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.

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.

In addition, this year's silent disco utilize enhanced headphones for a better listening experience.
