The What, Who, When, Where, and Why for the festival!
SSMF is entering it’s 5th year and has become a staple for music festivals in Midwest. The main stage is built inside of the Somerset amphitheater which, as you can guess, makes for awesome acoustics. Guests can camp on site at multiple different camp sites or choose from a variety of customized hotel/ticket combos (only available at Unity.Travel).
Summer Set is known for providing an amazing and diverse lineup of artists ranging from a variety of dance music genres. If you’re a music lover, this festival is definitely for you!
Ever heard of a little event called Spring Awakening?? (it’s actually not little, it HUGE!) Well the same promoter that brings that massive event to Chicago also handles Summer Set. We’re talking about React Presents!
We’ve had the opportunity to work closely with React over the past couple years, and they have a killer team. These guys and gals understand what it takes to make an event pop off!
Summer time in Wisconsin is known for being quite exceptional, and Summer Set happens right in the middle of it (8/12-8/14). The festival takes place during the afternoon and runs all the way to the early hours of the morning. The sunset is going to be killer and the late hours extraordinary.
One word of caution: Although Wisconsin summers are gorgeous, there are a few things to watch out for. It will be very humid and there will be some serious bug action going on. Plan to drink water and pack the Deet!
The festival grounds are amazing! The main stage is going to be built right inside the Somerset amphitheater which will make for great acoustics. Many of the stages have been built with concrete for the dance floor and there will be plenty of water stations and bathrooms.
This event takes place pretty close to the middle of nowhere in a town called Somerset, WI. The venue is AMAZING, but there isn’t anything but farms and fields nearby. Summer Set is a camping festival and there are multiple campgounds to choose from.
If you are not the camping type, then there are specialty hotel packages available for the event. You are going to want to stay in one of the nearby cities and consider taking a shuttle to/from the event. For a list of hotel, shuttle, and ticket combo options, check out our packages here.
Travelers Secret: Plan to eat at the festival and if you want beer for your hotel room than pick it up early. Wisconsin doesn’t sell liquor past 9pm and beer closes at midnight. Also, many restaurants are not open past 9-11 pm.
Look at the lineup! Need we say more??? Seriously, the Summer Set lineup is one of the most unique collection of artists that you are going to find at any festival in the country. A prefect blend of dance music, hip hop, and indie genres that are going to be great for expanding your music palette.
You should 100% attend Summer Set and plan on going year after year!
