Get ready for Camp Bisco 2012! Dates for the 11th annual electronic/rock festival in upstate New York have been announced to be July 12-14th. After a record breaking 10th anniversary in 2011, the festival organizers have spent their "off-time" since July not only giving back to the community of Schenectady County and the surrounding areas by raising $16,000 for those effected by Hurricane Irene, but also taking necessary steps to insure that its fans have the best possible experience. 2012 promises bigger acts (supposedly 90+ of them too), improved grounds and the same great vibe that has made Camp Bisco an annual summer favorite for east coasters.
Here's the press release...
After a record setting 10th anniversary, Camp Bisco, the three-day music and arts festival founded by The Disco Biscuits, will return to Mariaville, New York this July 12 through 14, 2012. Continuing in the same tradition of introducing groundbreaking artists, while elevating the level of talent that has turned Camp Bisco into the country's largest and longest running electronic/rock music festivals, the festival will be introducing many venue enhancements to provide a higher level of enjoyment for the fans. A regular part of many Top Ten lists, the festival has featured performers such as: 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 will be the most expansive to date, including over 90 acts from around the globe.
