Bring Water: Come prepared with your own water! About 1.5 gallons per day, per person is a good rule of thumb to follow. Also be sure to bring any water you need for cooking or washing! Please do not bring single-use plastic water bottles!
Vehicles at Campout: Every vehicle coming to Dirtybird Campout (except bicycles and motorcycles) must purchase a Vehicle Pass to enter the festival.
Vehicle Pass = Car Camping – Vehicle passes will allow you camp with your vehicle inside the campgrounds.
No Parking – There is no parking available onsite or around the venue.
More RV Camping– Our new venue now offers RV campsites with electric and water hookups! RV Passes ALWAYS sell out FIRST – Don’t delay!
2 Types of RV Passes – Our RV Passes are broken down into two different categories this year – Short and long!
RV Camping Pass with Hookups – Short (less than 27′)
RV Camping Pass with Hookups – Long (more than 27′)
Still 21+ – Sorry kids, no one under 21 is allowed to attend Dirtybird Campout.
Why is Dirtybird Campout moving venues? What happened to the old venue?
Due to new zoning laws and restrictions, the Oak Canyon Park venue can no longer allow us to produce Dirtybird Campout as we’ve come to know and love it. Sound ordinance restrictions and reduced campground space were a few of the main variables involved in the decision, but there were multiple reasons we decided to make the move.
The San Antonio Campground will allow us the space and setting to continue making Dirtybird Campout one of the most unique festival experiences out there for years to come!
Where is the new venue located?
Our new home to Dirtybird Campout is a genuine campground and a picturesque paradise nestled in the hills of Bradley, California.
Lake San Antonio – SOUTH SHORE
74255 San Antonio Road

Will there still be payment plans?
Easy monthly payment plans will be available with any Dirtybird Campout ticket purchase, not just your Weekend Festival Pass! Just select “Affirm” in the payment method drop down menu (instead of a credit/debit card) during checkout.

Can I camp with my car?
Yes! In fact, everyone that brings a vehicle to Dirtybird Campout will be able to camp next to their vehicle. There will be no additional parking lots in or around the venue.

Will there still be Kodiak camping?
Yes! Kodiak camping options will still be available. Dirtybird Campout will offer pre-set up Camp Kodiak packages for those who want to come enjoy the Campout experience but don’t have the time, energy or suitcase space 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. Camp Kodiak Package info can be found in the ticket descriptions.
I’m coming from out of town. What airport do I fly to?
The 3 closest major airports are San Jose (SJC, 147mi), San Francisco (SFO, 179mi) and Los Angeles (LAX, 240mi). San Luis Obispo (SBP, 64mi) is technically the closest airport, however it has less frequent routes which usually means higher costs involved, so please keep that in mind when planning your travels.
You can hitch a ride to Dirtybird Campout on the Camp Bus from San Francisco and Los Angeles airports. Tickets will be available to purchase during the General Onsale.
What are my transportation options getting to the event if I don’t have a car?
There are Camp Bus tickets available for purchase offering round-trip transportation from LAX or SFO to the event. Exact times and locations for the Camp Buses will be released with general onsale information,
If I am interested in contributing through Work Exchange, do I need to buy a festival pass now?
You do not need to purchase your pass now if you plan to do Work Exchange, however be aware that Dirtybird Campout will most likely sell out this year. If you want to secure your spot on the games field, it’s always best to lock in your pass and if you’re accepted into our C.I.T. Program you can have your ticket refunded. More info on our Work Exchange coming soon.
Campground Tips, Tricks & Info
Bring Only What You Need – Everything you bring and build at Campout, has to go back home with you. Make your camp cozy, but remember the main festival area has an abundance of communal spaces to get loungey with your friends.
Free Form Camping – The tent and car camping areas at Dirtybird Campout are free form, meaning we don’t block out camping spots, we just fill people in where they fit
Keep It Compact – Make friends with your neighbors, and help eliminate wasted space between sites. Share the land by aiming to keep your site within the recommended parameters for every 2 people in your camp.
Good Car Parking Etiquette – When parking at the road edge, park your car perpendicular to the road- not parallel. Fill the inner spaces first so that we don’t create bubbles of unused space or block access to camping areas.
No Land Grabbing – If you want to camp with your friends please be sure to arrive with them, you will not be allowed to save large plots of land for people that are arriving later than you.
Respect Campground Staff – A team of campground staff will help to ensure space is being used efficiently. They have the authority to request cars be repositioned, and camps be adjusted. Those who do not comply may have their vehicle towed, or be removed from the event.
Campground Amenities – Our new venue is fully loaded with showers, picnic tables, as well as water, ice, and coffee for sale. See pg. XX for a complete list of amenities.
Shuttles – There will be shuttle service between the campgrounds and festival area throughout the weekend. FRI & SAT 9 am – 4:30 am, and SUN 9 am – Midnight. Times subject to change.
Sort Your Camp Trash – Recycling isn’t part of the foreplay, but it’s very important. We encourage everyone to take with them everything they brought in. If space is tight, or you have a long drive ahead, try the waste disposal service described on pg. XX.

Cooking, Grilling & Campfires

Navigating Through The Campsites
All of the streets within the campgrounds will be named so you can coordinate with your friends to find out where you want to camp. There is limited cell phone service at this venue so meeting up may be difficult. Set a meet point and time just in case!
Keep your beer and alcohol back at camp! There will be no alcohol permitted within the inner festival grounds where the stages, games and activities will be held.
