We’ve got some early news coming in about the Summer Camp 2006 Music Festival that will be held over Memorial Day Weekend in Chillicothe, IL–the same three artists that have been there since the beginning will be welcomed back yet again! Maybe this is predictable or a play on the blatant nostalgia that us jamband fans tend to fall back on, but I (for one) am looking forward to another great year at another small, local music festival that tends to do everything right…

Summer Camp 2006 Music Festival


  • moe. (3 nights)
  • Umphrey’s McGee (2 nights)
  • Keller Williams

I’ll update the full lineup once it becomes available…

Additional Info:

  • Tickets: Go on sale Jan. 7 (early-bird tickets of $85 until supplies last or until March)
  • 3 Stages (plus the Barn for Late-Night I’d guess…)
  • 40 Bands Total (with some Late-Nights)

If you like moe. and you’d like to attend a music festival in the heart of Illinois about 1/10th the size of Bonnaroo, you should definitely attend Summer Camp. You won’t be mistaken, unless of course tornados rip through the festival and send the campgrounds into full panic. Naw, that won’t happen this year…
