DIRTYBIRD CAMPOUT: Inside the Birdhouse

This past weekend Dirtybird’s newest event known as Dirtybird Campout, took place at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA. To many fans of the record label, it served as the grand finale of the Dirtybird BBQ tour. To quote the coveted and sold out Dirtybird Campout zip up hoodie, “all your favorite DJs” were there. The talented lineup included the likes of Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Christian Martin, J.Phlip, Kill Frenzy, Justin Jay, Ardalan, Billy Kenny and so many more!

For all the hardcore Dirtybird fans, this was considered as THE ONLY EVENT to be at for the weekend. From sunset to sunrise, from clear skies to muddy waters, the music was bumpin’ and the good vibes were flowin’. On top of a star-studded roster, Dirtybird also added a twist to the event by setting a summer camp theme. The ultimate concept behind Dirtybird Campout was just to have fun and let your inner child come play and dance for the weekend. Campers from all over the United States did just that, arriving to the grounds in such good spirits ready to take on the weekend.

By the time I arrived to the grounds on Friday afternoon, some people had their camps already set up, some were just unloading, and others were still on their way. Upon finding a good camping spot and unloading my gear, my festival neighbors greeted me and offered to help set up the tent. I was definitely grateful and passed it on by offering my help when other neighbors arrived. Even when I was walking through the campsites towards the stage, I saw everyone helping everyone set up. Also, one camp brought a giant bounce house so anyone could come by and bounce for a bit. All of this definitely reflected the tone of the weekend, friendly vibes all around!

The Birdhouse was the main stage and really the only stage, that is until 2am hit. Then the only stage until 7am was the Late Night Lodge, which was known as the after party stage or the disco nap first then after party stage. The Friday lineup started a little after 3pm and by the time Mikey Lion took the stage, the crowd was ready to go. The whole night the DJs connected and vibed with the crowd. Actually, this was the case for the whole weekend. Plus, no one was packed into one area so there was plenty of room to dance. That’s always a good thing. Personal favorite sets of the weekend include Justin Jay, Billy Kenny, Mikey Lion, and Claude VonStroke. One beautiful musical moment of the weekend that must be spotlighted was when campers were literally getting down and dirty to Christian and Justin Martin. While the Martin brothers played drum and bass during sunrise, the rain poured down leaving the festival grounds a muddy dance floor. It was dirty and it was beautiful.

Games and activities also held a major role for the weekend. I mean, that was the whole point of summer camp, right? There was so much to do and so little time. First, you had to register to play and then the counselors assigned you a colored team. From there you could play a game of kickball, dodge ball, mini golf, or be a part of boat relays. You could also wake up from a long night of dancing, go on a nature walk then let your body unwind with some yoga. Or, you could get festival ready by tie-dying your shirt followed by getting your face painted. There was really an activity for every type of person. I mean, from a slip-n-slide to archery, there was always a game or activity you wanted to participate in.

There were also other events such as s’mores, blackout bingo, a talent show, and comedy night. Excluding the s’mores, all of these events took place at a stage called the Bunks. During the comedy show, Kevin Shea had quite a leopard heckler who was throwing tiny balls onto the stage and wanted the microphone. Then Claude VonStroke arose from the middle of the crowd, hugged the man in a leopard onesie, and took him to the side of the stage. Then, during Tome Rhodes’ set, someone came over and threw a baby doll on-stage so he made the doll dance for the crowd. All the comedians were playing off the vibes of the festival and their sets were well received.

By the time Sunday morning came around, mud was everywhere because of the morning showers. Tents, shoes, faces, outfits, doll heads, and so much more were covered in mud. The mud didn’t stop the festival or vibes though, it just added to it in a special way. Everyone just danced harder and it was a perfect way to end the event.

I’ve been to a ton of music festivals and events in my lifetime. Dirtybird Campout has easily become one of my new favorites and definitely my favorite event of the year thus far.
