There was a healthy bit of confusion last night as day one of III Points kicked off slightly behind schedule thanks to delays from Hurricane Matthew. Because of that, set times were shuffled around, and few — if any — performances started on time in their planned locations.
III Points realizes that disorganization made navigating the festival difficult. And to help make it up to fans who might have been dissatisfied or missed their favorite acts, the festival is offering free admission to Sunday — the final day of III Points — for anyone who bought a Friday ticket.
Attendees simply have to show up with their Friday tickets, and they will be honored.
Sunday boasts a stellar lineup, with scheduled performances by Earl Sweatshirt, Flying Lotus, Denzel Curry, M83, and others. So if you thought your III Points experience was over, think again.
