The Summer Camp Music Festival, which takes place at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL from May 22nd to 24th, has announced that it plans to go full speed ahead despite current fears regarding COVID-19. Check out their press release below: 

A statement from the directors of Summer Camp Music Festival: 

“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!”

As they mention at the bottom, they are also announcing their third wave of artists slated to perform over Memorial Day weekend. You can check out the list at their Facebook page or their website.
