The music mayhem is back at Montage Mountain this summer as Camp Bisco gears up for its 2018 event. Offering a historic collection of artists, this year’s festival is guaranteed to be a delight for both bassheads and jam enthusiasts alike.
Last year, despite monsoon-like conditions, an insane lineup consisting of Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, GRiZ, and (of course) The Disco Biscuits rocked the small-town Pennsylvania countryside with epic performances that rivaled the lightning-riddled act of Mother Nature herself. This year, the festival has doubled down on the madness and has pieced together yet another mind-blowing lineup that is sure to ensure their status as one of the east coast’s premiere electronic festivals.
Once again, Bassnectar is set to headline Camp Bisco alongside fellow titans of bass Excision and Tipper, a trifecta that still has Bassheads collecting their jaws off the floor since it’s announcement back in February. As always, The Disco Biscuits will be maintaining their standard six sets of the weekend, but are accompanied by the Bonobo Live Band, Lotus, and STS9 as their fellow top tier jam acts.
The undercard is not to be underestimated as well, brandishing killer live acts like Boombox, Lettuce, and Papadosio, bass staples like Snails, G Jones, and Boogie T, and legendary acts like Ghostface Killah and DJ Jazzy Jeff to sprinkle in some diversity; and for the third year running, 12th Planet continues his status as a Camp Bisco mainstay.
Aside from the impeccable musical lineup, Camp Bisco’s residency at Scranton’s Montage Mountain allows the festival to showcase one of summertime’s most glorious aspects: water parks. The plethora of activities littered across the mountainside are what make Camp Bisco second-to-none on the east coast.
Get a little too hot while checking out DJ Jazzy Jeff’s fire set? No sweat, go bomb down one of the many water slides, or float along in musical bliss in the lazy river. Need an adrenaline rush? Check out the park from a bird’s-eye view on the mountain’s sick zip line. However you want to keep cool, however you want to keep up the excitement, Bisco’s got you covered.
Whatever your fancy, be it sultry solos or bombastic bass, Camp Bisco is the place to be this summer. Will we be seeing you on the mountain next month? Are you camping or getting a hotel? Let us know in the comments below!
