After 12 years, Camp Bisco has announced that it will be taking a year off and will return in 2015. Rumors have been swirling that the festival might be in jeopardy after reports that the festival would not be returning to Indian Lookout Country Club in upstate New York. Ultimately, it appears that the Disco Biscuits and promoters MCP Presents could not organize the festival in time to make it live up to the expectations that have been set after so many years of memories.
Camp Bisco has been the premier festival for electronic music and jam bands in the Northeast since it began in 1999. The festival has featured electronic acts like Skrillex, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Zedd, and Porter Robinson in the last few years
Although it is sad for many Bisco fans that the festival is taking a year off, the festival had outgrown the venue in recent years. In their Facebook announcement, Camp Bisco noted that they have sold out the last three years, and as a two-time Bisco attendee, I can tell you there were times when I felt like I needed more space.
It is clear that MCP Presents and the Disco Biscuits want to make sure that Camp Bisco remains a special place for their fans, and it seems like the best decision was to take a year off and come back with the best festival possible.
