Skrillex kicking off the show with a bang at Counterpoint
This past weekend, the Grooveshark team set out on a mission to divide and conquer. Joined by our friends at Bacardi+, we hopped on a plane out of NYC, loaded up the RV from Gainesville, FL and headed out to two US cities that were hosting some of the best acts in live entertainment the music industry has to offer. Over the course of 3 days, we had teams stationed in Atlanta and Cincinnati delivering music lovers everything from beverages to beach balls at both the Counterpoint and Midpoint Music Festivals.
After some exhaustive engine troubles with the RV, our team safely made our way up to Atlanta to set up the event’s media tent with Bacardi+. Equipped with free wifi, listening stations, outlets and over 2000 cans of Bacardi+, the media tent was the perfect place for journalists, bloggers, photographers and artists to hang out and take a break from the heat.

Though an insane storm nearly washed out all of Saturday’s festivities, it was amazing to see how creative the festival goers were that managed to receive some cool Grooveshark Gear. The beach balls and frisbees that coated the air the day prior became the perfect makeshift umbrellas for some of the attendees that stocked up on all of the free items we gave out.

With a garnered reputation for featuring the hottest up-and-coming acts, over 30,000 attendees came out to the 11th installment of Midpoint Music Fest. Showcasing acts such as Grizzly Bear, Pujol and The Walkmen, the Grooveshark team along with Bacardi+ had the pleasure of hosting the in-door media lounge for the event’s VIPs.

From 5pm-11pm daily, we once again provided the central hub for artists, media professionals, and VIP’s to relax and enjoy some free wifi, recharge their devices, and enjoy complimentary Bicardi+ while grabbing tons of Grooveshark Gear.
