What is Camp Bisco? [VIDEO]
What started as a small event in 1999 with a few hundred people has exploded into a event that draws over 17,000 fans from all over the country. It takes place in a sleepy western Schenectady County township called Mariaville. Grab your hula hoops, and head to a three day music festival called Camp Bisco. This year is the 10th anniversary and Camp Bisco has sold out weeks ago. Organizers are urging people who do have a ticket to not even attempt to get in. Doesn’t this sound familiar, like back in the late 60′s in a town called Bethel?
Camp Bisco is at the Indian Lookout Country Club and approximately 100 artists are set to perform around the clock Thursday, Friday and Saturday. A combination of campers, 5 stages and vendors use about 200 acres.
Tickets for Camp Bisco range between $500 for VIP tickets and $160 for a three day pass. In the past Snoop Dogg and Method Man have performed, but this year no mainstream act is scheduled.
As one concert attendee stated “It’s a great place to people watch and hear awesome music” “You’ll see everything from bands to some of the best mix DJ’s performing”.
