Camp Bisco Announces Lineup and More
Camp Bisco has finally announced its 2015 lineup. After weeks of speculation as to weather the festival itself would even happen, after it was beset by problems getting approval to return to its traditional home ILCC in upstate New York; yesterday the festival announced for it’s 13th year it would return to Pennsylvania to the Montage Mountain waterpark in Scranton, PA.
The Disco Biscuits announced today the return of Camp Bisco this summer, and for the first time since 2002, it will be hosted in their home state of Pennsylvania. The 3-day music and arts festival will take place July 16-18 in Scranton, PA at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain & Montage Mountain Waterpark. The festival now boasts an atmosphere that features an outdoor water park beautifully situated alongside the serene mountains of Northeast PA – approximately 2 hours from Philadelphia and New York City.
Camp Bisco will feature headlining performances by The Disco Biscuits, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, STS9, Big Gigantic, Atmosphere, Tipper & many more!
“We landed on Montage Mountain for Camp Bisco, and feel fortunate and blessed to have found such a perfect venue for our festival,” said The Disco Biscuits. “We personally helped curate the lineup for the 13th installment of our flagship event, which is as deep as ever and promises to be the best Camp Bisco yet.”
Early-bird tickets are only $135 (+fees) and go on sale this Friday, May 1 at Noon ET. Three-day GA tickets, Camping, VIP and Super VIP passes are also available. For tickets and other festival details, go to CampBisco.com.

Road to Camp Bisco
As many of you know we have in the past partnered with the festival and produced our “Road to Camp Bisco” series. At the bottom of this post are links to some of our more memorable Road to Camp Bisco posts from superfans, members of Orchard Lounge, Dopapod, The Indobox, SOLARiS and the founder of LostinSound.
In 2013 when the festival told fans that it would be taking a year off we were of course sad. But now we are looking forward to the festival coming back bigger and badder then ever.
[box]Camp and we look forward to doubling down on that after this year off. We are so thankful for all your rabid support, so please stay tuned, there will be some amazing announcements right around the corner.[/box]
We cant wait to see what Camp Bisco has in store for 2015.
