Known as the Northeast’s largest electronic-rock festival; Camp Bisco, is back for its eleventh year. This will be a 3-day event, from July 12th-14th. The event includes 5 stages total, with not only an “up and coming” stage, but two dance tents for silent disco and international dance acts.

With an attendance of only 800 in 1999, last years 2011 festival accommodated 25,000 lively campers. As for this year, we expect an even larger crowd to storm the Indian Lookout Country Club grounds in Mariaville, NY.

The 10th annual Camp Bisco Music Festival will take place in Mariaville, New York on July 7-9, 2011. Located about 20 minutes outside of Albany, NY at Indian Lookout Country Club, Camp Bisco is the Northeast’s premier music festival.

For those of you not familiar with Camp Bisco, it’s an annual music festival focused on live and electronic dance music hosted by the electronic jamband, The Disco Biscuits. This year’s lineup includes a healthy mix of bands and DJs, as well as a rapper or two including headliner Wiz Khalifa. Headlining bands include; The Disco Biscuits, Cut Copy, The New Deal, Lotus, Death From Above 1979, Ghostland Observatory, Conspirator, Break Science with RJD2, Lettuce, Yeasayer, RATATAT, and even the first ever U.S. appearance of Shpongle Live band, a live psychedelic downtempo and ambient band, which includes eclectic instruments such as the flute and cello, as well as live opera singers and dancers. The headlining DJs include; Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, MSTRKRFT, Wolfgang Gartner, Rusko, Skrillex, Orchard Lounge, Holy Ghost!, and Special Disco Version, which is a special DJ set by James Murphy and Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem. For a complete Camp Bisco lineup click here or scroll down. For the official Camp Bisco X set times, and full Camp Bisco Schedule 2011, scroll down.

This year’s festival features 5 stages including two side-by-side main stages for quicker changeovers in between sets, which equals more music. In addition, this year will be the first year that the festival features two late night dance tents for more late night options. Camp Bisco 9 in 2010 saw the addition of a silent disco. For those of you who don’t know what a silent disco is, it is a disco (concert) where the music is listened to via headphones, and not a traditional PA system or speakers. This year, Camp Bisco X will feature a much larger two channel silent disco. Two channels means there will be two DJ’s performing on stage simultaneously and the listeners will be able to switch between them and decide who they want to dance to. Other new amenities include a new main gate for faster entrance into the festival, daily music workshops and seminars, and a larger capacity late night tent.

Update – Camp Bisco Artist Additions, & Cancellations

Last week, Camp Bisco X announced both good news as well as bad news. First the good news: Borgore has been added as a last minute addition to the Camp Bisco X lineup. Additionally, rapper Redman has been added to the bill and is scheduled to play along side of Break Science and RJD2. Break Science has a history of collaborating with rappers at Camp, as last year they played with Talib Kweli as well as David Murphy from Sts9. Unfortunately, Rusko had to cancel his gig at Camp Bisco X due to last minute changes in his European touring schedule. Fellow UK dubstep producer, Borgore, will be filling in for Rusko.

The event will take place late night at the Showcase Stage, which is otherwise designated for up and coming artists. In addition, this year’s silent disco utilize enhanced headphones for a better listening experience. Finally, Silent Frisco has said on Campbisco.net, “Expect site design, art installations, and a two channel battle where the “winner” will be as clear as colored lights.” This year’s silent disco lineup includes: Nigel, PlayLow, DJ Thibault, Bookworm, Panic Bomber, Beam and Deem, Pink Skull, Motion Potion, Proper Motion, Michetti, Thump, Supersillyus, Harmsworth, D.V.S., The Golden Pony, DJ Marmon, Outlet, Galdytron!, The Dark Flow, Moe Pope, and DJ Theory and Tone.

The next night’s bash will be a “Newer Wave” 80′s-themed party, so be sure to wear neon. These two features of Camp Bisco X will give festival-goers a new and unique festival experience, which is just one reason why Camp Bisco X is one of the top festivals of summer 2011.
