Anybody with any knowledge of the Dirtybird crew has probably realized that they’re a bunch of awesome weirdos. We love festivals because of how free and playful they make us feel, and Claude VonStroke’s Dirtybird Campout in Silverado, CA is no exception. In fact, it just may be the most playful festival of all.
A killer lineup was announced over a month ago and, naturally, was met with praise and excitement from fans far and wide. To keep the good news coming, the festival also announced both a comedy lineup and a games + activities lineup that may or may not have had just jumping up and down. Funny men and women taking the stage on Comedy Night include SHOWTIME and ABC’s golden-boy Andrew Santino, stand-up king and cable-credited actor Dustin Ybarra, and Second City protegé and first-lady of the new Chicago underground Marlena Rodríguez. Check out the full comedy lineup here!
Competitive campers can sign up with Games HQ on site at the festival to be assigned to teams made up of campers, staff, and artists alike to try their luck in the Color Team Tournament. Karaoke, moonlight capture the flag, and wood carving are just a few of many activities that round out the festival’s summer camp vibe. Go here for a full list of fun and games.
In an early promo video for the festival, it’s fearless founder states: “At three in the morning, I just wanna find myself in a very weird place doing something totally ridiculous.” Let’s all follow in Mr. VonStrokes footsteps, shall we?
