Dirtybird Campout: A Festival Dream

Founded by Claude Vonstroke in the mid 2000’s, Dirtybird Records had humble beginnings throwing intimate parties in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Flash forward to 2015, now the label hosts an annual Dirtybird BBQ with label mates Justin Martin, Christian Martin, J. Phlip and many special guests. With the success of the Dirtybird BBQ the label has decided to host it’s first music festival: Dirty Bird Campout.

Emulating their carefree and easy-going nature, Campout promises to be more intimate than your average music festival. The Dirtybird crew is well-known for connecting with fans on a level that eliminates the barriers of celebrity or ego. It is common to see the Dirtybird crew dancing with fans and cheering on their fellow label mates. Instead of acting like celebrities, Dirtybird shows that they are just like anyone else with a passion for the music.

Unlike many music festivals with lots of sparkle, massive crowds, and tickets almost as expensive as your month’s rent, Dirtybird Campout is very reasonably priced and hopes to bring out the inner child in all of us. A three-day ticket is $145 plus fees, while a car camping pass for the weekend is $70. The Campout takes place halfway between LA and San Diego in Silverado, CA, and they offer shuttle buses from San Francisco, LA and San Diego.

Instead of focusing on out-of-this-world production and top 40 DJ’s, Campout promises amazing Dirtybird music while also including a comedy stage, a talent show, late night movies, capture the flag, scavenger hunts, tug-of-war, s’mores and much more. The Campout is 21+ and will host several beer gardens. It takes place October 2, 3 and 4.

With music festivals popping up all over the US, Campout provides a fresh take on what festivals can, should, or could be. For Northwesterners who can’t afford the plane ticket to California, Beatport is hosting round trip tickets and guest list access to one lucky winner.
