LCD Soundsystem, Ween, Thievery Corporation, Girl Talk, Bassnectar and Pretty Lights are among the acts scheduled to join the Disco Biscuits at Camp Bisco 9. The annual three-day music and arts festival will return to Mariaville, NY’s July 15-17, 2010.

More artists and festival details will be announced in the coming weeks. In total, the three-day event will feature over 50 bands.
LCD Soundsystem’s appearance at the festival is a longtime in the making: DFA artist The Juan MacLean first played the festival in 2005, DFA label head James Murphy and his LCD drummer Pat Mahoney spun two Special Disco Version sets at the festival last year and this year LCD Soundsystem proper will appear at the event.
Camp Bisco has also tweaked its setup this year. The expanded setup will include: a second stage in the main field, an improved location for the DJ and late night dance tent—complete with a surround sound system, a local artists performance space and performance art stage.
