Miamians bemoaning the lack of summer music festivals around these parts have something to look forward to this fall—when the weather is actually pleasant and we can once again emerge from our air-conditioned caves. III Points Music, Art, & Technology Festival returns for its fourth year October 7–9 with a stacked lineup of big-name acts that includes LCD Soundsystem, Thievery Corporation, M83, Method Man and Redman. For the first time in four years, the festival is introducing a VIP pass it’s calling the Foresight Pass, plus a few top-secret changes we’re revealing here.
More outdoor performances at five different stages.
More concerts will be held outdoors rather than inside the Mana Wynwood warehouse spaces. The grounds surrounding Mana will be transformed into an outdoor garden with stages, food and drink tents and more. There will be a total of five stages: Mind Melt, outdoor mainstage for headliners; Mainframe, an indoor stage for DJs and various hip-hop acts; S3CTOR, an outdoor stage reserved for local bands to play; and two new stages whose names will be revealed at the festival. What we can tell you is that one will be a hidden, speakeasy space.
You can chill in a VIP lounge.
Foresight ticketholders will have a dedicated entrance and access to cocktail bars, seating areas, private restrooms, charging stations and complimentary beer, water and Red Bull. Plus, because the point of III Points is to bring local music lovers access to amazing musicians, the festival is automatically upgrading all Prophet Pass holders (people who bought their tickets before the lineup was announced) to Foresight status. To find out about upgrades, festivalgoers can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There’s going to be a virtual reality stage.
Festivalgoers can prepare to be transported into another dimension, with a special virtual reality experience that combines cutting-edge visual arts and music. Don't expect the holograms of a few years back. What III Points is planning will be current and cool.
