Thursday’s Early-Arrival Pajama Party welcomes Day Zero and Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus, a special guest who helped break Claude VonStroke at the start of his career and most recently remixed the Get Real super hit “Jolean.” (Claude will even do the warm up set on this special night.)
The house focused Birdhouse stage sees Claude joined by the hard-hitting sounds of German giant Boys Noize, Turbo Records dance legend Tiga, Polish house producers Catz 'n Dogz, and label favorites Walker & Royce, Ardalan, Worthy and Sacha Robotti. The next generation of Dirtybird will also be on full display, with standout sets from VNSSA, Nala, Steve Darko, and Lubelski. True house OGs will be taking over camp as well including DJ Heather, Worthy, DJ Minx, Gene Farris, Hector Romero and more.
The Bass Lodge will bring its left of center flavor to the party with two legendary mix masters DJ Jazzy Jeff and Kid Koala. Next gen hyper-pop maverick, Brakence makes his festival debut along with the smooth bass vibes of Medasin. The stage will also showcase the direction of Dirtybird’s new whitelabel series featuring Hugo Massien, Justin Jay, Nikki Nair and Danny Goliger. Detroit legend and headliner Carl Craig celebrates 30 years of Planet-E Recordings, alongside live performances from the illustrious Jacques Greene and Rodriguez Jr. While low-end music lovers can strap in for late night sessions from fringe UK bass leaders Ivy Lab, DnB supergroup Planet of the Drums, the eclectic Barclay Crenshaw and wacky super producer Yheti. Don’t forget the classic hip hop hitmaker Sir Mix-a-Lot and one of Claude’s all time favorite New York hip-hop trios, Digable Planets.
With the onset of the streaming revolution in lock down came Dirtybird TV, a Twitch network streaming five days a week that introduced a new cast of characters making their breakthrough with the return of shows. These artists put in the time to keep the party alive when there was no party. Fans will be seeing some of these internet-famous allstars for the first time at Campout, like ‘TV Party’’s Nala, ‘Psychic Bassline’’s Victoria Rawlins, “Off The Clock”s Subset and other channel regulars like Wyatt Marshall, Codes, and Kevin Knapp. It's a phenomenon that rings true to the ethos Dirtybird has always stuck to - find talent that is pushing the envelope and welcome them into their fun loving community. Its a post-pandemic URL meets IRL alternative reality, lets live it.
