The fifth annual Summer Set Music & Camping Festival just announced its 2016 lineup, featuring headlining sets from dubstep god Skrillex, Chicago rapper (and Rock the Garden headliner — whoops!) Chance the Rapper with the Social Experiment, and tubthumping EDM maestro Bassnectar.

Experimental art-pop mastermind Grimes and trap-rap king Fetty Wap are among other big names playing supporting sets August 12-14 at the Somerset Amphitheater in Somerset, Wisconsin — about 35 miles northeast of the Twin Cities. 

Other than Bassnectar, who’s performed at the ever-growing EDM carnival three years running, the main acts this year are new to the Summer Set stage. It’ll be a rare chance to see Chance the Rapper collab live with the Social Experiment, as well as the first time any eight-time Grammy winner has appeared (Skrillex; remember, the dance music categories count).

Other '16 Summer Set notables include party-starting DJ Steve Aoki, Maryland-based rapper Logic, future-bass producer Marshmello, and the electro-instrumental rockers STS9

The fest’s press release teases that attendees might get some “special surprise collaborations” in honor of the five-year anniversary. Does that mean Chance will hop on a Grimes track? Probably not, but who knows?

Instead, maybe Fetty Wap and Skrillex will finally create the trap-dubstep fusion we’ve been waiting for since each artist graced the mainstream. Either way, Summer Set 2016 is shaping up to be the premier Midwestern festival for folks who love EDM and Molly.
