Summer SetSummer Set returns with an even bigger lineup in its fourth year in Somerset, WI.

The blowout EDM-heavy festival returns August 14-16 with powerful names like Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, and the elusive Deadmau5, who has announced only one midwest fest appearance this summer.

On the electronic and jamtronica side of the equation, Carnage, Lotus, Odesza, Purity Ring, Thievery Corporation, Tycho, and ZEDS DEAD loom large, while a special focus is placed on hip-hop and R&B, as always, with The Weeknd, Action Bronson, Die Antwoord, G-Eazy, Earl Sweatshirt, and Badbadnotgood & Ghostface Killah standing out on the bill. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are bringing all the original members to central Wisconsin for a special performance of E.1999 Eternal in its entirety.

Other UNTZ faves on the lineup include Haywyre, KEYS N KRATES, Tchami, Bakermat, Jauz, Trippy Turtle, Manic Focus, Slow Magic, and Vaski also made the cut. Live bands like Lettuce and tUnE-yArDs bring some diversity to the lineup, as well.

Summer Set has listened to fan complaints and addressed things like high camping fees. Those fees have been reduced this year.
