From July 12th to 14th, the 15th annual Camp Euforia will take over Jerry’s Farm in Lone Tree, Iowa. Hosted by the energetic funk and Afro-Carribean fusion group, Eufórquestra, the Colorado-based host band will perform two headlining sets. Camp Euforia has also tapped Turkuaz, Fruition, and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band to round out the festival’s headliners. Camp Euforia will also host sets from Middle Western, Miles Nielsen & The Rusted Hearts, Chicago Afrobeat Project, The Diplomats of Solid Sound, The Candymakers, The Maytags, Kind Country, Dead Larry, and more.
The festival, which was started in 2004 as Eufórquestra’s “Fan Appreciation Party” but has grown into a full-blown music festival with multiple stages and dozens of artists, will celebrate its 15th anniversary in 2018. Given this landmark year, the festival will host a special “Camp Eurforia All-Star Jam” on Thursday night, which is available exclusively to three-day ticket holders. With a long-running focus on highlighting eastern Iowa’s music scene, the festival also has plans to announce additional local acts following a Battle of the Bands competitions on May 12th at Iowa City Yacht Club and June 2nd at Gas Lamp in Des Moines.
Advanced tickets for Camp Euforia are on sale now, including a special $90 early-bird two-day festival pass, with the option to upgrade to a $110 ticket, which includes Thursday night pre-party camping. For more information about the festival and its lineup, head over to Camp Euforia’s website here.
