Details have been emerging for the CounterPoint Music Festival, a new three day festival set to take place south of Atlanta. The lineup (see the fullÂ caboodleÂ below) will be mostly electronic, featuring headliners like Bassnectar, Skrillex, Pretty Lights, AVICII, and Steve Angello. The show is set for September 27-29, 2012.
This is quite a different lineup from the Echo Project which happened at the same location back in 2007 and featured big names like The Flaming Lips, Common, and The Roots. Attendence was low for the event and the Echo Project never really took off. That was five years ago, however, and the music festival landscape now dominates the live music landscape. And for the time being, electronic heavy artists are drawing the crowds.
Tickets are now on sale for $165-$185 for a three day pass. There is camping at CounterPoint for only $15 extra.
