Summer Set Music & Camping Festival is gearing up for their fourth incredible year in Somerset, Wisconsin – and 2015’s rendition of the northern festival is shaping up to be bigger than ever.
Taking place from Friday, August 14 through Sunday, August 16, 2015 – Summer Set Music & Camping Festival is bringing together the best from the jam and electronic music realms to create an audio wonderland that’s sure to melt faces and bend minds.
Featuring artists like Bassnectar, Deadmau5, Big Gigantic, Zeds Dead, Lotus, ODESZA, Lettuce, Nahko & Medicine for the People, and many more – get ready to experience nothing short of transcendent musical bliss at Summer Set 2015.
While the headliners immediately stand out in spades on the Summer Set bill, the lineup runs much deeper than the top 10 acts and includes an incredible array of lesser-known artists that are guaranteed to slay their time slots at Summer Set 2015.
Here are 5 lesser known artists who you can’t miss at Summer Set Music & Camping Festival:
John McCarten AKA Manic Focus is quickly rising as an unstoppable force in the dance music community with his signature blend of warm glitched-out grooves. With a style that hits all genres ranging from electro hip-hop to glitch to future bass and everything in between, Manic Focus’ productions hit a range of emotion that few artists can.
Consistently morphing his sound to new and never-before-heard amalgamations, Manic Focus has shared the stage with a scattering of today’s top artists. Whether he’s performing as Manic Focus, Manic Science (Manic Focus x Break Science), Manic Menert (Manic Focus x Michal Menert), or anything in between – make sure you’re front and center for his set, just don’t forget your boogie shoes.
While they’re only playing the official Summer Set after party, The Floozies always deserve to be mentioned with their epic alien-level funk dance parties. Comprised of brothers Matt and Mark Hill, The Floozies’ quirky style sounds like a collaboration somewhere between the likes of James Brown, P-Funk, and spaceship full of interstellar bass messiahs. It’s funky, it’s glitchy, and it’s epic.
With a raunchy sound that constantly pushes the future funk genre to new heights, The Floozies dance-fueling performances are something that you can’t pass up – trust us.

Modern Measure is one of the growing legion of artists who are pushing the boundaries of electronic music through their incorporation of live organic instrumentation on stage and in the studio. Jamtronica, livetronica, damn good music – whatever you want to call it, that’s what they do.
Bending the traditional rules between the electronic and organic realms, in their short time together musicians Kyle Holly (live drums/music production) and Charlie Thornton (bass guitar, music production) have been making a serious mark on today’s ever-changing musical landscape.
Having shared the stage with STS9, Big Gigantic, The Disco Biscuits, Zoogma, Manic Focus, The Floozies, The New Deal, Turbo Suit, and more since their inception in 2013 – expect to see big things from Modern Measure in the near future.
The Minneapolis, Minnesota native turned Los Angeles resident Vaski is set to bring the bass fury to Wisconsin and Summer Set 2015 with his flawless bass-heavy productions. First gaining his initial break with the rise of American dubstep, Vaski has proven himself to be one of the more diverse electronic artists in the scene today.
Whether he’s creating dance floor smashing dubstep, tightly wound electro, silky future bass, or any number of a broad spectrum of styles – Vaski always guarantees to impress.
Glitch, jazz, classical, and more – each of these descriptors lends themselves to the ever-changing musical conglomeration that is Haywyre. Martin Vogt AKA Haywyre has been making some serious waves in the American EDM scene since returning to the U.S. from Austria in 2008.
After studying piano performance for 14+ years, the keyboard has quickly become Vogt’s go-to method of dance floor destruction. With fleet fingers Haywyre’s one-of-a-kind improvisational performances are a true sight to behold. If you’re looking for a musician who’s sound and style is completely unmatched, then Haywyre is the artist for you.
From the headliners like Bassnectar, Deadmau5, and Thievery Corporation to artists like GRiZ, Tycho, Boombox, and more – Summer Set is gearing up to be Wisconsin’s premier EDM event in 2015.
