Next month, on December 3, Miami will go into Art Basel mode, jamming as much art, music, and alcohol into this city as possible. While Art Basel itself is an annual art show that takes place at the Miami Beach Convention Center — what Art Basel really means to most locals is parties and free wine.
Oh, and some music, too. Like, a lot of really good music.
You might still be recovering from last month's III Points, but the festival isn't done with you yet. This year, as part of their annual Art Basel Concert Series, III Points is returning to Mana Wynwood on December 4 with headliners Jamie xx and Four Tet.
Last year's III Points Art Basel Series took place at YoungArts and included FKA twigs, Clams Casino, James Blake, Airhead, SBTRKT, and A$AP Ferg.
Each year, Basel brings bigger and brighter names to town. Musicians from Miley Cyrus to Kendrick Lamar have visited Miami for Basel in the past. Usher even charged his phone in a woman's vagina last year.
In addition to the show on December 4, III Points will also team with PL0T to host a showcase for the label Life and Death with artists Tale Of Us, Mind Against, Thugfucker, and special guest Richie Hawtin on Thursday, December 3, at Mana Wynwood.
Tickets for that event cost $15 to $80 depending on when you buy them (the earlier the cheaper), and are available via residentadvisor.net.
