Although the in-person 2020 shindig was unable to take place, the May 22-24 “Virtual Festival: A 20 Year Retrospective” took place via Live X Live, hosted by Andy Frasco and Jonathan Schwartz, featuring featuring a mix of live and pre-recorded performances, workshops, panel discussions, live Q&A’s and interviews along with throwback sets from the past. 
“What I think really shines through about Summer Camp is really that family spirit that we’ve had since year one,” festival producer Ian Goldberg told Pollstar ahead of last year’s virtual event. “Once you’re in, you feel like you’re at home for the weekend. It really is a callback to the old-style festival, the European camping style or even Woodstock and things like that. We’re able to re-create that vibe, and luckily people still connect with it.”
