III Points Updates Already Insane Lineup with Mark Ronson, Kevin Parker and More
by Miguel Tost
October is set to be the stage for one of Miami’s most unique music festivals in recent history. Boasting a roster that includes Barclay Crenshaw, Richie Hawtin, Kaytranada, the xx, and the first South Florida performance from the Gorillaz, everything is slated to make this year’s III Points Music Festival the event of the year. Even if they felt they could add a handful of other names, who else could they fit on this already stacked lineup?
The festival answers this question with a bunch of new acts that have just been added to perform Friday, October 13 to Sunday, October 15. This includes Arthur Baker, Julio Victoria, Pumarosa, Monolink, Jonas Rathsman, and Perfume Genius along with local acts Anshaw Black, Jaialai, Paperwater, Tremends, and Ynot. However, the biggest addition to the roster comes in the form of a unexpected, back-to-back DJ set bringing together pop-funk star Mark Ronson and Tame Impala’s frontman Kevin Parker. Although the two have worked together on Ronson’s last album Uptown Special (2015) and Lady Gaga’s Joanne (2016), this will be a special set that very few venues across the world have witnessed including Glastonbury in the United Kingdom, Corona Capital in Mexico, and Governor’s Ball in New York.
With these additions, the headliners, and more performances from the likes of Lil B, Thundercat, Rüfüs Du Sol, Bonobo, and more, III Points have positioned themselves as the “it” place to be come October.
Tickets are on sale for $190 for general admission and $345 for VIP.
