With nearly every festival set for spring and summer postponing or canceling, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is still worsening. Summer Camp Music Festival, which was originally scheduled for May 22-24, will now be taking place at the end of the summer on August 21-14. Although the future of festival season seems bleak, it’s much more likely that these events will be able to take place at the later dates.
Summer Camp organizers have released an official statement letting attendees know that the only plausible option to be able to pull off the event would be to push it back a few months.
“We very much look forward to the day when these tough, but necessary restrictions on our lives are lifted and we are once again home celebrating 20 years of Peace, Love and music with all of you amazing people,” reads the public statement from Summer Camp organizers.
All of the event’s top tier headliners have agreed to perform the new August dates, including moe., Umphrey’s McGee, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. Thankfully, fans will also get to enjoy sets from GRiZ, Rezz, STS9, Tipper, and many other talented musicians at the Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Illinois. Due to some unavoidable schedule conflicts, however, a small number of artists on the 2020 lineup poster may change.
All tickets will be transferred over to the new date and there will be an additional announcement in the coming weeks on how to get a refund if unable to attend in August. The full statement can be found below.
