Dirtybird Campout Was Beyond The Books!
Dirtybird Campout 2019! Saying this festival was one for the books would be considered an understatement. Claude VonStroke and the rest of the Dirtybird crew did not disappoint house music fans in this big lake party. Claude and his crew held campout games, outdoor activities, spiritual awakenings, and lakeside fun with it's well put together campout. From night one of sipping a beer with our camp out crew to campfire songs, Dirtybird campout made our top in must have experiences! iEDM has the pleasure of taking a trip down memory lane back to summer camp and these were our favorite bits of this unforgettable weekend.
1. The Birdhouse
The mother nest of all of new and native Dirybird fans! Dirtybird campout's MainStag was home to the best acts of the weekend. We got to groove to the sound of those funky baselines and Roland beats. The birdhouse was nothing less than fascinating, full of Dirtybird artists huddling together in preparation to perform their extravagant sets for their fans! We witness top Dirtybird artist go off all weekend including Shiba San, Walker & Royce, VNSSA, Will Clarke, Justin Martin, Redlight, Paul Woolford, Kill Frenzy, Sacha Robotti, Claude VonStroke, and many more! The Birdhouse was chirping all weekend long.
2. Games & Activites with Dirtybird Artists
Memories beyond the music took place before the Property at Dirtybird Camp! We got to become one with the campout experience by being involved with activities at summer camp. From jogging with Justin Martin, playing kickball with Sage Armstrong, bikeracing with Daren Delgado, 5K float racing with VNSSA, and so much more, there was something for everyone at Dirtybird camp out. iEDM got the full experience to rewind back to summer camp with our favorite house acts. WHAT A DREAM!
3. Silent Disco After hours
Party after the party! If you could hang all day and all night, Dirtybird campout knew how to party with someone like you. Silent Disco at the Basslodge was the best way to get your party hard fix. B2Bs went on all night with three channels to choose from the sounds of tech house, experimental, and drum n bass, Dirtybird knows it's guests so well to fix your party thirst. We partied from sunset to sunrise with our friends The Martin Brothers, Pete Grahm, Sammy Legs, Teknicoz, Boiz House, Lenny Kiser, and additional surprise B2B sets! Boy that was a trip!
4. New Dirtybird Family
Although some of the best acts of house music is what brought us so much excitement, meeting all of you new dirty birdies made this event unforgettable! You guys got down to the incredible tech house sounds, cared for one another like family, and bonded together over the weekend with these amazing activities. You all know how to spread wonderful vibes! Love you Dirytbird family!
5. Modesto River
The Modesto Reservoir was an iconic lake of the weekend. We swam, laughed, and canoed with new companions into what seemed to be a magical lake. The lake was perfect for us to cool off from the heat of the moment of those amazing sets! We will be back for Dirtybird 2020!
