With Summer Camp right around the corner, many of us are likely experiencing lots of pre-festival excitement…and hoping we don’t forget anything. So much anticipation may make it difficult to take a few deep breaths and relax, but I’m soothing myself with the idea that the time has finally come to return back home to Summer Camp with the rest of my festival family.
Scamp opens its gates tomorrow for pre-party pass holders, and Friday for general admission. It’s hard to believe that in just a matter of days we’ll have the opportunity to see Turbo Suit and guitarist Ryan Stasik of Umphrey McGee playing together at one of Saturday’s late night sets, re-performing Nirvana’s Nevermind. Yes, you read that right. Nevermind put Nirvana on the map, bringing alternative rock and grunge to mainstream ears in the 90s, and I for one cannot wait to experience this historic revival.
If you’re like me, the anticipation of experiencing such an amazing line up, venue, and vibes can cause some loss of sleep. I highly suggest downloading the festival’s free app—complete with the lineup and set times, a map, list of activities, and many more features—to help you feel as prepared as possible. I channeled my excitement in to the playlist below; take a listen and let us know who you’re most looking forward to seeing.
