With summer drawing to an end, we’ve put together the top 5 reasons to attend Dirtybird Campout West Coast and keep those summer vibes going well into fall.

5. Killer Lineup

The killer lineup composed of artists from the world over; including a one-of-a-kind retro hip-hop set by turntablist extraordinaire A-Trak, Green Velvet, Gorgon City, Kill Frenzy, Worthy, Shiba San, Ardalan, Jubilee, FISHER and even a hip-hop showdown by Big Daddy Kane & Slick Rick the Ruler! The weekend is set to kick off with an early arrival party by Hot Creation’s Patrick Topping and will lead the party into two stages of weekend-long music magic.

4. New Location

A new location at Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds in Central California promises campers the ultimate camping experience, combined with the thrills of Dirtybird and all its feathers of course. Going for a quick dip while shaking booty will not be a problem here with how close the stages are to A LAKE. That’s right, accessible water! Some campers will have the opportunity for beachfront camping and the grounds have RV hookups, benches and other camping amenities for convenient setup/strike.

3.  The DBC Experience, of course, “You don’t attend Campout, you make Campout”

The experience, because as they say at Dirtybird, “You don’t attend Campout, you make Campout.” We can truly say this is one of the most unique festival experiences in the world. It is an unbelievable weekend that encourages campers to be their truest, weirdest, most fun selves while loving and laughing with all their campmates. Instead of hanging out backstage all weekend performers want to be in the action too, which is why you might run into Claude in the crowd boogying, or Justin Martin judging the Talent Show.

2. Games & Activities + Iron Bird Championship

The games/activities that will make you feel like a kid again… or highly competitive because you might have had too many beers for breakfast and decided dodgeball would be a good idea. Either way, campers have a plethora to choose from, including costumed boat races, sack races, kickball, tie-dying, archery and the list goes on.  Last year’s Campout West delivered more than 50 activities– and that’s just off the dancefloor. With inhibitions left at the gates and sights set on winning the Iron Bird Championship, Campers spent their days getting pegged with dodgeballs by Christian Martin, catching comedy with Counselor Claude, chowing down on cheesy pies with Justin Martin, sinking cornholes with Ardalan and, of course, tearing up the dance floor to the strains of electronic music’s finest.

1. Let’s get weird “Over the last four campouts, we have met really amazing, weird, crazy people that are characters that campout” ~ Counselor Claude

Plain and simple, it’s Dirtybird! The label has been generating happiness through music and experiences for thousands of fans across the globe since 2003. Claude Vonstroke and his fellow counselors work diligently throughout the year to ensure each DBC is an unforgettable, community bonding experience for all.
