III Points Festival in Wynwood Is Shaping Up Nicely with James Murphy, Jamie XX, and DJ Shadow

Up here in BroCo and PBC, we have plenty of festivals to keep us occupied. Miami, well, that's another story. Festivals seem much rarer down there than the standalone blowout concert. That's why the announcement of the three-day III Points music and arts fest in Wynwood is particularly notable South Florida news.

This will also be the first musical happening of this sort in the burgeoning arts district just North of downtown. The party starts October 3 and continues through the 5th, promising -- besides plenty of live jams and visuals -- film screenings, interactive games, and seminars.

The lineup is pretty impressive, both in the sonic and visual realms. The announcement of DJ sets by James Murphy, Jamie XX, and DJ Shadow made our draws drop. And just this week, the list of exhibiting artists was released, gaining them a hearty nod of the head from us at County Grind.

Though the event will involve about 19 venues, including art galleries, the folks behind the affair are Bardot's Amir Ben-Zion, Erica Freshman, and David Sinopoli. They teamed up with the label Young Turks who clearly brought in some of the big names, like Jamie xx (the xx is signed to them).

III Points has incredible sponsors on board too, and by incredible, we mean boozy. There's Strongbow (yes!), Sailor Jerry, Heineken Light, Hendricks Gin, Moet, and others. Expect to slug down your drinks while ogling the art installations and swaying like a weirdo to the sounds of the acts listed below.
