Summer Camp 2021 Tales From the Middle West // August 19, 2021 // Three Sisters Park, Chillitothe, Illinois
As Umphrey’s McGee awaits our return to Summer Camp Music Festival in August, we wanted to keep everyone in the loop regarding some changes to our umVIP Thursday pre-party. Initially planned as a “Booze N’ Schmooze” with Team UM, we are making a pivot to a Storytellers-style private show, “Tales From the Middle West,” in the vein of our recent performance at Levon Helm Studios.
This hour-long performance will take place in the Red Barn, will be interspersed with band-told stories of Summer Camps of yore, prompted by questions that attendees will have an opportunity to submit in advance. Curious about the band’s favorite sit-in to date? Will Godboner ever reemerge? Who’s the real sunrise kickball champion? Get your tickets now and stay tuned for the question submission form which will be sent out to attendees closer to the event.
All umVIPs will also receive a custom 24-ounce Yeti Rambler Tumbler upon entrance to the Barn, which can be used for complimentary beer during the special set, plus an additional hour afterward (until the start of the UM Late Night Show). And of course, umVIPs get guaranteed tickets to attend the UM show in the Barn that night to kick Summer Camp off right. The umVIP experience includes mp3 downloads of all four Umphrey’s McGee shows and a commemorative laminate. Finally, umVIPs will also receive priority access to the E-Golden Ticket event, taking place in the UM online store the weekend before Summer Camp.
