Rockin’ and Rollin’

Arts, Miami

Faena Art added a touch of disco to Miami’s popular III Points independent music festival in February with an artist-designed roller skating rink open to the public.

The sixth annual III Points festival held at Mana Wynwood each year is known for creating a sensory party that combines music, art and technology, while blending a wide range of genres, everything from indie rock to neo-soul and punk to electronica.

As a locally built and funded festival, our mission is to be a platform for our homegrown community of artists and bring like minded bands to Miami who wouldn’t come otherwise

—festival co-founder, David Sinopoli.

Faena Art added a touch of disco to Miami’s popular III Points independent music festival past February with an artist-designed roller skating rink open to the public. After the success of Faena Forum‘ s Second Sunday series, which featured ángeles veloces arcanos fugaces, an immersive, participatory and site-specific art installation created by artist duo assume vivid astro focus (avaf) that reimagines the traditional roller dancing rink, Faena Art brought the neo-disco rink to the three-day music festival. Designed as a hub to knit the community together, the rink will be free for festival goers and skates will be provided. Live musical performances, DJ sets, roller dancing classes and a host of surrounding interactive art installations will add a vibrant dose of Faena-style to the festival.
