Favorite ThisTop 10 Summer Set Music Festival Artists

Published: July 17, 2014

Summer Set Music Festival is stacked. There's no getting around it. Top to bottom, this is one of the best festivals of the year.

Throw in the fact that React Presents, SIMShows, and Majestic Madison know how to throw barn-burning parties, and you've got a recipe for a rager.

Amidst all the acts and all the stages pulling you in different directions August 15-17 in Somerset, WI, we can give you some clarity and peace of mind. Sure, there's a lot to do, and a ton of distractions. But the music comes first. It always comes first. Don't lose sight of that. Or "don't lose hearing" of that. No, that sounds stupid.

Anyway, fret not, festival goer, we're going to break down the 10 acts you absolutely cannot miss. It would be a sin, and you've been so good all year. You deserve a little guidance.

10. Bassnectar

Let's just get this out of the way. You're gonna go see Bassnectar. OK, case closed.

9. Flying Lotus


Ever listen to something and get mad because it's so good? That's pretty much the start of ever Flying Lotus DJ set. "Shit, I will never something this good." Thankfully, you get over it after the first couple of tracks. But boy does it sting, at first. Stings quite a bit.

8. Chromeo

It's time for Tha FunklordZ to rise again. Chromeo was in hibernation for a hot minute, but the release of White Women rocketed the super fresh duo back into the spotlight. Careful with your girl around these dudes. That's all we're going to say. Just be careful.
