The first annual CounterPoint Festival is taking place September 27-29 on a 350–acre farm in Fairburn, GA. The three-day music festival zeros in on the multiple genres within the electronic music scene.
It will feature headliners such as Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Skrillex, M83 and Crystal Castles along with several local stalwarts in the dance, hip hip and chillwave circles. Atlanta’s Big Boi and Washed Out with perform sets as well as Athens, GA upstarts Reptar. Former Atlanta resident, Treasure Fingers, will also be included in the lineup.
The lush, riverfront setting will provide camping, an arts village, local chefs, a beer garden featuring local breweries, and several food trucks. The multistage festival marks the first partnership between C3 Presents and MCP Presents. The two companies have produced several festivals; C3 has produced Austin City Limits Festival and Lollapalooza, while MCP has been responsible for such festivals as Camp Bisco, The Buku Project, Lights All Night and The Echo Project.
