Any bottle or empty container may be filled up at these locations. Stay hydrated, make sure your friends do too and have a great time!

Each summer we bring the best party to the majestic Indian Lookout County Club in the rolling hills of upstate New York. This year we're making a commitment, along with our attendees, to keep our festival grounds beautiful through recycling and waste reduction programs.

No secret here, the attendees will make the program a success. Please pay attention where recycling, compost and waste are placed.

Please be sure to pick up all trash at or around your campsite and bag it up at the end of the weekend. Please respect our temporary home!!

We are excited to have Clean Vibes, the trash and recycling experts, join the Camp Bisco team this year to help us make Camp Bisco XI the cleanest and greenest one yet.

Clean Vibes needs your help! We all need to work together to keep the campground and the concert areas clean throughout the weekend. Please keep your camping area clean: Recycle and pick up your trash.

Let's all help to minimize the waste footprint of Camp Bisco by diverting all recyclables from the landfill.  Every vehicle received two bags - the clear one is for trash and the blue one is for recycling. Any aluminum, #1 and #2 plastic beverage containers and cardboard can be recycled in the blue bag. We will have extra bags at the campground headquarters.

After the show ends each night, be sure to grab a bag and lend a hand to cleanup the concert field. If we all work together we can be sure that the field is clean and ready for another day of dancing!

When the music stops at the end of the weekend, be sure to take some time to clean up your campsite.  Bag up all of your recycling and trash in separate bags.  Do a quick sweep of the ground to pick up any cigarette butts and bottle caps from the grass.  Finally, tie off your full bags of waste and bring them to the edge of any road in the campground for curbside pickup.

Please help Clean Vibes cultivate cleanliness and ensure that we as a community reduce the size of the ecological footprint we leave behind at the ILCC.  Let's take the phrase "leave only footprints" one step further to make sure the footprints we leave are as small as possible.

Clean Vibes is still looking for volunteers to help with the recycling and clean up effort. Positions are available for during show and post show cleanup. All volunteers receive free admission to the event (a refundable deposit is required) For more info and to sign up, click here or email

Color Wars

As many of you know, but more importantly, for those that don't, COLOR WAR 8 is upon us! Every year on the Friday of Camp Bisco, warriors of Green, Purple, Yellow and Orange descend on the main stage field to compete in battles of skill, strength, and smarts…and this year is no exception! Of course, old favorites such as dodge-ball, tug of war, biscuits trivia, and the campground marathon will return, as well as some new surprises!

More Info to come soon!


Most importantly, have fun, be nice to others, have a little patience, drink enough water and give the gift of laughter to the people around you during Camp Bisco. Watch out for your neighbors, make friends, and have an awesome time.
