The rumor that deadmau5 will be playing at the Summer Set Music and Camping Festival has begun. When asked if he really would be playing in "bumblefuck", deadmau5 simply replied, "it beats EDC". While it's hardly confirmation, it does make sense.
For those of you who don't know, Summer Set is an electronic camping festival in Somerset, WI. I used to live near there and I can tell you that this is in fact a very small place. Not exactly what I'd call "bumblefuck", but still.
Having said that, Summer Set has had its fair share of big artists in their three years (like Kaskade, Zeds Dead, Passion Pit and a lot more you know very well) so this wouldn't be totally out of the ordinary. The festival is also on the Apple Valley River which is notorious for lazy water tube trips.
Also, we already know deadmau5 will be at Veld in Toronto a couple weeks before Summer Set. And Toronto is not very far from good ol' Wisco. As far as we know this is the first rumor of any artist on the lineup.
You might be surprised that he's playing here after 30 seconds of the below video, but keep watching and you'll see why this place is actually pretty amazing. And why Deadmau5 says it "beats EDC".
