Hidden away in the heart of Wynwood this weekend, a small city sprang to life each night inside the walls of Mana Wynwood!  The iii Points Festival was back; every minute filled with music, art and excitement!

Packed inside the yard and warehouse were five different stages, hosting a variety of musicians and sonic styles.  From DJs and electronic artists to 2 piece garage bands, there were live sets catering to just about every musical taste!

The layout of the compound brings new surprises around every turn.  There is "The Ship", an audio installation by famed Roxy Music artist Brian Eno.  Are you hungry?  There's the Burger Boss.  There's Coyo Taco.  Need your tape tightened?  There's even a full service salon operating on site!

As the weekend progressed, new offerings presented themselves one by one.  The hordes of fans kept coming at all hours: iii Points doesn't start until 5 p.m and the gates don't close until 5 a.m!  The growing popularity of the festival is presenting some challenges in terms of getting in and out: traffic on the narrow side streets of Wynwood stretched for blocks.  But for fans, it was a small price to pay to experience hours of incredible live music!  Get your tickets early next year!
