Camp Bisco returns to the picturesque Montage Mountain in the heart of Scranton, Pennsylvania this summer. Dating back to the late ’90s, Camp Bisco was founded by the band The Disco Biscuits in order for them to perform at a set time that matched their audience; as well as put a spotlight on other similar acts and up and coming talent. Now in its 17th year, the Camp Bisco will return to the world-class concert venue and waterpark for an epic three-day escape. Dubbed ‘the ultimate escape to your reality’, Camp Bisco is the best event of it’s kind and is eagerly waiting to welcome campers, old and new to the escape of a lifetime!
This year’s lineup will welcome more than 50 of the hottest DJs and musical talent, who will perform across three stages. Bringing the annual Camp Bisco gathering back to Montage Mountain, host band The Disco Biscuits all perform not one, two or three, but six sets throughout the weekend!
Day one will see The Disco Biscuits headlining the event alongside STS9 and Tipper; as well as Liquid Snails and Space Jesus + Friends. Day one will also welcome 1788-L, Anomalie, Ekali, Ghost-Note, Herobust, Mr. Bill, Mr. Billgates, Tank and Yheti on the second stage. Finally, Evanoff, Huxley Anne, Mersiv, Xie and Yak Attack will also showcase their musical talent.
The Disco Biscuits will perform twice on day two, headlining the show alongside Bassnectar, Ganja White Night and Twiddle. The second stage will host a wide range of talent on day two. You can catch Aqueous, Ill. Gates, Jack Harlow, Jade Cicada, Kalya Scintilla & Eve Olution, Manic Focus, Minnesota, Octave Cat and Pnuma and many more. Birocratic, Dorfex Bos, The Fritz and Kaivon will also make a Bisco appearance on day two.
The final day of Camp Bisco will see The Disco Biscuits perform three times, headlining the show with Odesza and Umphrey’s McGee. The main stage will also welcome Liquid Stranger and Rusko. Next up is Bleep Bloop, Kasbo, Kursa, Louis Futon, Lsdream, The Soul Rebels, Sunsquabi, Walker & Royce and Yung Bae; who will perform on the second stage. Finally, a large range of up and coming talent, including Eminence Enemble, Litz, Plantrae, Slugwife Takeover, Seppa & Broken Note, Sodown, Stickybuds and Tweed will perform throughout the day.
In addition to the massive lineup, Camp Bisco will also welcome the exclusive Wellness Program; featuring yoga, stretching sessions and even a 5k race!
Camp Bisco is welcoming back Deb Brownstein to ‘help you wake up’; to the beats of Kalya Scintilla. You can take part in the daily yoga sessions from 10:30 – 11:30 am, just above the Waves Stage on Friday and Saturday. If you have a yoga mat, bring it along; but RaveNectar has also generously donated yoga mats for the event.
Camp Bisco is also offering daily stretch sessions by Lisa Shanken from Tri-Wellness. Offering stretching sessions and wellness tips geared towards staying loose and enjoying the festival, you can find Lisa and her team each day at the main stage. You can take part in mini-classes prior to each set. Sessions start 15 minutes before each set until 7 pm and go for around 10 minutes.
This year marks the 4th annual edition of the ‘Brownie 5K’ – an annual 5K race with Marc Brownstein. Taking place at 11:30 am on Friday, the race is entirely downhill and goes from the traffic circle at the top of Montage Mountain Road Town to the baseball stadium. Camp Bisco has partnered with Kirby’s Race Timing and is offering official timing with GPS chipped bibs and a finish line. Water will be provided at the start and finish lines; as well as distance and directional markers along the course, finish line photos, transportation back up the mountain and more. You can register for the race on the Camp Bisco website.
If you’re not camping and looking for a safe, reliable and convenient way to get to and from the festival, Camp Bisco offers round-trip shuttle transportation services. Shuttles will begin around 30 minutes before the music starts and operate continuously until 30 minutes after the music ends each day. Shuttles will service guests of the Hampton Inn Montage Mountain and Comfort Suites and Townplace Suites and Springhill Suites.
