Good music, old and new friends, and unique festival grounds – this is the adult summer camp for you.
The 16th annual Summer Camp Music Festival will return to Chillicothe, IL in 2016 for another Memorial Day Weekend at Three Sisters Park with one of their best lineups yet! This jam-based festival has huge headliners including, three days of both moe. and Umphrey’s McGee, along with STS9, Lotus, TAUK and Mudcrutch featuring Tom Petty. Not to mention the massive electronic acts they brought in this year such as, Big GRiZmatik (Big Gigantic + GRiZ + Gramatik), Excision, and Snails. Other notable artists you’re not going to want to miss include, Cherub, Emancipator, EOTO, Greensky Bluegrass, Lettuce, EXMAG, MIJA, and Boulder’s own SunSquabi.
In addition to the diverse lineup full of massive names, scamp offers a unique camping and intimate festival experience unlike anywhere else. There will be seven stages and camping in the forest; Scamp will also provide several fields where campers can leave their vehicles behind and carry their gear into the festival grounds to wherever they feel is right for them. Alternatively, RV only, VIP, and family friendly, substance-free camping are available too.
If the lineup and camping hasn’t sold you on this festival yet, the atmosphere will! Summer Camp can provide a unique experience to each individual while bringing everyone together. With activities from yoga and live painting demonstrations, to relay races and treasure hunts, scamp offers fun for all ages. Not only does scamp focus on entertainment, but it also has projects to inspire you to make a difference in your own communities back home. The Soul Shine tent, which you will find on the grounds, is the headquarters for the Make a Difference project and will be spreading positive vibes and useful knowledge all weekend to promote a more sustainable world.
All things considered, whether you’re a die-hard Umphfreak or just trying to get funky in the forest, Summer Camp is the fest for you.
