Summer Camp Music Festival Adds Artists: Three 6 Mafia, Shpongle, Banyan, Hot Buttered Rum and More

, , ,


Summer Camp has added a third round of artists to its 20th Anniversary edition. The festival will take place May 22-24 in Chillicothe, Ill. Three 6 Mafia, Shpongle and Hot Buttered Rum have been added to the bill.

In addition, Banyan featuring Stephen Perkins, Willie Waldman, Jake Cinninger, and Jim Loughlin will be performing, as well as The Jauntee, Filibusta, Funk You and many more.

The announcement comes amid widespread event cancellations due to coronavirus. Considering Summer Camp’s late May start date, it is unclear whether large gatherings will be running normally at that time.

The festival addressed the timing of the announcement in a statement.

“As you may have seen yesterday, the Illinois Governor has placed a ban on all events of 1000 or more gathering until May 1st. While we are deeply saddened for the effects this is having on our society, the silver lining is that Summer Camp takes place at the very end of May,” the statement read. “As such, all of our plans for the Summer Camp Music Festival are to move forward as usual for now. We will, of course, keep you updated if anything changes or new information as it becomes available.”

Round 3 Artist Announcement

As you may have seen yesterday, the Illinois Governor has placed a ban on all events of 1000 or more gathering until May 1st. While we are deeply saddened for the effects this is having on our society, the silver lining is that Summer Camp takes place at the very end of May. As such, all of our plans for the Summer Camp Music Festival are to move forward as usual for now. We will, of course, keep you updated if anything changes or new information as it becomes available.We realize this is a difficult time for many. Our industry (as well as many others) is getting hit very hard with a loss of work and income for many musicians, venue staff, promoters and so on. Our community is widely affected, from our health and finances to our families and more and we take this very seriously. During this time, we feel that it’s more important than ever to continue to share expressions of love, help and understanding with each other. As we look ahead for a light at the end of the tunnel we want to give you something to look forward to.In an effort to shine the light and spread positivity, we are continuing to plan to celebrate our 20th Anniversary with you all in May! As such, we are pleased to present you our 3rd Artist Announcement! We are looking forward to a great celebratory weekend together, as a family, and coming out stronger on the other side!The famed hip hop group Three 6 Mafia, psychedelic visionary Shpongle (Simon Posford) (DJ Set), and a lovely selection of rising stars will be joining our celebration this Memorial Day Weekend. #SCamp20
