Dirtybird Campout Announces Final 2022 Artist Lineup

Eight years ago, house producer CLAUDE VONSTROKE dreamt of an independent music festival that could cut through the mediocrity of corporate raving and foster a community of weirdos and dance heads looking for something more. The result was Dirtybird Campout – a wild and free playground for fans of all backgrounds, a place where creativity and positivity reign supreme, and a destination where you can come of age, again and again, every summer. Now, with this choose your own destiny ethos at its core, Campout prevails as the best boutique music festival in the world, where both the uninitiated and veterans merge on the dancefloor and games field alike to get down like it’s the last party on earth.

Today, Dirtybird Campout continues to build anticipation for its summer camp for wannabe grownups, announcing the final artist lineup ahead of its eighth edition at the Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds in Central California October 7th – 9th. Newly added names include Claude VonStroke’s BARCLAY CRENSHAW alias, cutting-edge beatmaker and songwriter MR. CARMACK, revered German producer STEVE BUG, Brazilian legend DJ GLEN, epic UK production duo AUDIOJACK, Atlanta via Detroit flag bearer ASH LAURYN, new face of US minimal WYATT MARSHALL, electronic R&B and soul singer-songwriter LIFE ON PLANETS and the captivating sounds of DILLON MARINEZ. LUKE ANDY, ARNOLD & LANE, BABY WEIGHT, CHOOPSIE, E.R.N.E.S.T.O and COUR T. round out the final phase of additions.

These artist additions join an eclectic artist lineup featuring a mix of international legacy acts and emerging stars that span the worlds of house, techno, bass, hip-hop, and beyond. Previously announced artists include GREEN VELVET and CLAUDE VONSTROKE teaming up for their Get Real super-group, Irish house, techno and rave sensation REBŪKE, standout producer and audio engineer LUBELSKI and label favorites such as groove-heavy house duo WALKER & ROYCE, beat-driven party starter ARDALAN and vocal maven NALA. Fashionable twin-sister production duo COCO & BREEZY, fan favorite VNSSA, pioneering house producer KEVIN KNAPP, and original Dirtybird artist and Anabatic Records founder MZ WORTHY.

Dirtybird Campout’s lineup also boasts artists with a particular focus on left of center stylings, seeing everything from bass and dubstep to funk and hip-hop influences. This year is led by the likes of legendary jungle/drum & bass producer GOLDIE, West Coast bass innovator EPROM, boundary pushing Iranian-Dutch singer SEVDALIZA, London selector BEN UFO, respected UK jungle act RONI SIZE and the ultra creative bass wobbler YHETI. Additional names include electropop trailblazer UFFIE, dancefloor favorite JUSTIN JAY, distinguished cross-genre producer NIKKI NAIR, organic bass producer OF THE TREES, celebrated canadian artist and entrepreneur THE LIBRARIAN, up and coming live electronic band BOIZ HOUSE and Bay Area rap legends SOULS OF MISCHIEF.

At Dirtybird Campout, the fun begins upon arrival, where attendees are grouped into Orange, Green, Purple and Red teams to compete all weekend in over 45 events for the now famed Ironbird trophy. Both artists and attendees face-off on the dodgeball court, try not to run in the speed walking challenge, swim for the finish in the .5km Floaty Race, test their strength in Tug O War and so much more, all in a quest for one colour team to take home the glory.
