Last year, III Points had an epic weekend with record turnouts, despite the challenges of Hurricane Matthew, with performances by M83, Redman and Method Man, Thievery Corporation, Flight Facilities and Dixon, along with countless trendsetting music acts and local talent. The NASA-backed installation, Mars 2030, debuted at III Points transcending physical space with a multi-sensory 3D rendition of Mars. The Sunset@Noonart installation took Vaporwave culture into a physical realm with internet-based aesthetics and interdimensional audio components.  For more information visit iiipoints.com.
