Bigfoot Band Camp Music Festival

Live Music / Art / Camping

Bigfoot Band Camp is an annual 4-day/3-night music, arts and camping festival created by musicians and artists coming together to capture the true essence of what an outdoor music fest should be.

Modeled after a '70s style outdoor music fest that really takes you back to the days of good vibes and good tunes, blending the best of the past and present.

Hidden in the Illinois River Valley lies 270 acres of woods and green rolling meadows so remote, even Bigfoot himself has been spotted (relaxing)! With 5 different campgrounds to choose from, you can gaze up at the night sky from the Meadows campground and see every star in the galaxy! Or wake up to the sounds of birds chirping when you stay in the Woods campground.

Every July, over a hundred performers from all over the country unite to camp out and perform their music live and loud on multiple stages. National, regional and local musicians join together with fire and belly dancers, yoga and hoop girls, all connecting with each other and their fans through their music and art.

You get to hang out with hundreds of cool people that dig the same things you do. Drink a beer with an old friend while seeing a new band. Dance barefoot in the grass, make new friends and help others slip into the groove - you are now part of the Band Camp Community! The smell of summer is in the air! It's time load up your tent, grab your best buds and coolest duds and drive on out into the wilderness, for the greatest experience of your entire summer!
