Dirtybird Moves Annual West Coast Campout to Modesto Reservoir, Unveils 2018 Lineup

San Francisco-based electronic label Dirtybird announced a new venue for the West Coast edition of the annual Campout, along with the full 2018 artist lineup. The two-day music and camping event will be going lakeside this fall at the Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds, headlined by the core Dirtybird crew of Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, J.Phlip, Christian Martin, Worthy, and Ardalan all doubling as Camp Counselors.

Attendees (dubbed campers) will enjoy a wide range of music across two stages – from house and techno to hip-hop and bass. Additional artists performing live this year include Frankfurt techno icon Roman Flügel, Chicago house boss Green Velvet, electronic duo Gorgon City, Grammy award-winning producer Mark Ronson, among many others.

Beyond the music, campers can also participate in numerous activities such as daytime dips in the lake, sack races, dodgeball, cornhole, kickball, arts and crafts, and archery. There are even less-conventional contests like costumed boat races and the “lapdance for your life” competitions. Upon arrival, campers can be assigned a Color Team and earn point all weekend long by participating in the activities.

Tickets to the event are on sale now and additional special guest performers are still expected to be announced in the future. Last year, Dirtybird Campout took place at the Lake San Antonio Recreation Area in Bradley, California (the same home as Lightning In A Bottle).
