The Disco Biscuits have confirmed Camp Bisco's return to the festival's new home at Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania on July 14-16. Additionally, the jamtronica pioneers have announced some upcoming tour dates including their return to New York following their lengthy New Year's run.
The Disco Biscuits members Marc Brownstein, Allen Aucoin, Jon Gutwillig and Aron Magner will hit the road again in early February, kicking things off with three nights at The Fillmore in their founding place of Philadelphia, JamBands.com reports. March sees the band playing Aura Music and Arts Festival in Florida before holding down a two-night run at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester just outside of New York City, where they will be joined by The New Deal.
The months leading up to Camp Bisco find the band playing the Sweetwater 420 Festival in Atlanta, followed by a four-night takeover of the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver. As usual the band has various different ticket options for fans who want to attend multiple dates of any given run without necessarily breaking the bank. Head on over to their website for more information about each of these tour stops.
This July marks the festival's second summer at Montage Mountain Ski Resort after calling Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, New York home for nearly 14 years. The Biscuits founded the annual festival in the late 90s with the purpose of bringing the jam band and electronic dance music scenes together for several days of camping and dancing, but a slew of drug-related deaths and other incidents in recent years had led to the festival taking a hiatus in 2014.
The festival's successful reincarnation in the new location last summer featured the usual lineup of hundreds of livetronica, trance fusion and electronic bass music acts including Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Snails, Tipper, STS9 and Big Gigantic among others. It also boasted a stage located right next to a wave pool, attendee access to the waterpark rides, an entire village of hippie wares for sale and voter registration opportunities with the nonpartisan nonprofit organization known as HeadCount. It's no surprise that the festival is returning to the new location this summer.
As JamBase.com reports, the band and festival organizers shared a letter this week alongside the confirmed festival dates and location. In that letter, the bandmembers state: "We, along with our Camp Bisco team, have learned a lot over the last year in our new home and are looking forward to making 2016 the best Camp Bisco ever - from the days spent on the waterslides and the nights spent at the stages, we'll be working hard to make Montage the most spectacular place to spend a weekend with music and friends come July."
While the lineup has not yet been announced, fans already know for sure they can count on several sets from the Biscuits. Tickets are already on sale; for more information head over to the festival's website. Check out the Aftermovie from last year's event below.
