715 Spring St, Somerset, WI, US
Bio: The Somerset Amphitheater has been a favorite Midwest music venue since the late 80′s. Located on the Apple River and a 30 minute drive from the Twin Cities, for years it has served as a summer hub for music, camping and tubing for those from Minnesota, Wisconsin and beyond. The list of concerts and festivals held at Somerset Amphitheater (formerly Floatrite Amphitheatre) is endless – from all the Hard Rock shows in the 90′s and 00′s to the Country, Blues, Folk/Bluegrass, and Classic Rock shows that date back twenty years. Over the summer of 2010, the Amphitheater was purchased by a group from the Twin Cities. The new group has no affiliation with Country Splash, so while the Country show has been cancelled, there are other shows in the works. Please continue to visit the website to see show announcements for the Summer.
