On Saturday June 24th at 11 a.m., emily the band will be performing a free concert at the village park gazebo as part of the Bishop Hill Midsommar Music Festival. emily the band is a three-piece group based in Peoria, Illinois. Emily Antonacci, Camryn Proctor, and Abbey Haste began to share their indie alt-pop anthems with audiences in the Peoria area in April 2021. Since then, they have expanded their reach to Champaign-Urbana, Bloomington-Normal, Iowa City, and Nashville. Their highly-anticipated, independently-produced debut album, the heartbreak album (2022), has been described as a “hooky pop-gem” (Jon Norton, WGLT).
