Everyone's favorite party-'til-dawn summer camp is back and ready to make you move. Dirtybird Campout unveiled a fresh lineup to match its fresh venue for what's shaping up to be an awesome 2017 for the fun-loving crew and its fans.
This October 6-8, attendees will gather at the San Antonio Campground in Bradley, California, (yep, the same place Lightning in a Bottle is held!) ready to dance until the sun rises and relive the days of yore when summers were all about carefree outdoor adventures, being in a swimsuit as often as possible, and warm nights with friends.
Luckily, the Dirtybird crew has put together its largest lineup ever to make it all happen, thanks to extended hours on Campout’s new second stage which allowed the Don of Dirtybird, Claude VonStroke , to fashion the festival’s largest lineup yet, featuring the very best in contemporary house and techno, hip-hop and off-kilter beatmakers, alongside all of the faves from the Dirtybird label family.
Joining the flock in 2017 will be Motor City techno icon Matthew Dear, the envelope pushing electronica of Danny Daze, a showcase from LA’s Soulection crew, a raucous tech-house session from the party starting Desert Hearts, plus a standout set from iconic electro hip-hop star Egyptian Lover. Drum n' bass will be repped hard with DJ Marky, Manchester’s Madam X will bring her grime stylings, with the UK also repped by Benji B. Live trap from araabMuzik, deeper shades of house from Jesse Rose, Lauren Lane, Cut Snake and Amtrac and Detroit’s Mike Servito are just a few of the other highlights. Add to this the core of Dirtybird, including Justin Martin, Walker & Royce, Christian Martin, Kill Frenzy, J.Phlip, Sacha Robotti, Shiba San, Eats Everything, Will Clarke, Worthy, Ardalan, and you have one hell of a Campout.
Although it might be tempting to never stop dancing, Campout’s summer camp-esque activities are a huge reason this festival stands out. From archery with J.Phlip, to volleyball with Ardalan, sack racing with Christian Martin, arts and crafts with Worthy, dodgeball with Kill Frenzy, Justin Martin’s Wheel of Pizza Party, to catching VonStroke cracking up at the late night comedy stage, it’s essential to join a color team for the weekend and jump headfirst into the camp spirit. That Iron Bird Championship won’t win itself.
Dirtybird Campout takes place October 6-8, 2017, at the San Antonio Campground in Bradley, California. Grab tickets here.
