Summer Set Festival 2012 lineup
The 2012 Summer Set Music and Camping Festival arrives in late August, and the lineup is a doozy. Combining the powers of jam bands, electronic music, hip-hop, reggae, and all of the confluences that exist between these many worlds, this year's edition should be a shock to the system. To say nothing of the camping benefits!
Although the names Pretty Lights, Umphrey's McGee, and Big Gigantic appear larger on the poster, let's just say that three living legends of rap will be tenting it up for the weekend too. Nas, who needs little introduction and zero hype men, is one of them. The mercurial duo of Mos Def and Talib Kweli as Black Star will also highlight the lyrically powerful portion of the weekend, taking place August 24-26 in Somerset, Wisconsin at the Somerset Amphitheater. The massive lineup is below.
