This is Austin writing, and I posted this review under my name to maintain anonymity of the author of this review. I want to thank (redacted) for taking the time to write up CounterPoint Music Festival so thoroughly. I will also say that the text messages exchanged between (redacted) and myself over the course of this weekend will forever bring a smile to my face. Unfortunately, many of the readers of this site know my friend and know he went to this festival, so absolute transparency is not the best policy. After (redacted) sparkling review, I hope to attend next year and get my weird on as well. And as a disclaimer, the title of this article was provided by me. Enjoy.

When you throw together 20,000+ people, 350 acres of beautiful landscape, and 70+ musical acts, the majority of which being electronic, you get a big bucket of weird. This is what I learned last weekend at the first ever CounterPoint Festival outside of Atlanta, GA. I know the typical post on here isn’t electronic music related so I’ll just try to describe the setting and hit the high points of each day.
