Liking the day to day, but they could have scheduled the set breaks and LNs a little better. Sad to see they caved and allowed skrillex a LN, especially with all the other talent thursday night (no New Deal or Cut Copy LN?). and how can you give bassnectar and ratatat an hr long set break instead of a legit LN spot? Should have given bassnectars spot to DFA since they only have about an hr of material anyway.
Not really a huge fan of wolfgang either, would have loved to see treasure fingers, neon indian, or yeasayer get that spot.
Still, loving this line up so much. can't wait for a full schedule. By far the best electronic/dance festival in the country (Ultra, EDC and Ezoo are way to typical)
Sorry for the triple post, but I just noticed that Break Science/RJD2 on the schedule says "Break Science Featuring RJD2 and Redman" now. HOLY quacking SHIT, I mean I'm not gonna pretend like Redman is or ever was the best rapper around or even close, but still, that shiz is awesome.

So my girlfriend and I just got tickets. We've been on the fence about an entire roadtrip involving Bisco for over a month. Long story short, we get everything done that needed to be done and the money was right, so we sprung and grabbed tickets. For those who care, we're leaving Knoxville in the morning and spending a few days in Boone, until the 4th, then a few days in NYC with a buddy of mine from undergrad, then heading up to Bisco. Afterward we're spending a few days with family in Erie, PA, then headed to Pitchfork in Chicago (got those tix in March) before heading back to Knoxville on the 18th.
Now for the reason I'm posting (other than because I'm so pumped!!)- is there any sort of inforoo caravan or anything going to Bisco? It's literally just my girlfriend and I who are attending Bisco (we have other friends going to Pitchfork), and we were thinking about joining up with some people on the boards here in anyone is interested. We're easy-going and are festival vets (both have 5 Roo's under our belts). We party, but not hard enough to keep you awake or anything like that. I read through the board and couldn't find a big caravan or anything. If you have a group or whatever and are interested, PM me and we can figure something out. We can meet up whenever since we'll be in NYC beforehand.
I think I may end up at the fest just for Saturday. I live 10 minutes away, but Bonnaroo has always been my festival priority for the summer and I couldn't ever afford both. I really want to go just for the fact that it seems blasphemous that I never have. Well, that and the fact that I can see Neon Indian and Yeasayer who I love, plus see DFA1979, Bisco, Bassnectar and Pretty Lights all for the first time. It kinda depends if any of my friends want to go, but if anyone sees this, know I'll rock a Roo t-shirt for sure!
Man, after going to this festival and having an amazing time, it really cracks me up to look on PT (I don't post there, I was just looking up CB info on there and kind of became fascinated with those message boards and how stupid people are on there) and see all these whiny hardcore Bisco fans crying about how Camp Bisco isn't just a Biscuits Tent Pole-sucking contest anymore, but actually a solid fest. Four Tet, DFA1979, The DFA tent with Holy Ghost and Special Disco Version, Lotus, and soooo many more incredible sets, and these kids are all just crying because when the Disco Biscuits came on stage, half of the crowd went back to their campsites. Hardcore DB fans are quacking idiots.
