III Point organizers rose to (and surpassed) expectations in an epic feat for 2019, showcasing so many distinctly different headlining acts such as SZA, A$AP Rocky, Tyler The Creator and Erykah Badu. These names only skim the surface of the intricate and nuanced lineup.
“The mission of III Points is to reflect our community in Miami with a bold, diverse lineup,” says III Points co-founder Molly Hawkins. “Bringing together the artists that inspire us most — the greatest minds in music — has been our priority from day one and we are incredibly excited about this year’s festival.”
III Points arose six years ago as a means to represent and unite a unique and diverse community. The festical itself offers a platform that showcases Miami’s up-and-coming music acts, along with local artists from many disciplines, by placing them alongside the greatest musical and artistic minds in the world. The blending of experimental, new age, reggae, old school pop, hip hop, R&B, drum and bass and even electroswing strikes a balance that makes festy heads do a double-take. Not only is balance amongst the genres freely supported throughout the lineup, but the fest also extends its graces towards acts on the rise that deserve exposure.
Others diving into the mix include Khruangbin, who are sure to perform an epic cinematic set, along with Beach House throwing their ambient flare onto a III Point stage. For you 90’s babies, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon will fix you up and get you back in touch with serious hip hop and style — performing Only Built 4 Cuban Linx in full! Blood Orange will be taking the stage as well, along with James Blake and much-anticipated sophisticated, edgy, dare we call it, new age rock-n-roll sets from Ty Segall & White Fence while Pussy Riot brings the punk.
