FESTY NEWS: Counterpoint Sports Eclectic Lineup

Memorial Day weekend will be hot in Georgia this year as the Counterpoint Music and Arts Festival launches us into summer.

Situated in the northwest corner of the Peach State, Kingston Downs plays host to the eclectic group of musicians coming together for Counterpoint. Headlining acts range from jam staple Widespread Panic to hip hop band The Roots and European DJs Zedd and Kygo. Deadheads can begin their Golden Summer with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and Umphrey’s McGee will leave Summer Camp a day early to play Counterpoint on Sunday. Coming off huge years, New York based Tauk and Lettuce will also join the party. Papadosio and Galactic add to the jam-end of the spectrum while DJs Dillon Francis and Tipper represent the electronic genre.

Counterpoint Festival is camping optional. In addition to three stages for music, there will be art exhibits and interactive activities. More information on the festival can be found here. Tickets can be purchased here.
