October 18th, 19th & 20th, 2019

Hosted by the Way Down Wanderers!

Dear Festival Goer,


2018 was a wild ride for Way Down Wanderers. We toured all over the place, got a new Manager and a new Booking Agent and we recorded a new album and shot a music video. One of our favorite memories of the year was the Wander Down Music Festival! While year two was visited by cold, rainy weather, somehow the intimate scenarios created by moving into the dining hall really had an amazing impact on the vibe. We were glad to see that our ‘Plan B’ was just as much fun as Plan A! The bands were outstanding, but it was the character and resilience of our amazing patrons that brought that vibe to bear.


We have a new location for 2019 and we believe you will find that it is perfectly suited to our needs and desires. It’s a smaller, more centralized camp, with a vast and beautiful campus surrounding it, right on the banks of Little Grassy Lake in the Shawnee National Forest of Southern, IL. There is a wide variety of housing options from tent camping all the way up to hotel rooms, all within a few hundred yards of the main stage. The facilities are clean and well-maintained by a full-time, year-round staff. Please visit the website for Touch of Nature for photos and info:

Wander Down 2019 will be a bigger and more star-studded event, with some exciting new activities and workshops. Of course our first priority is to facilitate a warm, family-friendly, old-time camp-style environment with live music both on the stage and around the campfire.  People of all ages and ability levels and folks who have no interest in playing at all will enjoy listening to music both on and off the stage in a fun, entertaining and supportive environment.
