    III Points Festival 2021

    The organizers of III Points festival here in Miami have postponed the event for the third time since local authorities won't allow it to happen this spring due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic concerns. They are now trying again for October 22-23. Having been to past events, I'm not sure how it's going to happen in the fall without attendance still being reduced since people can be packed pretty close together in both the indoor and outdoor spaces at the Mana Wynwood complex, usually in an "enhanced" state.

    Much of the lineup remains the same as before. There are a bunch of blacked out acts that will get announced on April 12 according to the promoters.

    Well, this is interesting: Today I got an email about a scaled-down, 2-day outdoor event III Points is hosting in collaboration with Secret Project Festival L.A. and Insomniac. It's supposed to be held on April 30 and May 1, which are the previously scheduled dates of III Points, at a venue TBA here in Miami:

    The secret is out. 🤫 III Points and our friends from Secret Project in Los Angeles are coming together for a two stage, fully outdoor, limited capacity, CDC compliant event in Miami on April 30 & May 1, 2021.

    A small gathering of beautiful people with beautiful music in the most beautiful city in the world.

    Tickets on sale Tuesday, 3/23 at 11:11AM ET.

    I'm not sure if I'd go, but this might just work.

      When I first saw the III Points lineup and the blurred acts to be announced April 12 (the day after what would have been Coachella W1) my first thought was GV would announce something in early April for the two October weekends prior to III Points. However with the Variety news about Coachella moving again to April (it's rightful month anyway) I'm not sure whether I should bother making plans for Oct 8-10.

      I also have III Points tickets. We were supposed to go last April and I had just finished booking a big Florida trip, when COVID hit.

        2-day GA and VIP sold out. There are single-day GA passes still available. The location still hasn't been officially disclosed; but it is in the 33149 zip code, leading me to believe it will be on Virginia Key Beach near where I used to work. There have been other small-scale music festivals previously held at this location, including one that I had attended 3.5 years ago.

        I'm going to pass on this.

          You probably should hold on to the tickets for now. After the entire lineup reveal on the 12th, it looks like the promoters are going to allow for a refund period starting April 16 in case you can't or don't want to travel here in the fall.

          I would go again if the COVID-19 situation is under control by then, but I have the luxury of waiting and buying tickets at a later date since it's local.

            It's in Florida. Unless you love Trump, stay away from that rat hole.

              Despite popular characterizations, Florida is not politically or socially monolithic. Southeast Florida (Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-West Palm Beach metro) is quite different from other parts of the state. Although he was bolstered by the sizable right-leaning Cuban-American community and some of the immigrant families from Nicaragua and Venezuela, Trump lost in all three counties comprising the area.

                      It's still at the Mana Wynwood. It's listed on the event and Front Gate Tickets websites (https://www.iiipoints.com/travel/location and https://iiipoints.frontgatetickets.com), and the promoter and creator of the event, David Sinopoli, confirmed it on his IG account yesterday.

                        Apparently The Marias will be added to the lineup tomorrow from David Sinopoli's IG.

                        Update: The Marias have indeed been added to the Day 1 lineup.
