Summer Camp Music Festival
I was a real nowhere lass, sitting on my nowhere ass, making all my nowhere plans for nobody. Memorial Day weekend is supposed to be spent at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL for Summer Camp Music Festival. Two years without my big blowout weekend left me a real blind bat. I had feared when they announced an August attempt, would it even happen? Would it be safe? Would it be the same? I was unperceptive to what I used to consider my thing, my scene, festivals were my jam.
Electro-jam quintet Vintage Pistol is on a quest to make up for lost time this year with a stacked touring calendar that spans far beyond the Ozark Mountains from which they proceed. As self-proclaimed highway junkies, the thunderous rock outfit thrives in the whirlwind of dusty festival grounds and questionable roadside watering holes.
Summer Camp Music Festival proudly presents the final lineup additions for their 20th Anniversary celebration next month. Get ready for a 2nd set of Billy Strings, plus Dirty Heads, Subtronics, Death Kings (Ryan Stasik, Mike Gantzer, & Mikey Carubba), Ghost-Note, Karina Rykman, KellerSquabi, lespecial, Maggie Rose, MonoNeon, Saxsquatch, & more as they join an already stacked lineup.

Dates for the Summer Camp Music Festival 20th Anniversary have been rescheduled to take place Memorial Day Weekend 2021. Organizers had remained hopeful that Illinois would enter into Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois Plan, however due to the recent spike in cases nationwide, they have determined that it is no longer safe to hold the event this year.
