As October edges nearer, Miami’s dark horse music festival III Points is ramping up the hype around its massive tenth-anniversary celebration. This morning, the homegrown indie-electronic fest dropped details around its official Satellite party series for 2023, and it’s shaping up to be four days straight of blissed-out musical mayhem.
Spanning five iconic Miami venues, the series features hard-hitting headliners including John Summit, James Murphy, Hudson Mohawke, Jamie Jones, The Martinez Brothers, Jacques Greene, Daniel Avery, Dixon and many more.
Ahead of III Points’ official kick-off on Friday, October 20, LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy will deliver a rare performance in tight quarters at Downtown’s newly minted Jolene Sound Room on Thursday, October 19.
Thursday festivities also include DJ sets from electronic visionary Hudson Mohawke and ascending talent Nia Archives at The Ground, along with a DJ set from the Parisian duo The Blaze and Soulwax side project 2manydjs at Club Space. On the live music front, Mexico City’s alt-pop dream Cuco is slated to perform at the Miami Beach Bandshell.
On Friday, catch tech-house standout Cloonee at Floyd, III Points mainstay Jacques Greene at The Ground and deep-house maven Black Loops at Jolene. As is tradition, Club Space carries the party torch late into the morning with three back-to-back DJ sets going down on the terrace: Âme B2B Dixon, Adam Ten B2b Mita Gami, and Perel B2B Rebolledo.
Saturday brings a major dance moment with the pairing of Hot Creations label head Jamie Jones playing B2B with the infectiously upbeat Martinez Brothers at Club Space. Meanwhile, English producer Joy Orbison and Phantasy Sound’s Daniel Avery will perform downstairs at The Ground, and Miami-based production duo Bedouin perform at Floyd.
The madness comes to a head on Sunday with the annual Closing Party at Club Space, featuring a set from dance music superstar John Summit, with support from Mau P and Aluna. Renowned techno producer VTSSwill also join INVT for a performance at The Ground.
