Summer Set Music and Camping festival just dropped the 2017 lineup

The festival is making a hard pivot towards its EDM roots this year.

Summer Set Music and Camping Festival just released the lineup for its sixth season.

This year's crop of artists sees the festival set just over the border in Somerset, Wisconsin, pivoting towards its EDM roots.

Summer Set's top acts include Canadian bass/dubstep duo Zeds Dead, dance-pop DJ Zedd, and Detroit electro-funk producer GRiZ, who will anchor Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, respectively.

Down the lineup, hip-hop fans should be excited for another chance to see indomitable rap duo Run the Jewels, who came through on tour earlier this year, along with boundary-shattering rapper-singer Post Malone and Afrikans weirdos Die Andwoord.

The rest of the weekend is a veritable who's-who of EDM talent, from ZOMBOY to SLUSHII to beatmaker RL Grime.

Summer Set has retained last year's popular all-in-one ticketing option that allow fans to lock-in their ticket and camp site in one purchase, and as always, more after parties and single day tickets will be available as the festival draws near. Tickets are available now through Summer Set's website.
