On Oct. 17, III Points Music, Art & Technology Festival united artistic communities from across the Miami and the country as it sold-out another record-breaking, fifth year. Featuring headlining performances by Gorillaz, which marked their Miami debut, the tech fesitval also featured sets by (listed alphabetically): Arca, Aurelia Smith, Bonobo, Kali Uchis, Kelsey Lu, King, Kaitlyn, Kaytranada, Nicolas Jaar, Perfume Genius, Richie Hawtin, The Black Madonna, Willow Smith, and Yves Tumor.
Opening in full at its longtime home Mana Wynwood to the public, Ill Points invited fans to experience immersive artworks throughout its 100,000 square foot warehouse. Installations included the North American debut of Brian Eno’s extended audio work The Ship, and another North American debut of a new work by Nonotak, and further works by Jason Boogie, @Haiileen, Jose Mertz, Mokibaby and many more.
Also making its debut this year was the DITHER stage, an unconventional performance space featuring a predominantly local line up of experimental music curated by Tara Long and designed by Andrew Byrd. Serving as the main entry point to the festival’s expansive arts space and indoor Main Frame stage, DITHER presented a unique viewpoint, challenging expectations and perception by offering the audience atypical vantage points to view, hear and experience the performances.
III Points’ onsite venues the White Dragon and Door IV played host to parties from the likes of iconic Chicago label Teklife, legendary local venue Electric Pickle, Space Tapes, Castaway, Made in Miami, Link Miami Rebels, Slap and Tickle and more. Dates for the 2018 festival are to be announced imminently.
