There was quite the commotion around SFX’s acquisition Febraury acquisition of React Presents, the Chicago based company that’s most known for Spring Awakening Music Fest and Summer Set Music & Camping Fest. Consequently there was a good bit of curiosity going into this year’s Summer Set, to see how SFX would change (or not change) anything. The stacked lineup announcement kept away any doubts though, and the festival was set up for a great success.
This year’s Summer Set has come and gone now. Over 55,000 attendees (10,000 more than last year) congregated in the beautiful woods of Wisconsin to see over 50 artists from all over the world. The magic of Summer Set is difficult to encapsulate but the official recap video gets pretty darned close. In the mini-movie, you’ll get a first hand look at the setup that went into the stages and attractions, folks pitching their tents, gorgeous scenery and a wide variety of performers; all of this is set to a mix bag of music from Hoseshoes and Hand Grenades, The Floozies, and Bassnectar. If you went this year and wanna relive the beautiful three day fest, or if you need something to convince ya to buy tickets for next year, then check out the recap above!
