Hours of op­er­a­tion

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - COMING UP -

The three- day fes­ti­val runs from Fri­day to Sun­day. Doors will be open from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. Fri­day and Satur­day, and from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sun­day.

Lo­cal lineup

While Si­nop­oli says his list is al­ways chang­ing, some of his fa­vorite lo­cal acts in­clude Virgo, Holly Hunt and Jacuzzi Boys, who he says are a “sure bet if you want to go see an amaz­ing band that should be at one of the main stages of any other fes­ti­val.” He also says Deaf Po­ets are “a world-class rock ’n’ roll band that’s yet to be dis­cov­ered by the rest of the world,” and that some of these bands are “at a point in their ca­reer right be­fore they’re about to blow up.”

Party peo­ple from Link Mi­ami Rebels, Elec­tric Pickle, and Slap & Tickle will take over some of the stages and high­light their lo­cal tal­ent, too.

Vir­tual re­al­ity

III Points in­cor­po­rated vir­tual re­al­ity in a mas­sive way last year with Mars 2030. The fes­ti­val part­nered with NASA for an ex­pe­ri­ence that al­lowed users to feel like as­tro­nauts ex­plor­ing the red planet. This year, Si­nop­oli says vir­tual re­al­ity will be in­te­grated in more of an ironic way, with in­stal­la­tions such as VRP. The VRP will feel like a roped-off VIP sec­tion with bot­tle ser­vice, bounc­ers and, of course, the VR head­set.
