BISCO FESTS ANNOUNCE NEW LOCATIONS

The Disco Biscuits are pleased to announce the relocation of their two biggest events of the summer, Camp Bisco III: Señor Boombox and Bisco Nights. Señor Boombox, to be held August 23rd and 24th, was forced to leave Wilmer’s Park in Brandywine, MD when Prince George’s County officials reinterpreted the zoning ordinances governing the park and decided not to allow music festivals at Wilmer’s. Fortunately, the band and Walther Productions were able to find a new and better home for Camp Bisco III at the 130 acre Salansky Farms in beautiful Union Dale, Pennsylvania. The convenient location, a mere 150 miles from both Philadelphia and New York City, boasts both wooded and field camping areas, a natural amphitheatre for music and no musical curfew. The line-up (which features Alex Patterson of the Orb for 2 DJ sets, The New Deal, Lake Trout, DJ Logic, Dr. Didg, Particle, The Motet, Brothers Past, the Ally, Moonraker, DJ Seishi and more) and dates of the event will remain the same.

Tickets are available at JamBas eTickets

Bisco Nights has moved to the Tussey Mountain Amphitheatre in Boalsburg, PA, just minutes from State College. Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Central Pennsylvania, the ski mountain has an ideal concert area, and has hosted legendary performers ranging from Bob Dylan to Jefferson Starship, and Govt. Mule to your very own, The Disco Biscuits. Performing at the festival will be The Biscuits, Electron, the Cookie Dusters, the Ally, Brothers Past, and Psychedelic Breakfast. At the base of the mountain is the Tussey Mountain Family Fun Park; the park boasts a wide range of amenities that will be available to Bisco, including a skate park, batting cages, Go-Karts and a Par-3 golf course and driving range.

The move was made, when in a sporting mood, The Disco Biscuits decided to unveil their first annual BiscOlympics at Nights. The event will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday August 7th at the Tussey Mountain Family Fun Center. A full on color war will ensue with competition in areas including, but not limited to, long drive competition, 3-par pitch and putt tourney, Go-Kart racing, skate-board/roller-blading competition, Tug-O-War, and batting competition. Enrollment in the Olympics is free of charge with a Bisco Nights ticket, but limited spaces are available. Please e-mail BiscOlympics@discobiscuits.com for enrollment, you must include your Bisco Tix confirmation number in the text of your e-mail. Please specify your experience level in skateboarding/roller-blading and golf. You will be placed on an appropriate team based on experience level. The winning team will receive copies of Señor Boombox (the new Megaforce Records release which will be in stores September 17th), Bisco Lives II (a limited release due in stores on July 30th), and tickets to Camp Bisco III.
