OWSLA and Boys Noize Records holding hands on their own festival stage is a match made in heaven. Hats off to Camp Bisco for introducing the marriage first. The yearly Disco Biscuits-led soiree has slowly become more accepting of electronic music; now arguably one of EDM’s biggest summer attractions in New York State. Introducing the experimental label coupling for a bass-hungry audience in the foothills of upstate New York seemed fitting. Festival goers came in full force for Destructo, Nicky Thayer, and KOAN Sound’s kickoff, all building the momentum for OWSLA vs BNR’s most memorable set. Seven Lions pulled out all the stops.
Dance music aficionados favorite adult sleepaway camp is set to open its gates on July 11th and, in anticipation, the event organizers have released set times. As with any announcement of this nature there is bound to be some overlap, so get scouring and resolve any set time conflicts in advance. Click below the jump for the full list of set times.
Since its inaugural year in 1999, Camp Bisco has grown into one of the East Coast’s premier festivals. While it’s admittedly less glamorous than other events of its kind, the no-frills style is much of its appeal; if you want to get down and dirty, you go to Bisco. This year the festival’s founders have again successfully wrangled an appropriate lineup for both their usual concert stages as well as their silent disco section. Some of the noteworthy bookings include Bondax, Seven Lions, and Tommy Trash. As usual, scattered among the predominately dance music focused lineup are a few outliers like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Toro y Moi, and Vermont jam band Twiddle. Click below the jump to check out the full stage lineup and a list of who’s performing at the silent disco.
Tickets for the festival can be purchased via the Camp Bisco website.
In a time when standing on stage and mixing just doesn’t cut it anymore, Destroid are taking the live idea to another level. We reported earlier this year about Excision, Downlink, and KJ Sawka forming dubstep supergroup Destroid, and after their first show it seems dubstep might not be dead after all. Using MIDI guitars and a modified drum kit, Destroid proves that live music and dubstep can be one in the same. If you think this set is prerecorded, think again. They’ll also be playing at this year’s Camp Bisco.
“All drums parts & bass samples are played live, in Ableton samplers and drum tracks. We had to actually split our 75 minute set in to two separate projects as Ableton could not handle having an entire sets worth of individual samplers/drum racks for each bass sample/drum hit.”
The 12th annual Camp Bisco is back with the second wave of artists for its 2013 lineup. Back in February we announced who to expect at Lookout Country Club, and now it appears the diversity will continue as the event adds dubstep pioneers Destroid, French teen sensation Madeon, genre-defying Seven Lions, Danny Brown, Bondax, Perseus, and Moon Boots — in addition to several others. The late night tents have also been announced: OWSLA vs. Boys Noize Records and French Express will rep some of dance music’s most promising labels for the three-day festival.
Tickets are now at $185 and will rise quickly to $199 now that the full lineup is out there. Click here to get yours now.Posted by
The annual Camp Bisco Festival has revealed its 2013 lineup. The event will return to Indian Lookout Country Club in upstate New York and for its 12th year taking place from July 11 through 13th. The lineup includes the festival’s founders and organizers The Disco Biscuts, alongside Bassnectar, Wolfgang Gartner, Boys Noize, and plenty more.
Camp Bisco has become one of the East Coast’s premiere camping festivals with its eclectic mixture of acts, amazing vibes, and great people. Look forward to nu-disco grooves from Areoplane, trap mosh pits with Baauer and RL Grime, long jam sessions with Lotus and STS9, and even big room electro from Tommy Trash.
Breaking: Counterpoint Festival moving to New York this summer (Update: Counterpoint will return to Atlanta, New York addition still unconfirmed)
The producers of Lollapalooza, Lights All Night, and Camp Bisco are bringing their very own Counterpoint Music Festival to New York this summer. The town of Saugerties, NY voted unanimously on Wednesday granting conditional approval for the dates of July 11-13, barring the securing of mass gathering permits. MCP Presents CEO, Jonathan Fordin, expects the festival to make an announcement, including a lineup, within two weeks. Located two hours north from NYC and an hour and a half south of Camp Bisco, this will be the first concert hosted at Winston Farm since Woodstock ’94; where 350,000 muddy fans gathered to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Woodstock. Considering Atlanta’s lineup last year, we are excited to see what Counterpoint has in store for New York.
Just to clarify, Counterpoint plans to add a second location, in addition to Atlanta.
Update: Counterpoint will return to Atlanta and the addition of a New York festival remains unconfirmed. No formal announcement has been made yet about New York, but standby for more information soon.

We honestly wish that Mondays were a little more mellow because we have a hard time fitting in all the news. There was a TON of music released today from Digitalism & Tommy Trash, 4 strings, Eva Simons, Stefan Dabruck & Tocadisco, and even remixes of an Usher track. SHM discussed their new single with MTV, Arty released a video from Alesso’s 21st birthday party and even more. If you’re having a hard time keeping up, don’t worry because there is even more past the break.
Have you ever gone to a show with a face and left without one? This happens to me every time I see A-Trak. So many factors come together to make him one of the greatest – and besides his raw music abilities, the facts speak for themselves. He was 15 years old when he claimed his first of five titles at the DMC World Championships – a competition that measures mixing and scratching abilities. He opened for the Swedes at their Madison Square Garden show – which, whether you’d like to admit it or not, was a defining moment in the history of dance music. His monthly Fool’s Gold Radio podcast are one of few that I thoroughly enjoy playing on repeat, and his live sets are so lively, different, and imaginative that you know you’re in for a treat every time he takes to the decks.
An easy road trip north of New York City brought us to the grounds of the Disco Biscuit’s 11th annual Camp Bisco. A land far removed from our conventional lifestyles was home to the east coast’s most superior three-day camping music festival. Once predominately jam-band centric, this year’s line up included many new-age electronic music acts. Along with the Biscuits, festival headliners included Bassnectar and Skrillex, and reached subgenres far in between jamtronica, dubstep, electro, and house. In addition, A-Trak and Skrillex hosted their own label tents and brought some friends along the way. (more…)Posted by
