Summer Set Music & Camping Festival – August 24, 25 and 26

Close summer out with the inaugural Summer Set Music & Camping Festival in Somerset Wisconsin, located just outside the beautiful Minneapolis/St Paul metropolitan area.

Be prepared for a great time, rain or shine. Enjoy gorgeous countryside, lazy rivers, and of course, the finest music from artists spanning all genres, from jam bands to indie rock to hip hop to dance music. This inaugural year features headliners Pretty Lights, Umphrey’s McGee, and Big Gigantic, with NaS, Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), MSTRKRFT, Claude VonStroke, and over 40 more artists.

Held on three stages, with dance music parties happening inside a 3,000 capacity hockey rink on the grounds and a lazy river bordering the festival, Summer Set Music & Camping Festival is setting a new standard for festivals in the Midwest. Tickets are available for individual days and re-entry is permitted with your wristband. A lengthy list of what is and is not permitted can be found on their FAQ section.

If you want to be sure not to miss any of the action, Summer Set recommends camping, which is first come first serve. When purchasing your campsite permit, you must also purchase your tickets for the festival (they are sold separately). VIP campers are required to buy VIP tickets. For detailed information on camping options and rules, visit the Camping/Lodging section.

Most important is the music! Saturday is AraabMuzik, NAS, Bingo Players, and MSTRKRFT. For the adventurous, there are after parties (tickets sold separately) going late into the night.
