Lake. Trees. Music. Sounds like a great festival to us. The MFJ staff are campers at heart — we spent the winter living in an RV so there’s a special place in our heart for a weekend in the forest. The Tall Tree Lake Music Festival in Southern Illinois is certainly on our wish list for a fall camping trip.
Headliners for the festival include: Emmitt-Nershi Band (2 Nights), Big Gigantic, Ana Sia, Alex B., Emancipator, Eliot Lipp, and Gift of Gab from Blackalicious. Check out the full lineup here in our Tall Tree Lake festival guide.
Tickets for the September 24-25 show are $55 for a two-day pass which includes camping. Sites are located right next to your car. There’s also a Bluegrass Barn Jam on Friday with Emmitt-Nershi Band, Mountain Sprout, Deadman Flats, Whistle Pigs, and Ballhog. This show costs $10.
