Many fans in the Southeast are getting geared up for a visit from Phish this weekend, but the folks into the jamtronica, EDM and DJ scene are also anxiously awaiting the inaugural Counter.Point Music Festival, which takes place September 27 to 29 in Fairburn, GA – about 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Earlier today, C3 Presents (Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza) and MCP Presents (Camp Bisco) announced the daily lineup of bands that will transform nearly 8,000 acres of Georgia farmland into the biggest party in the South for one weekend. Check out the entire day-by-day band lineup on their official website.
Thursday’s lineup is headlined by Big Gigantic, who will be heading back to their home state of Colorado to headline Rowdytown at Red Rocks later that weekend. Other acts on Thursday include Beats Antique, Up Until Now (with special guest David Murphy of STS9), Run DMT and more.
Friday’s schedule includes a diverse lineup including headliners Bassnectar and AVICII. French shoegaze electronica six-piece M83 and Brooklyn-born rapper and fashion icon Theophilus London also perform on Friday, along with MiM0SA, Dr. Fameus and Crystal Castles.
Saturday’s lineup brings the heat with Skrillex and Pretty Lights, Philly-based Lotus, Atlanta native hip-hop mogul Big Boi, Austin synth-pop duo Ghostland Observatory, Southern electro-rockers Zoogma and Pretty Lights Music labelmates Paper Diamond and Michael Menert. Other notable acts include Conspirator, Steve Angelo, Porter Robinson, Zeds Dead and many others.
The festival also announced that single-day general admission and VIP tickets are being made available in addition to the three-day general admission, VIP and Platinum passes that have been on sale for the last few months. Single-day and three-day tickets are available on Counter.Point’s website. The fest, which will be held at the same location as 2007’s The Echo Project, will also house an arts village, extreme sports demonstrations, a beer garden, local food and drink vendors and a college football viewing area.
