Additions To Camp Bisco VI
Umphrey's McGee will be returning to the Camp Bisco stage after taking a year off. In that year, they have refined, improved, and expanded their sound with some major festivals plays such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, 10k Lakes, and All Good. Their success in 2006 culminated in their amazing performance on New Year's Eve at The Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, and this summer Umphrey's McGee will be opening for The Dave Matthews Band at several large amphitheaters.

We are extremely excited to announce the sixth installment of Camp Bisco, to be held on August 16 - 18, at Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY. This year's festivities will be extended by one day, and will feature three nights of music, and two full days. For the first time in the history of Camp Bisco, the Disco Biscuits will be playing all three nights. To make this Camp Bisco a positive experience for everyone, we will be working directly with the Camp Creek crew, who have been working at ILCC for years, as well as the land owners and the ILCC staff to make this the best home for Camp Bisco for years to come.
After listening to all your concerns from last year, we sought out for a venue that would be more pleasing to you, the fans. ILCC offers almost 200 acres of beautiful, flat, privately owned land in upstate New York, only 20 miles northwest of Albany. There will not be a shortage of land and all attendees will camp next to their cars and have the use of the many great facilities the venue has to offer including flushable toilets and clean bathroom facilities as well as men's and women's showers.
We ask that you be respectful to the land and the employees that run the grounds. While the front-gate search has been known to be thorough, once inside, you are free to move about the areas without the hassles of repeated searches. There is NO glass of any kind allowed on the property, along with no weapons, fireworks, or illegal substances. If you follow these simple rules, Camp Bisco will be a wonderful experience for all. Please remember that these rules are enforced to keep all attendees safe while they are on the property.
For those who choose not to camp, there are a wide variety of hotels and lodging within 15-20 minutes of ILCC in Schenectady, NY. We will also be sectioning off a large, flat field for RV parking only. Stay tuned to www.campbisco.net and www.discobiscuits.com for more details on this as well as all other information pertaining to the event.
Simon Posford, along with DJ OTT and Youth, will be performing a live set of Hallucinogen in DUB for the first time ever in the USA and only the second time ever world-wide. This show, which will be performed on live bass, keyboards, and other instruments, will surely be one of the highlights of a great weekend! They will be performing brand new music as well as the classics from the In Dub album.
