Counterpoint Music & Arts Festival to Debut This Fall

C3 Presents and MCP Presents—the promoters of Lollapalooza and Camp Bisco respectively—have teamed up for the new Counterpoint Music & Arts festival. The inaugural event is set to take place in Atlanta, GA’s September 28-29. The new two-day, multi-stage festival will be held at the location of MCP Presents’ 2007 fest The Echo Project, just south of metropolitan Atlanta.

In addition to the musical lineup, the festival will also offer an arts village, extreme sports demonstrations, a beer garden featuring local breweries, a food truck component, local chefs, and a college football viewing area.

“As the Southeast’s beacon of culture and diversity, Atlanta is the ideal location to launch CounterPoint,” states CounterPoint Co-Producer and MCP Partner Brett Keber. “We are partnering with local vendors, restaurants, chefs, breweries, artists and musicians in order to create a world-class event that is also uniquely Atlanta.”

The lineup of performers along with ticketing details are said to be announced in the coming weeks. Visit the Counterpoint Festival website for more information.

Glad to hear the news, Echo Project was great in 2007! I was pretty bummed when they didn’t come back the next year. It’s about time someone stepped up and made this happen. I look forward to seeing the line-up, and if it’s anything like Echo’s in 07’ I’ll be seeing y’all in September! – BV
