3 points lineup....

If you really want to see Gorillaz, you are better off going to ACL instead. In fact the ACL tix are only $50 more expensive than 3 points, which illustrates how much of a rip off 3 points is.

Gorillaz is Alvin & the Chipmunks for the too-cool-for-school crowd.

Flights are cheap to Austin, plus you'll get treated like a human being at the hotel before Alvin goes on stage.

What a weak lineup. I hope iiiPoints has some surprise last minute headliner or guests.

Past lineups have been much, much better

3 Points is appropriately named since I only know 3 of the acts.

Yeah. The lineup is weak sauce. Do people really pay that much money to see local acts, and 2 or 3 big headliners?

Re: 3 points lineup....

I dont get it. I understand that Miami is apparently known for its glitz, glamour and outlandish clubs with ultra vip.

But, the prices for this weak festival is outrageous. Are tickets selling like hot cakes for this?

I hope the organizers of this festival learn from the mistakes that the Frye Festival made.

Well, for Miamians, I'm not sure that works out. Only 5 tix left at $345!

So, now you are up about $400 over 3 Points. Plus, hotels are fuck-all high that week, just like during WMC here. So, stay a week and say $200 a night is another $1400. I mean, if I was an Austinian, hell yeah I'd go to ACL before 3 Points. I guess for people who are non-local to both cities, it would be a different choice. Then again, I'm not sure that 3 Points is really looking to attract tourists, I always got the impression it was more a locals festival for locals by locals.
