Fools Gold Records will show off another edition of “Fools Gold Clubhouse” with DJ sets from label co-founders Nick Catchdubs and A-Trak along with Oliver and Treasure Fingers.
“Fools Gold has been throwing parties for as long as we’ve been releasing records,” Nick Catchdubs said. “We designed our festival stages so we could take that feel-good vibe on the road. It will be especially fun to bring the Clubhouse to a brand-new festival like CounterPoint, where we get to be the pioneers of this uncharted territory.”
Three-day general admission advance tickets are on sale for $165. If you throw in camping, the passes are $180. VIP and premium tickets are also available.
Counterpoint is produced by C3 Presents (Austin City Limits Music Festival and Lollapalooza) and MCP Presents (Camp Bisco) in conjunction with promotional partner Liquified.
