Summer Camp held a number of unanswered questions as we traveled our way through the cornfields of Central Illinois towards our home for the next 4 days, Chillicothe, Illinois. Having virtually traded in my piles of Phish, Moe., and Umphrey’s albums and compilations after years of high school and college jam sessions for a more electronic-based library a few years ago, I knew Summer Camp would be a trip down memory lane, and hopefully one that I would still enjoy. What I found at Summer Camp were the people, sounds, and adventures that made me fall for music and especially music festivals in the first place. While I still spent a majority of my time hunting down my bass music fix, the jam-based festival as a whole was an excellent one that combined about as many elements of the fantastic culture as it could. Here were just some of the highlights.
Our coverage of the 11th annual Summer Camp Music Festival begins this Friday at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe Illinois. We’ll be heading down alongside a few friends in a packed RV complete with cameras and all that other goodness so those of you who can’t make it will be able to see what you missed. For those of you still interested in coming, the festival features over 50 bands on 6 stages over the course of 3 days. A few noteworthy bands include Wiz Khalifa, De La Soul, Keys N Krates, Girl Talk, EOTO and many more. Grab your tickets if you haven’t already and we’ll see you at the end of this week!
