In just a few days, festival goers will storm the gates of Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, IL to set up camp for a weekend of amazing music and fun. Each year, the festival has seen growth in numbers of attendees as well as musical acts.
One of the many things to love about Scamp is the diversity in music throughout the festival. On one stage, you can find electronic music while on another, you\’ll find bluegrass. There are jam bands, funk, reggae and the list goes on. Through the different music, attendees unite and it makes for a really awesome weekend.
