New Festival Alert! Summer Set Music & Camping Festival

The end of August and the end of summer (at least for us Northern Hemisphere festival fans) will be closed out Wisconsin style with the debut of the Summer Set Music & Camping Festival. Streching from August 26-28 in Somerset, Wisconsin, Summer Set will features a 3,000 capacity hockey rink on site for shows and a lazy river (tubing!) that borders the fest.

The lineup includes: Pretty Lights, Umphrey’s McGee, and Big Gigantic, with NaS, Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), MSTRKRFT, Excision, Lotus, Matt & Kim, Timeflies, and Bingo Players with a bunch of others you can check out below. Headliners will perform on a huge outdoor main stage while the hockey rink will be bumping electronic music — including sick late night DJ afterparties. There’s also an additional outdoor stage for regional acts.

Tickets: Lots of options like a three day pass for around $75. See all tickets here.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
