One of the greatest things of our time is the exponential growth of music festivals. A few years back I watched a documentary on Woodstock. It covered the set up, the music, the finances, and the 400,000 Woodstock attendees. I remember thinking how cool an experience like that would be. And now our generation is lucky enough to have music festivals popping up around the world, creating weekends spent united in music and love. One of these music festivals happens to be a skip and a jump from the Twin Cities set in Somerset, Wisconsin. Summer Set Music Festival was founded in 2012, thus this year being its third year running. My experience included no hiccups for all situations. I chose RV/Preferred camping which knocked down a few hours waiting in line for the security check. Once checked in, we had access to clean water, nearby medical stations, general stores, ATMs, and security close by for any emergency situations. The inside prices for food and alcohol were surprisingly not marked up at all. SSMF is also located just off the Apple River. Many attendees spent their mornings tubing down the river. It was a little too chilly for my taste, but still provided many a great way to spend their mornings before the music started. Summer Set Music Festival Facebook Page
