III Points is always known for having a trick or two up their sleeve when it comes to headliners. Last year, we had LCD Soundsystem. The year prior was the virtual performance of MF Doom, along with Ghostface Killah. However, this year just may be the most surprising, jaw-dropping artist announcement the festival has ever had.
Playing for the first time ever in Miami, III Points will be welcoming Gorillaz. In addition to this grandiose announcement, Gorillaz announced their Humanz North American tour. The tour will be starting in July and ending with in October with III Points.
The animated group of primates will also be releasing their fifth album, Humanz, on April 28, 2017.
Tickets for III Points come out on April 21 at iiipoints.com. The full lineup should be released sometime in May.
