08.08.14 / Top 10 Things You Need To Know for SSMF

1. PLEASE ARRIVE WITH YOUR ENTIRE CAMPING CREW In an effort to get all of our Summer Set patrons through the tolls and into their campsites as quickly and safely as possible. Please make every possible effort to arrive with your entire camping party. Campers arriving separately will have to make arrangements with the rest of their party to receive their camping credentials. No one will be admitted into the Summer Set campgrounds without a camping wristband. Summer Set Festival is getting more crowded each year, and we’re ecstatic that more people are joining the movement. With that said, with large crowds can come long lines and short tempers. Make sure you arrive early to give yourself the best chance of a seamless check-in.

We’re turning up the game this year with two MASSIVE after-parties!  Friday Night will wrap up in the perfect way with the rising multi-genre rockstar GRAMATIK, plus the world premiere of MANIC SCIENCE, a collab between BREAK SCIENCE and MANIC FOCUS.  This first night is definitely going to be filled with plenty of bass and funk Saturday Night features a co-headliner bill, featuring the laser-bombarding SAVOY and the incredible live performance of EMANCIPATOR ENSEMBLE!  Putting this two acts together for one after-party is about as good as it gets to wrap up the Saturday of Summer Set! Both afterparties are ON SALE NOW with 2 night early bird packages available for a VERY limited time only! Capacity for the afterparties is also limited so snag your tickets on the quick.  Remember:  Buy advance, guaranteed to dance!

04.23.14 / Explore SSMF Camping Options :)

The only way to truly experience Summer Set is to camp with us!  We’ve expanded our camping options this year, and we wanted to take a second to tell you all about your options and per person pricing. If you plan to camp with us, someone in your party will need to purchase a campsite in one of our 4 unique campgrounds.  While we would of course prefer to offer the option of combining your 3-day pass with your campsite, our camping space is limited at Summer Set making this model unfeasible.  Selling camping by the site allows us to more accurately monitor the number of individuals residing in each campground and comply with Wisconsin rules and regulations.  And we want to make sure we can accommodate all of you wonderful party people!
