DIRTYBIRD Unveils 15th Birthday EventsLabel | 28.01.2020
Electronic music trends are constantly changing, but DIRTYBIRD has remained anchored as one of the most beloved and influential forces in the scene for over a decade and a half. Over 15 years, the brand has evolved from its humble beginnings as a small free party in Golden Gate Park to a revered institution whose fun-loving ethos has captivated dance lovers all over the world. Crossing its 2020 milestone, DIRTYBIRD shows no signs of slowing down, in fact quite the opposite, debuting two brand new festivals as it unveils its 15th birthday events calendar.
DIRTYBIRD will launch new festivals on both sides of the country in 2020, starting with the second installment of Claude VonStroke’s Birdhouse festival, which touches down in LA in May, after two years of ruling the roost in Chicago. Expect to see VonStroke explore the fringes of house and techno, and showcase some of his favorite pioneers and OGs from the scene in a two-day open-air old school street fair-themed throwdown in Downtown Los Angeles’ Exposition Park. Expect cotton candy, corn dogs, fair games and local dance troupes, handpicked by the DIRTYBIRD boss man.
DIRTYBIRD migrates East for its new Florida festival in September, touching down for Labor Day, and creating a truly unique DIRTYBIRD experience. Taking over an entire resort, CampINN will be the ultimate DIRTYBIRD weekender, with fans able to take advantage of resort amenities and party poolside and late-night with their favorite DIRTYBIRD artists, with hotel rooms located steps from the dancefloor.
2020 will also be stacked full of returning favorites, with the DIRTYBIRD Players taking over Club Space in Miami for their annual 18+ hour session. The Miami showcase will also serve as a chance for the WMC community to catch cuts from VonStroke’s much-anticipated Freaks & Beaks LP first-hand.
Fittingly, BBQs, where it all began for DIRTYBIRD, will also return bigger and better than ever in 2020, with five Birthday celebration dates in the Bay Area, Atlanta, Denver, Brooklyn and Seattle (the city vote winner this year). Expect more delectable meats and beats and outdoor dancing from the DIRTYBIRD collective, as well as epic new surprises on this beloved party tradition.
Finally, get your camping checklist ready for Fall; on October 1, Dirtybird Campout returns to the West Coast, a fitting finale for the brand’s packed year of birthday commemoration. No doubt Claude and his fellow Camp Counselors will have something special up their sleeves for the weekend.
Fifteen years and still going strong. Start your year of the DIRTYBIRD right, with Claude VonStroke’s new album Freaks & Beaks out February 21, 2020, and re-live fifteen years of magical memories with the new Jeremy Fish designed coffee table book, DIRTYBIRD, also out in February.
