CounterPoint Music Festival is quickly approaching, and what better way to prepare for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend festival than to better acquaint yourself with 5 of the acts that’ll be playing? And since we know you won’t even make it halfway through this list without realizing that you NEED to be at CounterPoint this year, we’ll go ahead and tell you now that you can click HERE to buy tickets, or click HERE to enter to win 2 passes to the festival, camping included.
So what are you waiting for?
1. Knife Party
With their new album Abandon Ship having rocked everyone’s world this past November, it’s no wonder that Knife Party is the first act on this list. Get ready to hear “Boss Mode,” “Give It Up” as well as other classics like “Centipede” this Memorial Day weekend.
Kygo is on FIRE after his first original song, “Firestone,” hit the airwaves, and it’s no wonder why – smooth, chilled out and relaxing tropical house is perfect for any moment during your day, whether you’re driving, reading or just hanging out around the house. Or, more obviously – if you’re at CounterPoint Music Festival this month.
3. Zeds Dead
Hot from the recent release of their Somewhere Else EP, Zeds Dead is one dubstep show you don’t want to miss. If you look around and notice that the stage you’re at is completely empty, then look at your schedule and see that Zeds Dead is playing at the same time…you’ll know where everyone is.
4. Widespread Panic
There’s nothing quite like sitting back and enjoying a jam band on a warm Georgia day, and if you don’t know what we’re talking about then you NEED to see Widespread Panic this Memorial Day weekend. Not only are they renowned for their live performances, but Widespread Panic currently holds the record for number of sold-out performances at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, as well as at Philips Arena in Georgia. If that doesn’t speak to their ability to get down with the crowd, then we don’t know what does.
GRiZ has been taking the EDM world by storm, going from being virtually unknown to an underground sensation almost overnight. Threading saxophone melodies in and out of his tracks, GRiZ’s future-funk style is going to be one of the biggest acts of the weekend, if not THE one to remember.
