Summer Set Lineup Officially Released
Earlier this week, we caught a glimpse of a Snapchat screen shot that caught a few eyes. It was the potential lineup for this year’s 4th annual Summer Set Music & Camping festival. Well, the rumors were around 99% true! Give or take a few names on the blurry photo we got a hold of, the headliners for this year are confirmed to be Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, Deadmau5 and The Weeknd!
Each year, Summer Set continues to raise the bar and make a name for itself. Even though some may think the festival is in the middle of nowhere (which it kind of is), each year this underrated festival brings some of the biggest names in music. With hip hop legends like Nas, Big Boi, Common and Wu Tang gracing the flyer the past few years, it’s only fitting that hip hop continues to be a focus with Action Bronson and all the original members of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony!
Big Gigantic has been with Summer Set since its start, and they show no intention of going anywhere. This duo manages to up the ante each year, so this year should be another one to bring the house down. While it’s rare for a festival to bring 2 headliners back in a row, Bassnectar mentioned last year that the sound at Summer Set was better than he’d seen in a while, so of course his crew wants to bring his bass nectar to the Midwest one more time. Deadmau5, yes that deadmau5, is an unexpected addition to this year’s lineup, but as mentioned in one of his recent Tweets, he seemed to imply that the smaller setting of Somerset, WI was more appealing to him than EDC, and we’re happy to hear.
The entire lineup this year is phenomenal, not just the headliners. As usual, the great local talent from the area will be there to set the stage for what is to come. The creators of Summer Set love to get feedback from their fans, so based on what fans told them last year they’ve made a few necessary changes. Yet again, another stage will be added this year geared towards live acts called A Live One. The grounds will again expand to make room for the inevitable boost in ticket sales this year. Speaking of ticket sales, as with every year Summer Set is one of the most affordable 3-day camp out festivals out there, and the fans have asked for lower camping prices and the creators have listened! 3-day passes start at $150 + fees and camping is now only $99/site. VIP packages are also available for those who like to live the high life. Check out the official lineup announcement and scoop your tickets today before they sell out!
