    About fucking time somebody starts using this amphitheater again. I will be there, depending on price, I haven't gone down the Apple River in ages

    Edit: 65 bucks, there

    I really hope there is another headliner coming, and more undercard. If not though, for 65 bucks this is still a pretty decent deal.

    It says 30+ and only listed 23. 65 is def a good price, especially with camping included.

    3 days of somerset should be a blast though. i still do the apple river once a year and its not what it used to be like. im sure that weekend will be in full swing.

    just fwiw, the $65 for the 2-day GA + Camping and $160 for VIP + Camping prices will go up, these are early bird prices.

    they also just put the $45 2-day GA passes + $125 2-day VIP passes for those who don't want to camp, which are also early bird prices too.

    crazy that the VIP passes include food, beer & wine

    they've yet to announce like 6-7 of the acts as well (one that will be announced next week after Soundset)

    I'm doing VIP for sure. Too cheap not to. I really wanted to get a camping spot on the river at Float-rite across the street. Always wild as fuck down there.

    Won a couple tickets the other day. Just got a camping spot at Float Rite on the river with electricity. Pumped about the Charlie Parr, Pert Near Sandstone and Okkervil River addition.

    I'm gonna camp across the street at Float Rite. Get a spot on the river with electricity. They have weekly themes down there that are pretty corny and the weekend we will be there is Christmas in July. I'll bring a bunch of dumb shit

    Hopefully, but the lineup was super generic and really not that exciting at all. Better luck to Summer Set in the Somerset Amphitheater

    Yeah we'll see. The Summer Set line-up strikes me as being kind of a hodge-podge. It looks interesting, but I can't figure out what audience they're trying to cater to.

    99 bucks for a 3 day pass sure is a steal, though.
