Camp Bisco, which started as a gathering of local Disco Biscuits fans, in the past half-decade has spawned into one of the preeminent festivals in the country, garnering the attention of Rolling Stone magazine and The New York Times.
Attendance increased by 50 percent from 2009 to 2010 and almost 70 percent from 2010 to 2011. Check out complete lineups and attendance figures for the last 10 Camp Bisco's in our History Lesson retrospective feature.
With electronic music well entrenched in the mainstream - Skrillex recently took home three Grammys - and The Disco Biscuits playing fewer and fewer shows, this year's Camp will undoubtedly be one of the biggest and most talked about in years (for better or worse).
