If you've attended III Points since year one, you know how integral LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy has been to the festival's success. He DJ'ed the first year when the event's fate was still very uncertain. Of course, there was also the time Murphy was supposed to perform as LCD Soundsystem in 2016 but was forced to cancel the band's appearance after a near-scare from Hurricane Matthew.
Well, finally, the dance-punk legend is set to return to III Points for a DJ set. According to the festival, Murphy will be spinning at the Mainframe stage Saturday night.
Though the idea of a DJ set by a live performer can seem disappointing, Murphy is pretty adept behind the decks. That talent, combined with his deep knowledge of music, guarantees a four-to-the-floor set that will keep the crowd dancing.

Along with Murphy, other late additions to the bill include Eclair Fifi, Twelve'Len, Arthur Baker, Otto Von Schirach, Acoqui, Richie Hell, Chaim, Jeremy Ismael, Nonotak: Eclipse, and Morgan Bryson.
The festival has also announced the return of Skate Space, the skating-rink stage that debuted in 2015. This year, collectives Space Tapes, Internet Friends, and Bermuda Triangle will take turns commanding the stage throughout the weekend.
On the art side, the festival grounds will offers installations by Motorefisico, Hybycozo, Brian Butler, Haiiileen, Mokibaby, Luis Pinto, and others. The highlight, though, will be "Aether," a work by musician Max Cooper and Architecture Social Club in partnership with Heineken. III Points is also partnering once again with the Institute of Contemporary Art to present a video-based exhibition by feminist icon Judy Chicago.
