"It's been way better than we expected this year," said Aileen Quintana, a local performance artist with her very own installation at the festival. "The acts are really giving it their all for each performance."

With expectations exceeded, fans seemed blissed out as they gathered for day two of III Points 2014 at Wynwood's Soho Studios. However, their mad chillness could also have been related to the heavy smell of pot wafting from the crowd, just a stone's throw from Miami-Dade Police Department squad cars.

Yes, music, art, and tech ... But weed was also very much at the center of the evening's festivities.

After Friday's show-stopping Hercules & Love Affair set, festival-goers were left wondering how Saturday's lineup would compare.

And admittedly, though last night was a slow build, the intensity of the evening rose and rose and rose, starting with Chet Faker, progressing through indie darlings Metronomy and Norwegian sensation Cashmere Cat, before peaking with headliner Jaime xx.
