Summer Camp Music Festival at Three Sisters Park

Looks like this event has already taken place.

Summer Camp Music Festival’s first event in 2001 brought about 1,000 patrons to enjoy over 15 bands on two stages during the 2-day event at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL.

Since, Summer Camp has transformed the grounds annually, welcoming in more fans, more fun and way more music. This event is now the host of a variety of performances on multiple stages over three days (four if you make it to the Thursday Pre-Party!). Summer Camp is the biggest event in the Midwest every Memorial Day Weekend!

Despite the growth, Summer Camp remains the “home away from home” stomping grounds for dedicated SCampers, welcoming in new attendees each year to become a part of our giant, music-loving family. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first year or 21st attending the festival, you’ll enter the grounds for the time of your life and leave with a life-changing experience. As one fan put it, “Coming to Summer Camp is like coming home.”

Almost tripling the population of Chillicothe for the weekend, Summer Camp creates a city within a city, and greatly impacts the local business economy.

Artists that have performed at the Summer Camp Music Festival in past years include: moe., Umphrey’s McGee, Trey Anastasio Band, The Flaming Lips, Willie Nelson,Ween, Widespread Panic, Tom Petty’s Mudcrutch, Big Grizmatik, Les Claypool, Keller Williams, Billy Strings, Pretty Lights, Skrillex, The Roots, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Medeski Martin & Wood, and many, many more!
