It took festival organizer Paul Levine five years of persistent talks with the String Cheese Incident’s management to finally book the iconic jam-band at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.
“It’s a labor of love,” he said, referring to the work that went into organizing last weekend’s inaugural Hulaween music festival.

In less than two weeks the Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY, will be taken over by Camp Bisco 10 Music and Arts Festival. The 200 acre property of rolling, flat, grassy fields will be the weekend home to over 100 performances, spinning roughly 15,000 + fans into the stratosphere. Thursday, July 7 through Saturday, July 9 will be packed with national and international artists looking for nothing more than to feed the frenzy of sweaty, smiling dancers and heady thinkers.
With still more details to come, the official Day-by-Day lineup has been announced with, naturally, the Disco Biscuits headlining each night. Directly from the CBX Press Release, the artists included are:
Approaching it's tenth year, Camp Bisco is an intimate electronic music festival catering to roughly 10,000 attendees each year. As the annual numbers steadily grow, the rolling hills - streamlined with tress, grass and dirt - of Indian Lookout Country Club, in Mariaville, New York, seems the perfect fit to house the sea of tents, RV's, and dirty, smiling festival goers. This year, the 3-day, 3-night event will take place on July 7 - 9.
The weekend long event is curated by Philadelphia natives, the Disco Biscuits. Their blended genre of electronic and jam music coined, "Super Jamband", by Biscuits guitarist Jon Gutwillig, attracts a rather specific flavor of persons effectively referred to as 'Wooks'. Wook isn't exactly a friendly term. In fact, no one would out right call themselves a Wook as it tends to exemplify a dirty, grimy hippy - not the muddy kind of dirty, more the scummy sort (or a combination of both) - but that's a part of the vibe and what sets Camp Bisco apart from other festivals. There's a darkness inside of the light that is gut-wrenchingly beautiful.
