What is Summer Camp All About?

Two things you need to know about Summer Camp. It goes down every Memorial Day weekend and moe. always headlines.  Since ’01, this jam fest has been a chill alternative to some of the larger festivals around Chicago . Last year, crowds were estimated around 10,000.

Coco spent three days at Summer Camp last year and told us that she “had a blast.” Her big tip: Arrive early as you can pitch your tent anywhere you want. No assigned spots.

Her other big tip: Invest in a camp toilet.

Here’s a few photos from her adventure. To see the lineup and get ticket info check out the MFW Summer Camp Festival Guide. Have fun!
