While camping is a part of many major music festivals, including Coachella, Bonnaroo and Sasquatch, Summer Set goes the distance and actually includes camping in the fest’s name, calling itself the Summer Set Music & Camping Festival. And while we’re sure the camping is an integral element, the event probably isn’t a celebration of camping, with attendees showing off their REI gear and tent-building techniques. Or, maybe it is. Who knows?

What we are sure of is that Summer Set’s bigger draw is the music. Among the headliners this year are Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, Deadmau5 and The Weeknd. The fest sticks with dance acts and hip-hop heavyweights, mixing Carnage, ODESZA and Zeds Dead with artists like Action Bronson, G-Eazy and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Bridging the gap between the two arenas will be Purity Ring, Thievery Corporation and BadBadNotGood with Ghostface Killah.
