Chilling On The Illinois Fest coming to Cave Junction, Oregon

Chilling On The Illinois Fest coming to Cave Junction, Oregon

The essence of summertime is encapsulated in various ways. Family barbecues. Beach excursions. Exploring the great outdoors. What would the season be without bringing people together, out of their previously hibernated states into the world around them? Leave your gadgets at home; it’s summertime and the livin’s easy. Two archetypes of summertime combine into one scintillating adventure upcoming in Oregon: camping out and festival fun.

Oregon is known for its greenery and early August is the ultimate time to have fun in the sun along the riverfront property of Earth People’s Park in Cave Junction. With the recent cancellations of annual reggae northwest festivals, such as Sierra Nevada among others, Earth People’s Park founder and self-proclaimed “Neo-Hippie” Morning Spring Rain (born Steven Shirley) felt that fans shouldn’t suffer the lack of summer festivities. Opening up the park to two days of unity, music and more on August 2nd and 3rd, Earth People’s Park is about to transform into the first annual Chilling On The Illinois Fest, with a kickoff party featuring Steel Pulse this Sunday, July 26th.

Earth People’s Park is about to transform into the first annual Chilling On The Illinois Fest, with a kickoff party featuring Steel Pulse…

For those wanting to join the party, the Steel Pulse pre-show includes discounted passes for the weekend after. Tickets for the actual festival days are as low as $95 right now, with camping included! And, the fun doesn’t end with the festival. Following August 3rd, Chilling On The Illinois will welcome GRAMMY-winner Stephen Marley to the park on August 31st, as well as Bermuda man Collie Buddz much later on October 26th. All tickets are now on sale, with camping only $20 extra if you spring for concert tickets over a weekend pass. And, what a weekend of music Chilling On The Illinois is going to be! Headlining the show will be Jamaican legends Toots and the Maytals alongside Sizzla, with support from Spragga Benz, Kabaka Pyramid, Alcyon Massive, Indubious, Jah Sun & The Rising Tide, Dubtonic Kru, Winstrong and Rocker T (with The Fyah Squad Band), The Lambsbread, Mista Chief & Rising Buffalo Tribe, Black-Am-I, Sister-I-Live, MC Romulus, Boom Roots Collective, One Wise Sound and DJ Green B spinning in between. Might as well RSVP for the whole weekend, if that’s the case…

Speaking of camping, the festival encourages attendees to bring tents, blankets, gear and anything else you may need to get comfortable during the show. Kids under 12 get in free and don’t worry about activities for the whole family. On top of music, festival-goers can enjoy meditative, artist and music workshops amongst healing ceremonies and craft vendors. Of course, being on the river, all are allowed to jump in the water for a dip. Organic food offerings will be onsite, as well as adult beverages for those over 21.
