The Strokes, Robyn, Wu-Tang Clan to headline III Points 2020


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.

Riot Fest Announce 2015 Toronto Line-Up

It’s starting to feel a lot like music Christmas thanks to Riot Fest unveiling the first wave of artists for their Toronto dates, set to take place on Sept. 19 and Sept. 20 at Downsview Park..

Wu-Tang Clan, Frank Turner, Alexisonfire, and Thrice are just some of the big names heading to Canada for the weekend-long festival.

But don’t get too upset that some artists have been left off the initial release; apparently five names are going to be kept a secret until June 16.

For now, check out the mighty jammed line-up below and if you live in Canada or want to make the trek to Toronto for the show, we suggest buying your tickets after you check out the list.

ASL Interpreter Steals the Show

It might have been the return of Wu-Tang Clan, but let’s just say that it wasn’t the staple 90s group that stole the attention of many at this past weekend’s Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, TN.

Their American Sign Language interpreter, who has only been identified as Holly, stole the show signing along to everything that the hip-hop group threw at her. The way that she performed, with such self-assurance and confidence took the attention off of the stage and onto the space in front of the stage.

But that wasn’t the only place that our dear friend Holly showed up, she was even called on stage to perform with Matt & Kim and did some ASL and show off what she got and even better, she got called on stage to perform with R. Kelly.

Don’t believe us? You can see the video of Holly signing for R. Kelly here and where it all started, with Wu-Tang Clan.

Wu-Tang Clan Announce New Album


Last year, when Wu-Tang Clan leader, RZA was asked by The New York Times if there was a possibility of the group getting back together in the near future, he hinted at possibility of such a thing happening. “There’s one last job Wu-Tang clan must do,” he told NYT. “The 20th anniversary [of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)] is next year. And we need to, one time, completely, efficiently, properly represent our brand.”

Turns out, that it wasn’t just a hint, the group have finally decided to come together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut. First thing first, they will be releasing a new album sometime in July called, A Better Tomorrow. Just when fans of the group didn’t think things could get better, they will be heading out on a brief tour. According to a press release given in the UK the tour will feature “all living members from the influential group performing on stage together.”

With time off and away from the group brings knowledge, at least for RZA. “This time, [we need to be] on time for press and for concerts and studio,” he also told The New York Times. “I think we could give the world one more record, maybe.”

Maybe could definitely be turning into a heck yeah in the future, we’ll just have to wait and see.
