We are inching closer and closer to Wisconsin’s biggest EDM festival; Summer Set. Now within a month’s reach, the fourth annual Summer Set Music Festival returns to its home in Summer Set, Wisconsin August 14th and carries through the 16th. With headlining acts Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, Deadmau5 and The Weeknd this is one festival you have to attend. Along with the headliners, supporting acts Die Antwoord, G-Eazy, Jauz, Odesza, Zeds Dead and many more will also be in attendance. Covering a wide array of genres, you can find exactly what you are looking for at this festival. If you have yet to purchase your ticket and camping, I recommend doing so now. With such a diverse lineup and a Midwest festival as popular as Summer Set, tickets are not guaranteed to last. Having already sold out of the South Prairie campsites and duel day after party tickets, festival tickets may be coming scarce.
Catering to different price ranges and luxuries, Summer Set provides four different camping options for their guests. North Hills, the basic tent only option is an affordable route to go. Allowing six people per site North Hills cost approximately $20 per person. South Prairie, an early entry campground with preferred parking, has now sold out. It too camps up to six people and costs each guest $39. If camping isn’t for you, RV camping is available as well. This option comes with extra benefits such as an electricity hookup, private entrance, access to showers and more. Costing each guest $78, the amenities are convenient. Lastly, if you are looking for the ultimate experience The Woods VIP experience is the way to go. For $498 not only is your ticket included, you also get early entry to the campgrounds starting at 4pm Thursday, preferred parking next to your shaded campsite, access to VIP only showers and restrooms, snacks and beverages, happy hour, special viewing areas at the Main and Grove Stage and even access to the after parties.
Considering music ends at midnight Friday and Saturday and ending earlier on Sunday, Summer Set hosts two affordable after parties you can continue your Friday and Saturday night until 2:30 am. Friday you can get the funk down with Griz and special guest Hawyre. The returning Floozies and supporting act Tone Loc will be closing out Saturday. If I have learned anything from my music festival experience, you do not miss an after party; you never know what surprises could be in store. For those who purchased early, there was an option to buy a dual night pass allowing them to attend both after parties for $35 after fees saving them $15. Though that option is now sold out, you can grab your tickets on the Summer Set website for a mere $25 each night after fees. Get them now before they are gone!
Less than 30 days away, we anxiously wait until we arrive back in Summer Set. With the full schedule announcement coming tomorrow, be ready to start planning out your weekend. Grab your tickets, your campsite, your friends and your gear and join us at Summer Set this year, you won’t want to miss this!
