III Points, returning for its sixth and largest installment on February 15-17, 2019, reveals further additions to its lineup today including LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy. Murphy, who was the first person to play the festival in 2013, was also set to play III Points with LCD Soundsystem in 2016 before Hurricane Matthew led to an emergency cancellation. This year will see Murphy perform a special closing set on Saturday night at Mainframe. Further artists just added include Eclair Fifi, Twelve’len, Arthur Baker, Otto Von Schirach, Acoqui, Richie Hell, Chaim, Jeremy Ismael, Nonotak: Eclipse and Morgan Bryson.
The festival is also unveiling this year’s art programming today which includes work across the grounds and in Mana Contemporary. Featured exhibitions include Aether presented in partnership with Heineken, a work by musician Max Cooper and Architecture Social Club, an award-winning design collective, plus work from architect and design duo Motorefisico, Nonotak, Hybycozo, mural artist Brian Butler, multi-dimensional artist Haiiileen, Mokibaby, graphic designer and illustrator Luis Pinto, Raw, Little Späti, Porn Nails, Scissor Brothers and more. See below for the full list of artists.
Additionally, in partnership with III Points, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami will present a video-based exhibition at the festival from iconic feminist artist Judy Chicago’s visionary “Atmospheres,” performances utilizing smoke and fireworks. Between 1968 and 1975 Chicago employed a revolutionary use of pyrotechnics at select locations around California and the Pacific Northwest in an effort to “feminize” the landscape—the artist’s rebuttal to the male-dominated land art movement of the early 1970s. With smoke, fireworks, and flares Chicago creates powerful displays of light and color, inventing her own imagery intended to recast the environment while asserting female agency.
The festival is also announcing today the return of Skate Space, a roller-skating stage presented in partnership with Stillhouse and Faena Art. The lineup includes DJ Earl, Suzi Analogue,December Beaches, Broken Thread, Gami, Keanu Orange and more.
Curated with care, III Points continues its tradition of showcasing artists from across genres and the underground for a distinct festival experience. The festival recently revealed its day by day lineup which kicks off on Friday with headlining sets from Tyler, the Creator and Beach House. The weekend continues with headlining performances from SZA, James Blake, Herbie Hancock, A$AP Rocky and Erykah Badu, plus additional performances from The Internet, Peggy Gou, Pussy Riot, Raekwon & Ghostface Killah, Yaeji, SOB x RBE, Kelsey Lu and more. See below for the full day by lineups. Tickets are available now via iiipoints.com.
With over 100 musical performers and sets running until 5:00 a.m. each night, III Points blends visual art, film, food and style in Miami’s vibrant Wynwood Arts District. In addition to an international and wildly acclaimed lineup, respected curators will present stages of local, rising and experimental music. The festival’s visual arts lineup—taking over the 100,000 square foot Mana Wynwood—will be announced in the coming weeks.
