The lineup for August’s Summer Set Camping and Music Festival only seems to be getting weirder/better. Organizers announced their “second phase” lineup this morning with the eclectic mix of names that has come to be expected from the third annual dance/hip-hop/jam-rock camp-out, returning Aug. 15-17 to Somerset Amphitheater in Somerset, Wis.

They added a big-name EDM producer, Kaskade, alongside regional jam-band favorite Umphrey’s McGee, both from Chicago. Umphrey's went over well as one of the inaugural headliners at Summer Set. Also new to the 2014 mix is the quirky and seedy rapper who made headlines (no pun intended) at the Triple Rock last year, Danny Brown, and New York’s co-ed indie-rock duo Cults.

Here’s the full list of the new names:

Kaskade / Umphrey's McGee / Flux Pavilion / Aer / The Chainsmokers / Cults / Danny Brown | Myon & Shane 54 / Twin Shadow / Break Science / Caked Up / Exmag / The Floozies / Isaiah Rashad / Luminox / Manic Focus / Moon Boots / Passafire / Sound Remedy / Treasure Fingers / Twiddle

These are in addition to the previously announced first-phase acts such as Bassnectar, Wu-Tang Clan, Chromeo, Big Gigantic and Chance the Rapper. Tickets are already on sale via the Summer Set site starting at $99 for a three-day general admission pass.
