After finishing up their first European tour and showing up as headliners in some recent festival announcements, the Disco Biscuits continue to flesh out an impressive 2008 tour schedule. We recently came across some rather defensive Bisco fanatics, but here’s even more news that ought to brighten their spirits (and bolster their defenses):
Today, MCP Presents and The Disco Biscuits have confirmed the first list of performers slated for Camp Bisco VII, the seventh annual three-day music and arts festival in Mariaville, New York this July 17-19, 2008. The 25+ performer lineup at the multi-stage camping festival includes:
The Disco Biscuits (3 nights)
Snoop Dogg (performing with a live band)
DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist
Younger Brother Live
The New Deal
Tea Leaf Green
Eliot Lipp (Live PA);
More artists and festival details will be announced in the coming weeks.
Maybe the next time some Philly bloggers want to talk shit about the band, fans will just point to this lineup and say, “Snoop disagrees….beeyatch!”
If you’re curious about Camp Bisco, here’s a bit more info from the Camp Bisco website:
Camp Bisco VII will once again be held at the picturesque Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, New York. The venue is located approximately 20 minutes travel time from Albany, New York, and sits on 200 acres of rolling, flat grass fields. The grounds come equipped with full bathrooms; which include flush toilets and showers, as well as 24/7 bathroom attendants. Festival goers will have access to a full bar on site and a general store, which sells almost every necessity for a comfortable and care free experience. The 25+ performers will be spread out over 3 days and nights, and two stages, including a late night dance tent. The dance tent promises to be an Audio & Visual experience not to be missed!!!
