Counterpoint music festival announces daily schedule


Free access to myAJC for AJC subscribers.


If you need to make plans for Counterpoint weekend, festival organizers have released the daily set times.

No surprise that Outkast lands the prestigious closing slot on Sunday, April 27, and will perform from 10-11:30 p.m.

In addition to previously announced Counterpoint info (which you can check out here), the fest will also stage morning yoga sessions (10-11 a.m., so the late-night revelers don’t need to awaken at the crack of dawn) with yogi Nick Atlas.

Games (Bocce, Cornhole and giant Jenga), daily costume competitions and a “Pimp Your Campsite” challenge will give attendees some non-musical options.

Also this year, Counterpoint has partnered with the Scratch DJ Academy – which recently opened an Atlanta branch – to provide educational workshops and quick, hands-on lessons with instructors from 1-5 p.m. April 26 and 27. 

A limited number of weekend passes ($199 for three days GA and $224 GA with camping) and single day tickets ($90 per day) remain available at the festival’s final ticket price.  VIP, camping and $20 pre-party passes (for the Thursday kick-off event) are also available.  More information on all the ticketing and camping options can be found at  Questions, comments or concerns regarding orders, please contact Front Gate Tickets or by phone, 888-512-74699 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
