Hours of operation
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.
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.

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.
