Just when you thought they were done, III Points slaps you with another lineup update.
Today, over 30 artists joined the three-day lineup, with the biggest name among them being Vince Staples, who's quite possibly the most-hyped rapper of 2016 — and for good reason.
Keeping the rich tradition of Long Beach hip-hop alive, Staples emerged last year with the critically acclaimed Summertime '06. Since his debut, the 23-year-old artist has continued to build momentum, and his newest EP, Prima Donna, is set to drop this summer, which should give you enough time to get familiar with it before III Points on October 7.
Bedouin, the Brooklyn-based DJ duo comprised of Tamer Malki and Rami Abousabe, will also join the lineup.
Others joining previously announced acts like LCD Soundsystem, M83, and Flying Lotus include: David Marston, Bad Wave, Ronny J, Benton, Gooddroid, Tremends, Copan, Deroboter, Mikey Ramirez, Lautlos, Michelle Leshem, Lofty305 and Ruben Slikk (Metro Zu), Mo’Booty, Twelve Tales, Komakozie, Jean Jacket, Artime, DJ YNOT, Sean Bang, Maure, DJ Heron, Modernage, SIRE, Illsnafu, Eveava, Venus Amor, Nala//Nusi, Puma & Harry, Topher B2B S3x Ed, and Kunal.
