Rage Fest returns to southern Illinois (June 26-28)

UPDATE: Festival has moved locations due to flood waters. Will now be held at Freedom Lake in Waterloo, IL. 

Next weekend, June 26-28, some of southern Illinois' finest musicians will make their way to the shoreline of the Kaskaskia River near New Athens, Ill - about 45 minutes from St. Louis - for this year's Rage Fest Music Festival.

In addition to hosting over 20 musical acts on two stages, the fest will also feature several food, drink, and craft vendors as well as live art performances and workshops.

Tickets to the festival can be purchased through their official website. General admission tickets to the fest come with two nights of primitive camping, with wooded area camping limited. For a few extra bones, festival goers can upgrade to car camping and drive right into the festival, which for anyone who knows camping festivals, having the car their is key.

Rage Fest attendees also have the option for RV camping and can purchase a VIP upgrade. The VIP upgrade comes with a commemorative poster, VIP camping and the beer. Who doesn't like free beer? For those who don't have a VIP upgrade, there will be alcohol available to buy on site.

Gates to the festival open at noon on Friday and music starts at 2 p.m. For more information visit or their Facebook page.
