Come for the sun and sand and stay for the….eclectic music festival?
Well, when Will Smith said, “Welcome to Miami,” he was definitely onto something.
On Tuesday (Jan. 21), the lineup for the 2020 incarnation of Miami’s III Points Music Festival was unleashed, and to say that the headliners are surprising would be an understatement.
Headlining this year’s event will be the Strokes (they know South Florida exists?), Robyn, Wu-Tang Clan, and Disclosure.
Both the Strokes and Robyn will make their III Points debut this year. For The Strokes, this is their long-awaited return to the Magic City; the group’s last appearance was in 2002.
Joining the Strokes, Robyn, Wu-Tang Clan, and Disclosure will be Kaytranada, Caribou, Amon Tobin Presents Two Fingers, Chris Lake, Stereolab, Tycho and Green Velvet, and more.
Bringing in some local Miami flavor to the otherwise “worldly” lineup will be Jaialai, Donzii, Thunderpony, Las Nubes, Haute Tension, Butterfly Snapple, Ghostflower and Palomino Blond.
At the end of the two-day event, over 90 performers would have taken over the music festival’s many stages/locations.
III Points will return to its longtime home of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District during the weekend of May 1-2. Tickets for the event go on sale this Friday, Jan. 24, at 10 a.m. ET. Two-day passes start at $99, while VIP admission will run you $249 for both days.
Usually thrown in February, this year’s event was postponed a couple of months due to Super Bowl LIV taking over South Florida during that time frame. Let’s just say, Miamians like to party, but Super Bowl LIV + III Points may have been a little too much.
