III Points Festival

III Points 2014: Winners & Losers

Looking back at last weekend, the second-ever III Points was a real big winner.

It was bigger and more ambitious than its predecessor. Attendance was up -- way up. The move to Soho Studios was the right one. And between Shake Shack, La Latina, and Panther Coffee providing festival-goers with food and drink, there was no reason to ever leave the grounds. (And unlike almost any other festival, III Points 2014 had a very liberal in-and-out policy -- which is a good thing, if you ask me.)

Still some people and things were "winning" bigger than others. And, well, there were some losers in this batch too. So let's look back at III Points and break it down for you.
