Moe. and Umphrey’s McGee return to Three Sisters Park off the banks of Goose Lake in connection with the Illinois River in Chillicothe, Illinois for the 16th Annual Summer Camp Music Festival.


The first wave of artists showcases familiar faces, as well as new talent. Moe. and Umphrey’s McGee are two staples that the festival is based around. The two bands perform multiple days, and usually guest spot musicians performing at Summer Camp during their live sets.

The music festival scene recently took a hit when Wakarusa announced that they will not be having their annual event in early June. With Summer Camp taking place in the Midwest during late May, guests will be looking for other events to partake in this year.

Summer Camp Music Festival is set to have over 100 acts on 8 stages over May 27-29.
