Still don’t have anything to do next weekend for Memorial Day? Consider Summer Camp, a 3 day long music festival at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Il. Summer Camp features over 60 bands on 5 stages and offers a wide variety of music genres so anyone can enjoy. Bands from Moe., Willie Nelson, and Umphrey’s McGee to Method Man and Redman will all be playing at the festival.
The festival also features many less well known and local bands. I’m looking forward to Daphne Willis & Co, a band that I have heard many times at bars in Chicago. I am glad to see this band play at such a big event.
Also at this years festival is the 2009 MLB road show and hot air balloon rides. The road show includes an MLB authentic collection merchandise room, a gaming lounge featuring MLB titles on XBox 360 and Playstation3 on plasma screen TVs, live broadcast of MLB games, batting cage, and a speed pitch cage.
Tickets are on sale now for $155. However, this does not include late night shows (of course they make you pay for the good shows). Late night shows are an extra $15 each.
