Summer Camp Music Festival

When: May 23rd-25th

Where: Chillicothe, Illinois

Why Go: Chicago gets the headlines for Pitchfork and Lollapalooza, but those seeking a fuller festival experience – one featuring camping, RVs and the Zac Brown Band – would do well to travel southwest to Summer Camp. There, a few miles outside Peoria, groups like Umphrey's McGee and the Trey Anastasio Band will jam alongside electronic acts like Bassnectar and UZ in an event where, if all goes well, the vibes will be as good as the smell is bad.

15 Must-See Acts: Moe., Umphrey's McGee, Zac Brown Band, Trey Anastasio Band, Bassnectar, Primus, Slightly Stoopid, Girl Talk, Lettuce, UZ, Koan Sound, Blackberry Smoke, Greensky Bluegrass, Lotus, Blues Traveler
