Summer is beginning to wind down a little bit, but that doesn't mean that the summer festivals are even close to being over. It's about time that we give more shed some more light on a festival we are more then excited for.. Summer Set Music & Camping Festival taking place in Somerset, Wisconsin August 24-26th and looks to be another epic camping festival. The lineup and atmosphere remind me alot of Electric Forest, and that's a great thing considering it was one of our favorite festivals of the year. Right on the balanceo of big enough to have an epic lineup, but not too big to be annoying like Ultra or Coachella.
The festival features a HUGE lineup featuring some of the best electronic and hip hop and jam bands around all for 3 nights of madness. The headliners include Pretty Lights, Big Gigantic, and Umphree's McGee. Other huge names on the lineup include hip hop stars Nas and Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), indie duo Matt and Kim, on top of Zeds Dead, Excision, Lotus, Mimosa, MSTRKRFT, Rebelution, RJD2 / Break Science, Paper Diamond, GRiZ, Two Fresh, Pantyraid, Bingo Players, Timeflies,Cherub, Bassjackers, and so many more!
