Outkast, J. Cole headline CounterPoint 3-day fest

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Outkast returns to their home state this weekend to perform at the CounterPoint Music & Arts Festival in suburban Atlanta.

More than 60 artists are expected to perform at CounterPoint, which kicked off Friday and continues through Sunday.

The three-day music event is in Kingston Downs, about 60 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta.

Other headliners include J. Cole, Pretty Lights, Janelle Monae and Foster the People. Performances are on five stages.

Outkast performs Sunday night. It's their second stop of a 40-date tour after reuniting for the first time in 10 years at the Coachella music festival two weeks ago.

The Grammy-winning rap duo consists of Andre "Andre 3000" Benjamin and Antwan "Big Boi" Patton. They are celebrating the group's 20th anniversary.
