Festivalist '09: Summer Camp Festival

What: Summer Camp Festival 2009

When: May 22nd – 24th

Where: Three Sisters Park, Chillicothe, IL

Headliners: moe, Willie Nelson, Umphrey’s McGee, Method Man & Redman

Artist Highlights: Keller Williams, Les Claypool, Girl Talk, Gomez, Dark Star Orchestra, Los Lobos, Buckethead

Tickets: 3-Day passes are $125 (at least $50 more for Camping). VIP and Single Day passes are pretty confusing, so good luck.

My Take: Summer Camp looks….interesting.  With 5 stages, its clearly a line-up I should spend a weekend researching.  Literally, the only reason I know about it is because of obsessing over Girl Talk’s tour itinerary (apparently Girl Talk is for the kids). The only people I have heard of are listed above (there are probably 30 more on the bill I’ve no idea about).  This fest must draw some serious moe and Umphrey’s McGee fans though, because they been on the line-up almost every year since 2001.  Summer Camp does offer hot air balloon rides though!

Again, I’ve never been so anyone who has, please comment….or donate a ticket?!?
