After one of the most fun weekends of my life, I sure feel like a kid again. Dirtybird Campout resurrects the sense of Play from childhood summers more purely than any other fest I’ve attended, thanks to Claude VonStroke‘s vision of an intimate music festival/summer-camp-for-adults hybrid. Countless games and activities, ranging from classic favorites like dodgeball, relay races and canoeing, to wacky versions of speed dating, scavenger hunts, dance-offs, a ridiculous bingo revival and so much more, supplement a stellar lineup of music in a thrillingly communal way. The DJs even participate themselves as camp counselors, and Claude shows up to virtually every scheduled event, creating a feeling of family amongst all the dirty birdies.
And boy, do these campers know how to party! Check out our gallery to see the crazy outfits, wild events and all sorts of other shenanigans on display. Dirtybird Campout is in a class of its own.
