Yes, you can bring an RV or camper to the campout with the purchase of an additional RV Camping Pass (available as a separate ticket purchase above). There are no size restrictions on RVs, but any vehicle larger than a van needs to purchase an RV Camping Pass. Any vehicles with a trailer also need to purchase an RV Camping Pass.
One RV Pass is good for 1 RV. You do not need to purchase an RV Camping Pass for each person camping in the RV, but everyone (including the driver) does need to have a 3 Day Pass or Backstage Party Pass to come in with the RV.
Can I camp with my car?
Yes, you can camp with your car if you purchase an additional Car Camping Pass. See ticketing page for details.
Where can I take a shower?
We will have showers in the main campground plaza available for $7.
Where can I brush my teeth??
You can brush your teeth anywhere you want. But we recommend doing it in your campsite and rinsing with a cup of water. You should brush at least twice a day and spit in a bucket, not on the ground!
Can I bring my own stove?
Due to the CA state drought / high fire risk all open flame and charcoal grills are not allowed at Dirtybird Campout. Small enclosed propane stoves are ok, the BBQ’s will take place on Saturday and Sunday, and there will also be several delicious food vendors. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding!
How can I live the high life because I’m not a great camper?
The Dirtybird Campout will offer pre-setup Kodiak camping packages for those who want to come enjoy the campout experience but don’t have the time or energy to shop for, pack up and bring all of their own camping gear. Let us handle all the dirty work and just sit back and enjoy your stay! Camping Package info can be found here.

I want to get the right supplies for the weekend. What do you recommend bringing?
Depending on how you roll, camping can be simple and basic or it can be a timeless luxury experience. We recommend the following basics: tent, shade for tent, sleeping bags and blankets, camp chairs, lanterns, folding tables, trash bags, snacks and drinks, sun block, bug spray, lip balm, good walking shoes, fun lights for camp at night time, flags and other identifiable objects so you can find your camp, and anything else fun you can think of. Please see our complete list of what to bring and what not to bring HERE!
What will I be able to purchase on site?
There will be plenty of food vendors onsite to feed you throughout the weekend. We’ll also have several bars serving beer and wine. There will also be a small general store in case you forget some basics like toothpaste or a tooth brush.
What can/can’t I bring to the event?
You cannot bring weapons, sound systems, charcoal stoves, kegs or large quantities of alcohol into the event. These will be strictly enforced.
You can bring blankets, toys and games to play with, lots of friends and good attitudes. Get ready to have some fun!
I left a jar of mayo in the sun all day then made a sandwich. Do you have a Medical Tent?
Yes, we will have a medic tent in the main campground plaza. If you have any issues or see someone with an issue please don’t hesitate to call on our medic staff for support. They are here to help you and happy to do it.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
There will be an info booth next to the medic tent in the main campground plaza. They will be able to help you with general questions and if you need to contact production they can do that as well. For questions before you arrive onsite please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll assist you via the interwebs.
Is my ticket transferable?
There are no refunds on tickets, but you can transfer them if you are unable to attend. Please contact Eventbrite support for details on how to do this.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes, you will need to bring your printed ticket to the box office at the entrance to receive your festival wristband. No one will be allowed entry without a proper festival wristband on.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?
If the name on the ticket does not match the name of the attendee that is ok. Be careful to make sure that you don’t lose your ticket or have it stolen from you because if it is used before you arrive you will have to purchase another one.
What is the refund policy?
All sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges.
What if it rains?
The Dirtybird Campout is a rain or shine event, no refunds. The music, games and fun will go on! If the weather reports predict rain or if you want to be extra cautious we recommend coming prepared with extra shoes, trash bags, raincoats, tarps, and extra stakes to secure your tent.
Will there be work-exchange opportunities at this year’s Campout?

Where do we throw away our trash at the end of the event?
Dirtybird Campout is a pack it in, pack it out festival. That means you DO NOT leave your trash behind when you leave, but you take it ALL with you! We recommend bringing lots of trash bags and leaving extra room in your vehicle to haul your trash away when you leave. Let’s keep it beautiful, Campers!
Will there be a BBQ?
Yes! And we are doing the most to ensure that it’s better than ever!
What’s a Backstage Party Pass?
