Now then, what are you up to on May 22nd-24th? At a pool party jam session at Andre 3000's crib? Kickin it with some ladies and L's at Snoop D-O-double-G's? I didn’t think so. Actually, it's a good thing too, because these events and your mum's birthday are about the only things that should stop you from attending CounterPoint Music & Arts Festival this year. Get in touch with your inner party animal and join the likes of Knife Party, Griz, The Roots, Gorgon City, Dillon Francis, Kygo, Zomboy, and many more as they administer 50 shades of rave upon the pert, sun kissed hills of Kingston Downs, GA.
If you're unaware of what CounterPoint has to offer, here's a short synopsis - I’m talking phat sound systems, dancing nutters, fireworks, lasers... the whole nine yards. What’s more though, alongside the inevitable debauchery, is that you can also look forward to giving your soul a morning rinse in a series of yoga master classes. Perfect your transcendental flying skills in lucid dreaming workshops, or even get involved in some "dynamic detoxifying vinyasa flow" (which coincidentally might be an EDM sub-genre from the year 2027). These awesome hippy-tastic sessions are hosted by Seer ‘Multidimensional Learning for a New Millennium’ and sound like a pretty sweet detour from your average festival fodder to me. I mean, who doesn’t want a beam of enlightenment with their body paint, batty-shaking, and basslines? There’s also a whole bunch of games, activities, and events to get involved in over the weekend and have you grinning from ear to ear with your selected buddy.
