Earlier yesterday fans of the on Facebook and started to get treated to the official lineup announcement slowly but surely leaking out over the interwebs. I was busy so didn’t really have time to digest it, but waking up this morning to the official announcement and seeing that , Umphrey’s McGee, and are all at the top of the lineup is a nice treat for any fans in Illinois that regularly make this festival. I used to attend this back in my formidable years in the Midwest and have nothing but fond memories and continued respect for the lineups that these guys have been putting together.

Along with the top-three (where’s on this announcement, by the way?), here are the rest of the artists announced for the festival. As always, it will be held over Memorial Day weekend at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL. It’s a chill spot; definitely a recommended festival if you’re not heading out West for .
