Also new to the fall festival is the addition of special label curated tents. The tents are hosted by the Electro/Hip-Hop/Soul label Pretty Lights Music and A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs' label Fools Gold Records. The Pretty Lights Music Tent will be showcasing up-and-coming DJs from the label, including: Paul Basic, SuperVision, Michal Menert, and Gramatik. Label namesake, Pretty Lights, will be a part of CounterPoint's Main Stage lineup.

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."
