Summer Set Festival

Summer Set Music & Camping Festival (SSMF) is approaching it’s fifth year celebrating a weekend of alternative music, taking place August 12-14 at the beautiful Somerset Amphitheater in Northern Wisconsin. Known for showcasing an eclectic mix of pop, hip-hop, indie, and jam-style artists alongside some of electronic dance music’s most sought after producers and DJs, Summer Set provides an unparalleled experience and continues to deliver a legendary and diverse lineup year after year.

In 2015, the 3-day festival attracted 20,000 fans each day and featured four massive headliners including The Weeknd, Deadmau5, Bassnectar, and Big Gigantic, along with 70+ artists.

This year’s headliner’s include a man who broke underground dubstep into daytime radio. Formerly known as the front man for emo band From First To Last, now currently an eight-time Grammy-Award Winning DJ/Producer, SKRILLEX.

Rounding out the headlining acts are Canadian singer/songwriter GRIMES in support of her latest album Art Angel


A man especially known to throw cake during his performances, STEVE AOKI will be gracing us with his presence. (Confetti cake with vanilla frosting please.)


A crowd favorite Maryland-raised rapper who took the Mac supported DAW name and ran with it, LOGIC will likely be performing tracks from his most recent mix tape Bobby Tarantino, along with others from his previous releases.


Also joining the list are an anonymous new trap and future-bass producer MARSHMELLO, the New Jersey singer-rapper hybrid behind “Trap Queen” – FETTY WAP, instrumental electronic rock ensemble SOUND TRIBE SECTOR 9 (STS9), and up-and-comer R&B rapper TORY LANEZ. Infusing their funky electronic beats with live instrumentals are the electro-indie duo CHERUB, along with the genre-spanning performances of GRAMATIK.


Other notable acts include DJ MUSTARD, who was named 2015’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songwriter Of and Producer Of The Year at the BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards, indie synth-pop band ST.LUCIA, pop electronica musician/producer ALISON WONDERLAND, Circus Records co-founder FLUX PAVILION, Brooklyn-based rap group FLATBUSH ZOMBIES who are riding high off their recent debut album, 3001: A Laced Odyssey, Australian alternative dance trio RÜFÜS DU SOL, Mad Decent multi-genre prodigy NGHTMRE, and more!
