Summer Camp Festival Adds Jane's Addiction

Today, the Summer Camp Music Festival added Jane’s Addiction, the latest artist to augment its already robust music plan. The influential festival also released news today about its upgraded VIP experience and announced three intimate, indoor late-night sets for the 12th annual event happening May 25 -27 at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Illinois.

Well after midnight, activities move inside to Red Barn with Primus’ bassist Les Claypool and the Dead Kenny G’s performing Friday, while new electro collective Gigantic Underground Conspiracy - featuring members of Big Gigantic and Disco Biscuits offshoot Conspirator – melt faces in the barn on Saturday night. Pretty Lights will close out Summer Camp’s most intimate festivities with a performance on Sunday’s late-night stage. Tickets to the late-night shows are separate from general admission and are available at

Summer Camp’s four different levels of VIP experience each provide amenities and activities not available in the general campground. Roughing it is a lot easier at Summer Camp with air conditioned bathrooms, VIP-only showers, closer parking and camping and a slew of festival posters, shirts, as well as special access to front of stages and to VIP only private bars. Four levels range from a basic upgrade all the way up to the higher ‘VIP Rockstar’ upgrade that includes tickets to all three late-night shows and passes equivalent to an artist pass with backstage access at all stages.
