III Points will be holding the fifth edition of the festival in Miami on October 12-14. The festival will showcase a vast range of music and art for attendees to enjoy the entire weekend. III Points has become synonymous with quality electronic music. The people behind the festival are not afraid to make ambitious bookings and allowing artists they admire to showcase their talents in primetime and headlining slots. One artist that III Points believed was headliner-worthy was Nicolas Jaar. Jaar is returning to headline III Points for a second time after topping the bill in 2015. The DJ gained fame for his lengthy sets consisting of multiple genres of music. One half of the group Darkside, who’s 2013 album Psychic was one of the most critically acclaimed projects of the year, Jaar has returned to solo work in recent years. Coming off his fantastic 2016 album Sirens, Jaar is returning to III Points to deliver another set that will surely have anyone who attends in awe.
His headlining set in 2015 is considered legendary among those who attended the festival that year. He played for over three hours, and no genre of music was considered off limits. Consisting of dark techno, gospel samples and experimental, among others, Jaar displayed the range he has a musician. When watching Jaar perform, it is impossible to not dance the night away. He is able to completely control the crowd with his groovy beats that he switches between up-tempo and downtempo in seconds. No two Nico Jaar sets are ever the same, and the range of material he has to choose from would guarantee even his biggest fans would get to hear something new when seeing him live.
