Summer Camp Music Festival Drops HUGE First Round Artist Announcement for 2022
Summer Camp Music Festival 2022 First Round Artist Announcement
Summer Camp Music Festival will take place over Memorial Day Weekend in 2022 at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL
Whoa. There have been some BIG summer festival announcements of late, but Summer Camp might take the cake. Hell, it might just be the whole damn cake.
Hosted by moe. and Umphrey’s McGee, Summer Camp Music Festival normally has a nice blend of all the genres we love – jam, bluegrass, funk, electronic, and rock – representing some of the best around.
This year they’ve outdone themselves.
The big-name on the list is Smashing Pumpkins. That’s right. Those Smashing Pumpkins!
The legendary Little Feat are also at the top of the lineup, and from there it just goes on!
We would go out of our way for any festival that merely had Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, The Infamous Stringdusters, Leftover Salmon, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Motet, but those names barely scratch the surface of Summer Camp 2022.
Also appearing at Summer Camp will be NGHTMRE, Liquid Stranger, Big Wild, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Whethan, The Allman Betts Band, Cory Wong, Moon Taxi, OPIUO, Kasbo, Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass ft. The Hillbenders.
And that’s STILL not it!
See the announcement poster below and the official press release following.
See you there!
