The anticipation has been building, and we're finally thrilled to announce the second round of artists to the Summer Camp Music Festival lineup! Returning to its longstanding home at Three Sister's Park in Chillicothe, IL, the Memorial Day Weekend (May 23-25) institution has added a ton of electronic artists to its already star-studded lineup.
Wolfgang Gartner, Gramatik, FIGURE, ︻ ƱZ ︻, Mimosa, KOAN Sound, Break Science, Cosby Sweater, and Cherub have joined EOTO, Lotus, Beats Antique, Future Rock, Bro Safari, and The Floozies on the Scamp '14 bill.
The festival has traditionally been a haven for jam bands, which is well-represented by Umphrey's, Trey, and moe., but the roster has shifted to the dance music side of the spectrum quite heavily in the last year, and the presence of Bassnectar at the top of the heap is a sure sign the festival values the influx of EDM fans. The annual Memorial Day event doesn't have to compete with EDC Chicago this year, only Movement Electronic Festival in Detroit, MI that same weekend, which caters to a much different electronic music fan.
