The 10th-annual Camp Bisco concluded Saturday and late into yesterday morning, and I can only imagine what the camp grounds look like right now, as the mini communities of attendees, campers, venders and staff alike clear the grounds almost as quickly as they arrived. On-site Saturday felt like a refreshed Bisco, with new life breathed in from those who opted for the Day-only pass and it was almost as if the first two days were now a distant memory. The fresh slate from Saturday also could be due to the absolutely fucking perfect summer weather; nothing but blue skies, temperatures in the high 80s, bright sunshine that dried up the mud from the previous night and then completely cooling off as night fell.

Andrew and I arrived on site just in time to catch the start of Dillon Francis‘ set in the Mad Decent tropical tent featuring the latest in moombahton. The genre is the latest direction that electronic music has been taking, and it’s essentially considered to be a cross-pollination of dance genres (house, techno, dubstep) and tropical bass (reggaeton, dutch house) slowed down to mid-tempo 108bpm range. Anyhow, for Bisco, Mad Decent brought newer talents to the line-up, featuring Jillionaire, Munchi, Nadastrom and Dillon Francis. However, Munchi had problems with his visa and didn’t make it over to the states in time to play the festival. Dillon Francis covered his set, and from what Andrew and I heard, it was spectacular.
