Today, the beautiful festival announced their killer 2013 lineup led by headliners Passion Pit, Girl Talk, STS9, and Summer Set veterans Big Gigantic. If the prime landscape, three days of camping and music, and partying with 44,999 fellow ragers wasn’t enough, this stacked & diverse lineup is sure to get you clicking the ticket links. So go ahead, read through the lineup, and grab your tickets for Summer Set Music & Camping Festival 2013! We hope to see you there!

These guys cannot stop impressing us and we are sure you feel the same. Keys N Krates have been putting out some hot tunes recently with the drop of theirLucid Dreams EP just last week.
