Camp Bisco Keeps Getting Bigger With Funky Lineup Additions!
One of the hottest topics of the summer is the long awaited return of Camp Bisco. The festival which first opened its gates over a decade ago has flourished into a bonafide cult phenomenon. Spearheaded by the legendary Disco Biscuits, Camp Bisco is much more than a music festival for the loyal rabble that return year after year to soak up amazing vibes and phenomenal music that has become synonymous with the gathering. In many ways Camp Bisco is like a family reunion, a few days set aside for reuniting with the people you love, doing the things that make life worth living. Although this year’s reunion will be undergoing a bit of a transformation, with the festival being relocated to Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania from July 16-18, the tenants and philosophies that make Bisco what it is will undoubtedly be on full display.
In order to make a statement and let everyone know just how rejuvenated Camp Bisco truly is, LiveNation put together a lineup so stacked with quality artists that there should be no further doubt about the fate of Camp Bisco. The Disco Biscuits, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Tipper, Big Gigantic, Kill The Noise and STS9 are just a few of the massive names that brought tears to our eyes when the initial lineup was dropped. Furthermore in the last few weeks a cavalcade of live bands have been added to what had appeared to be a DJ heavy roster, ensuring that this year’s Bisco will possess a similar sense of diversity that past festivals have enjoyed. Have a look at a few of the artists we are excited to see added to this year’s lineup. Grab your tickets for this year’s Camp Bisco here!
One band that is in no need of introduction is the ever-entrancing and unpredictable Papadosio. The five piece band from North Carolina has established itself as one of the preeminent names in the growing world of livetronica.
