Since festival season is almost upon us, I figured it was time to write about the one we went to last summer. My friends and I had all finally turned 21, it was nearing the end of the summer, and we wanted to keep our goal of going to a festival every year. We discovered Summerset Music Festival in Somerset, Wisconsin earlier in the year, but after finding out about a 4th of July discount pack we had no option but to book it.
This was the first time any of us had camped out for a festival, and it ended up being one of the best parts. The atmosphere is so free and easy going - we had all kinds of people coming up to our tent to hang out. Also the fact that they accidentally upgraded us to VIP was definitely a plus.
Summerset was new and different from anything we had done before, and it definitely had it’s bonuses. A smaller venue with only 3 stages means less stress in deciding who to see. Camping out is a must from here on out, and I also loved that we were so close to Apple River. If I ever come back to Summerset, I’ll have to add floating to the mix. But I’m excited to see what festival season 2014 will bring :)
