount of 3-day tickets on sale for the price of $99.
