The III Points Music Festival was founded in 2013 by four friends who sought to highlight the diversity of their Miami home through the power of song. The festival welcomes many local acts, but its goal is to highlight these up-and-comers by placing them alongside some of the best-known artists in their respective genres. Held every February in the Mana Wynwood Convention Center in Miami, Fla., III Points plays host to a wide variety of musicians, making it one of the most eclectic music festivals in the game.
The Changing History of III Points
In 2013, David Sinopoli and his friend Erica Freshman noticed that while their hometown of Miami had a happening local music scene, it was going largely unsung due to the awkward geographical location of the city. Together with Tara Long, Austin Paul, and a number of other friends, they came up with the basic outline for what would come to be known as the III Points Music, Art & Technology Festival. While the premise of the festival has remained the same, its curators are committed to ensuring that the experience continues to evolve with each passing year in order to better reflect Miami’s ever-changing community. After Hurricane Matthew threatened to derail the event in 2016, Sinopoli and the others opted to move the dates of the festival from October to February.
