Kick Off Summer Festivities At Summer Camp Music Festival (5/27-5/29)


Summer is here, well almost. School is out and festival season has arrived once again. If you’re looking to start your summer off with more than 70+ live bands and music acts, then Summer Camp Music Festival is undoubtedly the festival for you. This will be the 15th year since Scamp’s inaugural year in 2001. It’s all taking place in Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL over Memorial Day weekend. Packing in one of the most diverse line-ups of the summer, Summer Camp will showcase multiple set’s of Umphrey’s Mcgee and Moe, as well as sets from Emancipator, Break Science, Lotus, and Liquid Stranger; all of which only skim the lineup’s surface. Scamp also features a banging pre-party line up, and three exclusive and very rare late night collab sets in the Red Barn. Access to the Red Barn shows are available through VIP upgrades.

Summer Camp has more than just music to offer. The multifaceted arts festival features the Soulshine Live Art Gallery, which showcases amazing artists from around the country who will create masterpieces during the best musical performances of the summer. Additionally, there will be morning meditation, yoga, and even a garden tour to embark on before all the music is underway. They also offer a variety of workshops to participate in, learn, and get involved in.
