    Dirtybird Campout - West

    Dirtybird Campout is basically a summer camp for adults. This is one of the most unique festival experiences in the world where you can take a 3-day vacation from your daily grind. At Dirtybird Campout, you can fill your days with games, sports, art, and good vibes.

    The Dirtybird experience is a combination of a transformational music festival and the classic American summer camp experience. At this festival you’ll see some of the biggest names in house, techno, bass, and hip-hop.

    Like many camping festivals, it can get chilly at night so its best to prepare to layer up in the evening. At transformational festivals like these, you can’t go wrong with tie-dye, geometric patterns, and wild costumes that’ll stand out in the crowd!
