LIVE: Camp Bisco X Recap [Barre.me]

Camp Bisco X, Mariaville, NY

This past Saturday I headed to Mariaville, NY to rekindle with Camp Bisco, Northeast’s largest electronic-rock festival. It had been five years since I last attended Disco Biscuits’s musical creation and I found myself in the middle of a much bigger and louder maelstrom. The 10th annual music and arts festival boasted more than 100 performances on five stages over the course of three days and three nights. I was still on the West Coast the first two days but I had the opportunity to take pictures from the comfort of the press pits on Day #3. Roaming from stage to stage I made my way through a sea of hula hoopers and scantily clad youth to snap a few more photos. Read on to find out if Camp Bisco lived up to their expectations (hint: look above).

I took nearly 900 photos with both my Canon 5D Mark II and my new Fujifilm X100 on this bright, sunny, high 80s Saturday. I trimmed that set to 95 shots, all available on Flickr. I divided this material between the attendees and the performers, below. If this doesn’t do the trick, you can also access photos by act types, e.g. all bands, all DJs, and all rappers, or by stages, e.g. Main Stage, Grooveshark Tent, and Dance Tent. That’s OCD right there.

Camp Bisco sold out this year, the lineup had a lot to offer. I was excited to take photos of personal favorite Cut Copy, James Murphy (Special Disco Version), Ratatat, Ghostland Observatory, The New Deal, RJD2, and Orchard Lounge but I realized back in June that none of these bands were going to play on Saturday. If you had the chance to see them, comment away at the end of this post. This wasn’t going to ruin my day for a bit, I enjoyed discovering new bands back in 2006 and expected the same in 2011. Hell, I was even open to get “wobbled” real good.

Camp Bisco

Be prepared to have your mind fried once again, as the annual, three-day summer fest Camp Bisco is on the calendar this weekend, and being as how this is the tenth anniversary bash, you can bet that things are going to be extra super-fine. Host band Disco Biscuits will be performing all three days.

The Indian Lookout Country Club in Pattersonville is once again the site of the festivities. The parking lot opens at 8am on Thursday for on-site campers; 3pm for all others.

The music fires up at 2:15pm on Thursday, and before the grounds close at 12noon on Sunday, there’s gonna be a whole lotta music and partyin’. Sleep? What’s that?
