It’s that time of year again to pack your bags and head off to Summer Camp! No, not the usual sing songs around a campfire kind; we’re talking about Summer Camp Music Festival!
On Memorial Day weekend, this annual fest will return to Chillicothe, Illinois, to celebrate 22 years of music from May 26-28. This three-day music and arts festival is right around the corner and will surely be one for the books.
With top-notch musical acts, fun daytime activities, great food, and a unique camping experience, you won’t want to miss this.
The Summer Camp team has many legendary acts headed to Three Sisters Park this year, such as Willie Nelson & Family, Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, Excision, Ganja White Night, Dirtwire, Papadosio, Lotus, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Wailers, INZO, Rusko, Manic Focus, So Tuff So Cute, Wooli, Boogie T, BUKU, And Many More. From folk and bluegrass to heavy dubstep and weird bass, Summer Camp truly has it all!
Not only is the music always top-tier, but there’s always fun to be had all around the festival grounds! Be sure to sign up and participate in the Field Day Color Wars, where contestants battle in games such as dodgeball, tug-o-war, giant twister, and more! Also, a simple stroll through the campgrounds can always send you off on a crazy adventure, so be ready to explore!
Three days not enough for you? Don’t worry! Head to the grounds a day early on Thursday, May 25, for the pre-party if you want an extra day of dancing with your friends!
Alternatively, Sunday 1-day passes are available as well if you’re only interested in attending for a single day. Secure whatever tickets float your boat here!
Summer Camp Music Festival welcomes everyone to come and participate in the beautiful experience, and we are so excited to be headed back.
We hope to see you there!
