Can you believe the year (and the decade) is almost over?! It’s an exciting time as we gear up for the 20th anniversary of Summer Camp Music Festival in 2020. While we’re still waiting to see what amazing lineup the festival has in store for this momentous occasion, we’ve all got the chance to ring in the New Year with our favorite SCamp artists.
Whether you live on the West Coast, down south, in the Midwest, in heady Colorado, or over on the East Coast, chances are there’s a SCamp NYE show for you! In this post I’ll run down the list of Summer Camp artists and their New Year’s shows, so put on your silly hat and get ready to pop bottles!
Perennial SCamp headliners moe. will ring in 2020 in their home state of New York. The iconic jamband has a 2-night run scheduled at the Stanley Theater in Utica. This is sure to be a NYE throe.down you won’t want to miss!
These shows are just about sold out, so hustle and grab your tickets now so you’re not stuck at home watching the ball drop.
The Umph boys always bring their A-game for NYE and 2019 will be no different. This year they’re heading back to Denver for a 4-night run at the Fillmore. The sextet will be playing on the 27th and 28th, taking a night off (because they’re all old like Joel now), and then coming back for two more nights.

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
This is where we’ll be ringing in 2020! PPPP are playing their first ever arena show to close out what’s been a huge year for the band. Taking place in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina, the band has chosen an interesting theme for their NYE show. It’s called “Can You Pass the Asheville Test?” and I’m thinking we’re going to get a heavy dose (pun intended) of 60s psychedelia.
The show on the 30th is at the much smaller Orange Peel and is already sold out, but you can still grab a ticket for the big show here. Oh yeah, and TAUK will be opening, so you get two SCamp bands in one show!
