Chance the Rapper, Charlie XCX, Die Antwoord, Halsey, Lupita Nyong’o, legendary supermodel Iman, Chloë Sevigny and Rosario Dawson all in attendance. Hosted at Pier 36, enlisting Jean-Paul Goude as creative director and the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band and a cast of dancers to give the show the feeling of an art-school pep rally.
The Five Points Festival is a collision of toys, comics, and counterculture curated by Clutter Magazine and presented by Midtown Comics. A designer toy and comic convention in New York’s Lower East Side, Five Points is two days and nights of comic artists and writers, vinyl and plastic toys, original art, resin, plush, blind boxes, graphic novels, indie comics, blanks, minis, kaiju, Japanese vinyl, posters, prints, apparel, food trucks, and craft breweries – capped off by the 2017 Designer Toy Awards. The antidote to the average con, Five Points brings tastemakers, misfits, and rebels together with the new, retro, and infamous in a one-of-a-kind marketplace.
