If you live in the North Eastern region of the country chances are you’ve said to yourself at one point, “why isn’t there more EDM festivals around here?” With the exception of Electric Zoo and the inaugural year of Electric Daisy Carnival, there hasn’t been too many festivals to write home about; at least in comparison to the west coast based festivals and the worldly scene in Miami.
The lineup for Camp Bisco Eleven (July 12th - 14th) was released yesterday. Previous festivals featured such performers from STS9, LCD Soundsystem and MSTRKRFT to Snoop, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah and Method Man.
Camp Bisco, to those who have never heard, is a three-day festival founded by The Disco Biscuits, an electro, trance infused, jam band from Philadelphia. Camp, as regulars call it, takes place 30-minutes outside of Albany, NY in a little town called Mariaville, NY at the Indian Lookout Country Club. The venue is complete with two stages and multiple tents and is spread across 200 acres of green landscape.
This year Camp Bisco features renowned EDM stars that are sure to draw crowds that have yet to venture there in the past. In addition to The Disco Biscuits playing sets each night. Bassnectar, who has been a staple at previous Camps since he was still considered underground, will be headlining. Skrillex, Porter Robinson, Dada Life, Zeds Dead, A-Trak, Gramatik, Break Science, Simian Mobile Disco (DJ set), Shpongle Presents the Masquerade, Mimosa and The Knocks will be performing, to name a few. If live sets are your thing, Big Gigantic, Lotus, Brothers Past and Crystal Castles will be doing their thing.
Check out Camp Bisco’s website for all the artists, information and travel guides you’ll need. Transportation is going to be provided to and from the major metros surrounding the festival.
Tickets start at a reasonable $170.00 for general admission and go upward to $399.00 for VIP, which is always a good idea for three day long festivals in a forested small town outside of Albany, New York.
