Head Counselor Claude VonStroke unveiled the roster of musical talent coming to dazzle campers during this summer's Dirtybird Campout, in addition to announcing the festival's move to a new location since its split with Do LaB.
Split between two stages, music will range from house to techno, hip-hop to bass, DJs and live acts. VonStroke's cohorts this year include Frankfurt Techno icon Roman Flügel, a special early arrival party with Hot Creations wunderkind Patrick Topping, the inimitable Chicago house boss Green Velvet, the electronic mastery of Gorgon City, Grammy award-winning super-producer Mark Ronson, scene-leading producer Chris Lake, and hip-hop’s secret weapon Salva.
The bill continues with Dirtybird favorites like the unstoppable FISHER, the Self Help anthems of Walker & Royce, festival stars Mikey Lion and PETS’ own Catz n Dogz, and global house frontrunner Kevin Knapp. The deep and dark sounds of the Bass Lodge continue this year with blowout performances from beatsmith EPROM, alien abductee Barclay Crenshaw, DnB kings Dub Phizix & Strategy, Bristol badman DJ Krust, East Coast bass selector Jubilee, and a classic hip-hop showdown between Big Daddy Kane & Slick Rick the Ruler.
Campers will enjoy a run of showcases including a live house music rager from Justin Jay’s Fantastic Voyage, the globally revered LA Sunday shakedown The Do-Over, NYC low-end label Worst Behavior and Christian Martin’s Trippy Ass Technologies.
And of course the DIRTYBIRD flock will be in full force with special sets from Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, J.Phlip, Christian Martin, Worthy, and Ardalan, plus a Martin Brothers Jungle Set for the ages.
As for the new locale, Dirtybird Campout West will land at Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds in Central California, offering a lush lakeside camping experience. Just miles away from the vast Yosemite National Park, Campers will be treated to a beautiful lake ripe for swimming and fishing, beachfront camping and stages so close to the water you can booty shake while you take a dip, grassy areas for your favorite summer camp-style games, plus a slew of nature-focused activities for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle for the weekend.
Dirtybird Campout West takes place October 5-7, 2018. Tickets are on sale now.
