Summer Set music festival announces 2016 lineup


Summer Set Music & Camping Festival is back for 2016, and the three-day festival's organizers have announced the preliminary lineup. The event takes place August 12-14 in Somerset, Wisconsin, which is 35 miles northeast of the Twin Cities.

Summer Set's 2016 iteration is being billed as the festival's 5th anniversary in their location on the grounds of the Somerset Amphitheater. According a press release from Summer Set, their festival attracted 20,000 fans a day and hosted 70 acts in 2015.

The festival's diverse list of headliners include EDM artists Skrillex, Bassnectar, and Steve Aoki bumping elbows with rappers like Fetty Wap, Logic and the Chicago-based live hip-hop band the Social Experiment backing Chance the Rapper. Throw in a dash of indie-leaning pop from Grimes, Cherub, and St. Lucia and a few jam icons like STS9, and you've got the makings of an eclectic weekend of music before the full lineup has even been announced.

Tickets for the festival are available at Summer Set's website.
