Additionally, the Showcase Stage will also be the setting for the always popular Silent Disco.  Sponsored by Silent Frisco, the late night experience will feature enhanced headphones to better showcase performers Nigel; Play Low; DJ Thibault; Bookworm; Panic Bomber; Beem and Deem; Pink Skull; Motion Potion; Proper Motion; Michetti, Thump; Supersillyus; Harmsworth; DJ Marmon; Outlet; Galdytron; The Dark Flow; Moe Pope; and DJ Theory and Tone.

To help in further showcasing the tenth anniversary celebration, Camp Bisco has tapped BangOn! NYC to curate two nights of special themed parties.  Beginning with Friday’s "Disco-pocalypse," a debaucherous 70s-style dance party and continuing with the "Newer Wave" 80s-themed installation, the parties will push the boundaries of what people have come to expect from the Camp Bisco festival experience.

Finally, Camp Bisco 10 is proud to announce new promotional partnerships with tastemaker blog Thrillist, ringtone provider Myxer, music discovery platform Grooveshark, and dance music online retailer Satellite Records.  These new partners will help enhance the festival experience through various initiatives throughout the festival grounds.
