25,000 Guests Connect in Miami for Live Music, Interactive Art & Technology
III Points celebrated their fourth-annual music, art & technology festival in Miami this past October 7-9.
Hurricane Matthew moved across the coast of Florida on Friday, October 7. The storm created serious problems for the LCD Soundsystem road crew. The band was unable to safely transport their gear to Miami during Hurricane Matthew. III Points did note that the band would be unable to perform, but it gave a chance for Vince Staples to step up to a headlining position.
Event organizers noted the virtual reality projects and art installations on hand in 2016: ‘Mars 2030, debuted at III Points, courtesy of FUSION and virtual reality producer Julian Reyes. Transcending physical space with a multi-sensory 3D rendition of Mars, the virtual reality experience offered guests an immersive walkthrough of Mars. Experimental fashion innovator, Aileen Quintana, unveiled her latest other-worldly art installation, Sunset@Noon, a project that took Vaporwave culture into a physical realm, with Internet-based aesthetics and interdimensional audio components.’
The three day event combined cutting-edge technology with established artists such as Thievery Corporation, Redman & Method Man, Miami native Trick Daddy, along with mixing it up with musicians on the verge of making a mark in the music industry.
