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 present to you the 2015 #CampBisco line-up! SHARE it with your friends and we’ll see you on July 16-18 at Montage Mountain. BISCO IS BACK! Tickets go on sale Friday at noon. More info at www.CampBisco.com

“I’ve long admired Camp Bisco largely because it’s the result of hard work and passion brought by my dear friends The Disco Biscuits,” said Jason Miller, President, Live Nation, New York.  “But what it really represents to me is this unmistakable bond between the band, their fans, and all of our friends who’ve been coming along for the ride for 13 years now. “

See you on the mountain.”

 

“This is going to be an exciting summer on the mountain, said Susan Estler, Executive Director of Lackawanna County Visitors Bureau.  With a jam-packed concert season featuring everyone from the world’s biggest country music stars to Peach Festival, and now Camp Bisco, we look forward to welcoming music fans from near and far and the positive economic impact it will have on Lackawanna County.“

 

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.
