Summer Camp to Return to Chillicothe

While this is somewhat old news, the folks at JayTV and Three Sisters Park have confirmed that the Summer Camp Music Festival will be returning to the same location in Chilicothe for the next five years.

After an enormous show of support from the City of Chillicothe and the surrounding area, Three Sisters Park reversed course and has invited the Summer Camp Music Festival back for 2007. And now Jay Goldberg Events & Entertainment is pleased to announce that the Summer Camp Music Festival will be back in Chillicothe, Illinois for, at least, the next five years!

I’m psyched to hear that it’s staying put; I enjoy attending this festival (I went in 2005 and 2006) and look to attend for many years to come…

  1. it doesn’t bring money to my town, other than a slight increase in city sales tax revenue. all you trustafarians spend money at here is on the grounds and at corporate-owned gas stations and corporate-owned grocery stores. way to go hippies, line the pockets of those shareholders!

    and you’re right there are already plenty of drugs here. unlike other Chillicotheans i’m really not concerned about that, other than of course the fact that i personally know good-natured high-school age emo-hardcore kids who out of the kindness of their hearts _volunteer_ to help clean the grounds after G-Berg & Co go over it with their extra-wide-tooth comb. this act of eco-conscious behaviour wouldn’t normally disturb me but are picking up more needles every year. that’s just wrong. needle-drugs have NO place in jam band culture.

    the sound, lighting, and backline company which is engaged by the G-Berg is not local, they are from Champaign. they are also notoriously cheap in the live sound business and as such the fact that they fly _anything_ is disturbing. if anyone ever gets killed at this festival it’s not going to be from a drug overdose (unless heroin use continues to increase) it’s going to be because something heavy will fall on someone from 30 ft up.
