Eager to get a jump ahead of the slew of summer music festival dates that are sure to be forthcoming, Camp Bisco announced that it would return to Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, New York, July 12-14. The three-day music and arts festival – founded by Philadelphia transfusion band the Disco Biscuits – has grown exponentially over the years with 2012 marking the event’s 11th anniversary.
After a record-setting 10th anniversary in 2011, Camp’s success was not only shared by the musicians and fans that attended, but by the area as a whole. Over $16,000 was raised for Schenectady County, an area heavily affected by Hurricane Irene.
According to the official press release, new for this year, the festival will ‘expand to include a third main gate for faster entrance into the grounds, improved dance tents with a greater capacity, wooded camping options, increased venue facilities, and long distance shuttles from Albany, Baltimore, Boston, Buffalo, Burlington, New York City and Philadelphia.’
Early bird tickets are already on sale for $155 at campbisco.net. Once those are gone the price jumps up to $170 and will be $190 at the gate. VIP packages are also available.
Past artists have included The Disco Biscuits; LCD Soundsystem; Cut Copy; Wiz Khalifa; Skrillex; Ratatat; Ghostland Observatory; Shpongle Live; Nas and Damian Marley; Snoop Dogg; Method Man, Ghostface Killah, & Raekwon; Ween; Kid Cudi; Thievery Corporation; Girl Talk; DJ Shadow; Bassnectar; MSTRKRFT; The Roots; Pretty Lights; Rusko; Diplo; Major Lazer; Chromeo; Holy F#ck; Caribou; Yeasayer; STS9; and !!!.
The 2012 lineup promises to be the most expansive to date, including over 90 acts from around the globe.
