The dust has now settled as this year’s Camp Bisco has come and gone, and attendees are now faced with the task of adjusting back to into their day-to-day routines. A couple days later, and I’m left with Atmosphere still stuck in my head and a pile of laundry.

Day three of the festival was under the blisteringly hot sun, and what I felt was the hottest day of the weekend. It was hot enough to almost miss the rain and storms from Bisco’s past (but not quite).

I was anxious waiting at the shuttle stop, knowing that Atmosphere was slated to begin in mere moments. I was surrounded by festival goers talking about how they’ve never been to Camp Bisco before when I realized that on Saturday, the festival had day-passes available. As a result, the grounds saw an increase in volume and in security alike. (Sporting a bag that had only the line-up guide, my iPhone and ear plugs, I got to make the “I’m your easiest search of the day” comment over three times; security was not messing around on the last day of the fest).

Hit the jump for the rest of Day 3 recap and photos.

KC’s Music Monday: Camp Bisco XI Preview

Arguably my favorite part about attending a music festival is the undeniable factor that the nature of the beast is designed to enable a unique experience for every person in attendance. You can map out which performers you’d like to see or ditch any intention of a plan and see whatever comes your way. Or a little bit of both. Some people attend solely for the ‘experience’ and don’t place much emphasize on checking out the music itself (don’t be one of those people) but again, to each their own. Much like life itself, Camp Bisco is what you make of it.

Last year, Andrew and I attended, had an absolute blast and followed our own compasses. Not to preach too much on a how-to-attend-a-festival-guide level or anything, but I seriously do recommend making the experience your own. If you want to see a band or DJ, go see them, regardless of if your friends want to go with you or not. If you want to call it a night to rest for the next day, do so. You don’t have to get carried away to have a good time. There will be plenty going on at all times, so don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything if you chose stage A over stage B.

For today’s post, I picked out some artists from this year’s line-up that I’m looking forward to. Feel free to post in the comments who you’re excited for and let us know if you’re attending this year. More to come next week.

Be sure to check out our coverage from last year (day one, two, three) and stay up on Camp Bisco for upcoming announcements and other details as the festival dates creep closer.

Hit the jump!
