In 2014, the CounterPoint Music and Arts Festival attracted an estimated 65,000 people to Kingston Downs over the course of a three-day weekend at the end of April.

Organizers hope the 2015 edition of CounterPoint will bring even more music fans to their event in just a few months.

Billing itself as the "South's most exciting Memorial Day Weekend party," CounterPoint will bring headliners Widespread Panic, Zedd, The Roots, Kygo, Knife Party, Umphrey's McGee and Dillon Francis to Georgia, Memorial Day weekend. Also on the lineup are Zeds Dead, Joe Russo's Almost Dead, Rebelution, RL Grime, Lettuce, Tipper and many more on four performance stages.

Three-day passes are now on-sale, starting at $175. VIP passes start at $375.

Several camping areas will have exciting new amenities at this year's festival, including a BBQ Grilling Area, picnic tables, and the Hammock Zone. The CounterPoint RV Park, which offers dedicated location for patrons to park their recreation vehicles, with plenty of space to hang out and enjoy the weekend, will feature a variety of yard games. Glamping is also an amazing option, offering Safari-Style Glamping Tents equipped with incredible amenities, including real beds or cots for up to 4 people.

If patrons are unable to camp, CounterPoint's round trip shuttles will be available to-and-from Atlanta on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, offering a safe and reliable mode of transportation.

New in 2015, all patrons will have access to The Midway, which will feature carnival rides, a game center, Arts Village, art installations, free water stations, covered seating and dining area at the Kingston Downs Food Court, as well as the Midway Stage, which will include morning yoga and various workshops during the day. In addition, the Silent Disco will feature top tier talent and twice the headsets for an even more spectacular dance party.

CounterPoint is organized jointly by concert promoters MCP Presents and C3 Presents.
