Summer Camp’s Sizzlin’ Second Phase Lineup Announcement
Summer Camp Music Festival has gained recognition as the Midwest’s largest Memorial Day weekend celebration. The annual music festival builds off the foundation of three days of both moe. and Umphrey’s McGee. Both of these long-standing veterans in the jam band scene draw loyal fans to Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL for a weekend jam-packed with amazing performances of sight and sound.
This week Summer Camp stunned eager SCampers with an intriguingly diverse second phase lineup announcement. Two superstar headliners, Mudcrutch and Big Grizmatik, took fans by surprise with rare live performances to look forward to. Mudcrutch, Tom Petty’s pre-Heartbreakers band which includes Mike Campbell, Tom Leadon, Randall Marsh, and Benmont Tench, have not performed since 2008. Big Grizmatik’s sole performance was at Electric Forest in 2013, but the reunion of Big Gigantic, GRiZ, and Gramatik has been on the minds of millions of fans since their debut.
Along with the release of two headliners were numerous acts that span across the spectrum of music genres. The Roots, a hip-hop/neo soul band from Philadelphia, plus Canadian dubstep producer and DJ, Excision, and Ani DiFranco, the multi-talented American folk artist with over 20 years of experience, show just a glimpse as to the vast variety of styles for every SCamper.
Other lineup additions include: Cherub, George Clinton & P-Funk, Lil Dicky, Louis the Child, Lotus, Sam Feldt, Slow Magic, SNBRN, Exmag, The Main Squeeze, The Motet, Michal Menert & The Pretty Fantastics and many more! This extensive list is only building upon a killer initial lineup announcement which revealed STS9, Thievery Corporation, Emancipator, EOTO, Everyone Orchestra, Greensky Bluegrass, NGHTMRE, Savoy, Keller Williams, Snails, Yonder Mountain String Band among many others.
You are guaranteed to witness one-of-a-kind performances at Summer Camp Music Festival this year.
