The 2021 Summer Camp Music Festival has been postponed to the fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Summer Camp will now be held August 20 – 22 at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Illinois with a official pre-party kickoff scheduled for Thursday, August 19.

Organizers shared a note confirming “the vast majority of our lineup” will remain intact. Summer Camp 2021 comes in the celebration of the event’s 20th anniversary. Additional artists and activities will be announced “in the coming weeks.” While all tickets will automatically rollover to the August dates, information on refunds for those who cannot attend is forthcoming.


Check out the full statement from Summer Camp management:

“Summer Camp Family,

We miss you all. We haven’t been away from you and Three Sisters Park for this long since Summer Camp Music Festival began in 2000. One thing is certain, our 20th Anniversary is going to be the best celebration we could dream of after all this time apart… It’s going to be truly special.

At this time, due to the ongoing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to reschedule Summer Camp Music Festival 2021 to take place over the weekend of August 20-22, 2021, with the pre-party taking place Thursday, August 19th. We realize that Memorial Day Weekend isn’t going to be feasible, but we’re excited to look towards the future and gather once again in late August to celebrate life, love, and music. We are again happy to say that the vast majority of our lineup is able to join us in August for our 20th anniversary celebration. We will be releasing an updated lineup soon so stay tuned for more information on that, as well as details on refunds for any current ticket holders who will not be able to celebrate with us in August.

For all you SCampers who are holding tickets, we sincerely thank you. Your support means the world to us as we navigate these difficult times. All current tickets will be honored for the new dates, therefore you need do nothing to change your tickets. And again, once we are able to finalize all details, we will announce all artists making the move with us and will provide information on refunds for those patrons who are not able to make the new dates.

Keep your Summer Camp spirit alive, we’ll see you again…”

moe. and Umphrey’s McGee are the traditional Summer Camp headliners. The event usually takes place over Memorial Day Weekend. Last year’s festival was initially postponed and then canceled in the wake of the pandemic. Organizers announced the original 2021 dates and lineup back in July. Ween, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Billy Strings, Three Six Mafia, Rezz, STS9 and Tipper were among those joining moe. and UM on the bill for Summer Camp 2021 when it was slated to be held May 28 – 30.
