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.
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.
Check back on our take from last year’s festival here, grab some tickets and start planning your camping trip.
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…)
One of the east coast’s few exceptional three-day camping festivals is upon us this weekend. A three-hour road trip north of New York City brings you to Indian Lookout Country Club where The Disco Biscuits will host the 11th annual Camp Bisco. If you’re a dance music faithful venturing upstate, you’re probably excited to test your auditory boundaries and explore your musical palette. This year’s line up is limitless; the genres and subgenres are getting more extensive and the fusions of different sounds are more rampant than ever. The festival goes from Thursday July 12 to Saturday July 14 and will feature two main stages, two dance tents, a silent disco, and an up-and-comer stage. Jump past the break for a full run down of who to see and what stages to explore.
