DIRTYBIRD Flies South for the Winter

November 2, 2017 -

Daily Beat Staff

For three years, Counselor Claude VonStroke has treated birds of every feather to a wild California weekend full of the quirks and surprises that DIRTYBIRD is known for. 2018 sees him teaming up again with the incredible Do LaB and migrating to Southern lands, turning the Campout into a tropical rager stacked full of underground jams and eclectic riddims from all your favorite DJ's in the world.
DIRTYBIRD will land in St. Cloud Florida bringing with them all of Campout’s signature games, counselors, activities and booty shaking tunes, but with a regional flavor.  Campout East will be a twisted mardi-gras, voodoo campout, full of the South’s signature quirks, charm and character. With the help of DIRTYBIRD’s Head Counselors, a carefully selected crew of electronic’s finest, and the Dirtiest Super Bowl viewing party you’ve ever seen - we will never be the same again.

Leading the eastward flock in 2018 will be international club icon Tiga, Life and Death label boss DJ Tennis, UK house sensation George Fitzgerald, Keinmusik’s showcase with &Me, Adam Port and Rampa plus legendary house beats from Marshall Jefferson, MK, Claptone, DJ Glen and a Crew Love shakedown with Soul Clap, Wolf+Lamb and PillowTalk. Man of the moment Fisher returns to Campout and This Ain’t Bristol will throw down with Billy Kenny, Maximono and Bot.

Far more than just house, Roni Size and LTJ Bukem will serve up a rightful lesson in Drum and Bass while beatsmiths Salva, Craze, Just Blaze and Ryan Hemsworth will fuse electronic music and hip-hop. Further genre blending will come from Hessle Audio’s frontrunner Pearson Sound, the versatile bass of Madam X, futuristic tones of Stööki Sound, supreme darkness from EPROM and everything in between from Mija.

Throw all that into the mixer with the DIRTYBIRD family, including Claude VonStroke, J.Phlip, Christian Martin, and Ardalan and you’ve got a perfect debut of the East Coast’s newest bestest festival. (And that’s just phase one!)

While this may be its biggest musical offering to date, Campout is arguably defined by its off dancefloor programming. East Coast Campers will be treated to a plethora of nostalgic fun. With more than sixty activities they may find themselves shooting a bullseye at archery, straining sinews during Tug-O-War, Kick Ball or a Sack Race, munching on S'mores, taking center stage during the Campout Talent show, Camper Comedy, Beat Boxing Competition or late night Karaoke, all while competing for the famed Ironbird Trophy.

The East Coast location is a lush green, tropical paradise, with nine distinct ecosystems, meadows for dancefloors, all surrounded by Florida waters. The location is an actual working Summer Camp, an easy drive from either Miami or Orlando.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here. Get ready to go back to camp this February!
