In a surprise move, The Disco Biscuits announced today that the annual Camp Bisco festival will not be taking place in 2014. The massive northeastern festival mixing the best in jamtronica with the biggest stars in all of EDM has sold out its past three years, but will not be making its return to Mariahville, NY this July.
MCP Presents, the producer of the event since the third incarnation of Philly-based jam/electronica act's annual festival, is busy preparing for CounterPoint Music Festival 2014, which itself took a year off last year. It's unclear yet whether or not the festival will return to Indian Lookout Country Club, or fiind a new location.
Here is the statement the band has released:
Camp Bisco is always one of the highlights of the year for us and all of our fans. After much deliberation and tireless efforts to make Camp happen this year, we had to make the tough decision to take a year off. We will be coming back in 2015 with an amazing event that will cater to the needs, wants and wishes of Camp Bisco's most faithful and valued attendees! Camp Bisco, which has featured suchsuperstar musical acts as LCD Soundsystem, Snoop Dogg,NAS, Macklemore, Skrillex and many more, has sold out its last three years in a row.
The Biscuits, MCP Presents and our amazing community of fans and friends have built this festival from the ground up and we take extreme pride in what we have all created together. We have shared such amazing experiences throughout the last decade and a half of Camp and we look forward to doubling down on that after this year off. We are so thankful for all your rabid support, so please stay tuned, there will be some amazing announcements right around the corner.
