The nonstop party of Camp Bisco took over The Pavilion at Montage Mountain and the water park next door from Thursday, July 14 through Saturday, July 16, returning for its second year to Scranton with the organized chaos of dance music, light shows, and summertime fun.
Running since 1999 and curated by Philadelphia electronic jamband the Disco Biscuits, the 2016 festival lineup included ODESZA, Big Grizmatik (Big Gigantic, Griz, and Gramatik), Lotus, RL Grime, STS9, Zeds Dead, Lettuce, Anderson Paak & The Free Nationals, Dopapod, American Babies, 12th Planet, Crywolf, and many more EDM, jam, hip-hop, and DJ acts.
It’s not all sex, drugs, and crazy music, though – the ever-evolving festivities included a wellness program this year with yoga, health workshops, and even a 5K run.
Did you know Camp Bisco had its own 5k race this year? Downhill wasn't so bad, but that last kilometer up Montage Mountain is a killer! #Scranton #WilkesBarre #Moosic #NEPA #Pennsylvania #NEPAScene #music #band #concert #show #fest #festival #musicfestival #musicfest #bisco #campbisco #discobiscuits #5k #5krun #runner #running #finishline #race #run #5krace #fun
