Miami’s III Points Announce Line Up to Enter 2nd Decade

Miami’s leading art & music festival III Points is gearing up for another fall weekender. Returning to Mana Wynwood on Friday, October 18, and Saturday, October 19, the celebrated event has curated another diverse lineup following last year’s sold-out 10th-anniversary edition. Running 13 hours a day and going until 4 AM, fans can see over sixty rising and legendary acts across 11 stages, spanning genres from rap, indie rock, and funk to underground dance, legacy acts, and driving techno.

For its eleventh year as an unrivaled event in Miami and international , III Points will bring iconic British trip-hop collective Massive Attack, who have not played in the city since 2010, alongside the trailblazing French duo Justice fresh off the release of their seminal new album Hyperdrama. Also featured is the prolific English electronic luminary and member of The xx, Jamie XX, Juno Award-winning Canadian producer REZZ, and bedroom pop singer-songwriter PinkPantheress. Additionally, American rapper and record executive Rick Ross, Haitian-Canadian genre-bending music producer Kaytranada, and the London-based collective Jungle will bring their eclectic performances to Mana Wynwood. Joining them is breakout bass-music producer ISOxo, Brazilian Circoloco Records standout Mochakk, rising reggaeton star Bad Gyal, and Brazilian house DJ-producer Vintage Culture, and one of the originators of Detroit Techno, Juan Atkins.

The stellar lineup continues with acts including renowned German producer DJ Koze, pioneering experimental hip-hop producer DJ Shadow, alongside Swedish rap talent and Year0001 cornerstone Yung Lean. Attendees can also anticipate electrifying live performances from industry signatures such as eclectic Parliament Funkadelic with George Clinton at the helm,  Drain Gang honcho Bladee, chillwave trailblazer Toro y Moi, perreo-pop and reggaeton singer Isabella Lovestory, and celebrated retro-soul trio Thee Sacred Souls – creating a multi-faceted experience for all who attend.

The electronic music aspect of the lineup unfolds with the genre’s hottest talents and the scene’s rising stars. Among them is Compton-born electronic staple Channel Tres, UK tech-house mainstay Cloonee, Abracadabra label head BLOND:ISH, Turkish-born Carlita, and Soulection co-founder Joe Kay. Also gracing the III Points dance-centric stages are innovative tech-house DJ-producer PAWSA, Hekater Records’ boss Sara Landry, Detroit house avant-garde Seth Troxler, and Dutch duo Tinlicker. III Points will give new-wave dance artists a platform to showcase their diverse sounds including Brazilian groover Beltran, minimal tech producer Chasewest, Colorado’s future bass innovator Disco Lines, festival mainstay Mall Grab, and Miami’s own Malone. Completing the impressive assemblage are rapidly emerging house talent Ranger Trucco, celebrated producer salute whose highly anticipated debut album drops this summer, and breakout talent renowned for his dynamic UKG sets, Sammy Virji.

Festival-goers can also expect exhilarating B2B sets from a range of DJs coming together to bring unique performances that cannot be replicated elsewhere. Californian experimental producer Lake Hills will be returning to III Points with Miami DJ and Objects Don’t Dance cofounder True Vine for an unmissable IDM collaboration, plus Palestinian DJ Maher Daniel will be teaming up with Miami’s hometown hero Danny Daze as his D33 alter-ego. Lastly, Sudan-born Skin On Skin will be going head-to-head with hard-hitting Irish house producer KETTAMA for a fan-favorite dual set.

Rounding out the lineup is a cocktail of live electronic sets across multiple realms including Arca – the Venezuelan artist known for pushing the boundaries of experimental sound and gender, Berghain regular Aurora Halal, British indie-electronic musician Elderbrook, Club Space resident Jonny From Space, and the dark, alternative producer Sega Bodega.

Speaking about the growth of III Points Co-Founder David Sinopoli says, “Each year we strive to program what the sound of Miami is right now. As we enter into our eleventh year, I feel the most connected and proud of this music offering we have worked so hard to put together.”

Every year, III Points is the largest representation of Miami talent, providing them with a platform to showcase their work to a wider audience while also organizing art shows and music events for additional local performance opportunities.
