The spirits were high and alive at the 2021 Dirtybird Road to Campout.
The happy campers descended upon Los Angeles' Expo Park on August 8th, the previous home of the 2019 Dirtybird BBQ, to shake some tail feathers and get down to house music. After a year of no contact, it was clear this day festival was much needed. Label head Claude VonStroke heard the flocks' prayers and answered.
The grassy oasis in the middle of Downtown LA was transformed in classic Dirtybird form with camp games, activities, delicious Grill$on BBQ, and of course live music. KINK, the analog maven, made a glorious appearance, traveling all the way from Bulgaria, to captivate fans with a one-of-a-kind performance.
Two new additions to the family, Nala and DJ E-Clyps, threw down sets that got the crowds jumping. As if the day couldn't get better, the crowd was treated to special guest performances by Get Real, Claude VonStroke, and Green Velvet's new duo.
