Camp Bisco made its long awaited comeback this year on July 16-18.  Festival goers across the country loaded up their cars headed to Montage Mountain for a weekend of full of madness, groovy tunes, and feverish entertainment.

For the first time in Bisco’s history, the festival was held at its new location, Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA.  The grounds boasted attractions such as a water park and a towering zip line, with campers setting up shop all over the mountain.  The weather was gorgeous – sunny and hot all 3-days, making the wave pool and water slides particularly appealing. The hilly terrain forced campers to get creative and made the grounds a bit hard to navigate.  However, once you made your way down to the main stage, the surrounding mountains were a beautiful complement to the thumping sound system.

Electric City, the main stage served as the focal point for Bisco’s most severe craziness.  As expected, The Disco Biscuits did not disappoint and delivered six mind-blowing sets full of improvisation and creativity.  Their uniqueness stems from the way they create music, fusing together a plethora of genres and morphing it into electronic music.  They have been fundamental in creating the genre of livetronica or trance fusion.

To name a few, Subset, Pretty Lights, Classix, Cherub, and Mr. Carmack threw down dope sets that satisfied all your cravings for bass-heavy, trap, and future funk sounds.

On Saturday night, Bassnectar hopped on stage and announced “Bisco, we made it back, this is the revenge right here!” . And from there, went directly into an hour-long mind-bending set full of pulsating bass and insane drops. Bassnectar went all out with his light show, filling the entire venue with bending and beaming shapes and colors.

Overall, avid Bisco attendees may debate the event’s new layout and festival location.  Nonetheless, the Bisco community of love, acceptance, and good music was ever-present.  Overall, it was a hell of a trip and a magical experience. While the organization may have been a bit of a mess at times, it ultimately made for a beautiful and marvelous entropy.
