San Francisco house music label Dirtybird is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this year. What started as an informal gathering in Golden Gate Park, organized by Claude Von Stroke and the Martin brothers, has grown into an internationally renowned label, spurring an undeniable tech house renaissance. Steadily accumulating a solid crew of talented producers, Dirtybird has become a beloved institution of San Francisco whose fame and following have skyrocketed in recent years. Culminating a decade of momentum, the label is throwing its first ever full-fledged music festival, the Dirtybird Campout.
Hosted in Southern California at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA, the festival will take place the first weekend in October (3, 4 & 5) and promises three days of camp-themed fun. The lineup touts all of the big Dirtybird players including Claude Von Stroke, Justin Martin, J.Phlip, Worthy, Justin Jay and Ardalan, as well as some surprises from outside the family, including Lunice, Nosaj Thing, Route 94 and Lee Foss. With some help from the Do Lab, who recently threw “Woogie Weekend” at this same location, plus the allure of sprawling nature and sunny skies, thousands of Bay Area fans are expected for this inaugural event.
The Dirtybird artists have never been shy about interacting with their fans, and this weekend they will lead many of the camp activities so it’s the perfect chance to meet the roster. The festival aims to evoke the nostalgia of summer camp with games like tug-of-war and capture the flag, arts and crafts stations, scavenger hunts, talent shows, and other classic pastimes. Pack your sleeping bags and tents and get ready to bring out your inner child to the beat of bass-heavy house.
