Counterpoint Releases Official Lineup, Talks Amenities

Counterpoint Music and Arts Festival just announced its official lineup - a bill whose EDM acts include the likes of Zedd, Kygo, Knife Party and Dillon Francis. The festival’s third annual installment will take place from May 22nd-24th and will return to Kingston Downs,GA, which is located just north of Atlanta. The festival will differ from past years after promising to adhere to new guidelines in the wake of last year’s noise complaints.

In addition to the lineup, the festival also announced a BBQ grilling area, picnic tables, a “Hammock Zone” and yard games. Those that plan to stay over night at the festival can also take advantage of CP's glamping, a lodging option in which attendees rent safari-style tents with actual beds among other amenities.

The lineup comes with a handful of critisims from past attendees who dismayed by the festival's evolving taste, which welcomed jam acts such as Widespread Panic, Umphree's McGee and Galactic. Despite the feedback, Counterpoint organizers had stated since it's 2012 inception that the music was not exclusively electronitc, but would flex and adapt to the common tastes of festival-goers.  

Advanced tickets to the three day festival can be purchased here for a slim $175, although this prize will rise as time goes on.
