Dirtybird Campout boasts a special environment where the line between artist and attendee is blurred. It’s just a normal camp afternoon when you see Claude VonStroke in the middle of the dance floor, or when you get teamed up with Ardalan for the sack races. That’s just the Dirtybird Campout way. But beyond seeing your favorite artists on the lineup roaming the festival grounds and getting to know campers, there’s even more opportunity to connect with this year’s counselors.
Check out the various activities that this year’s lineup artists will be getting involved with while at Campout…
Walker & Royce Self Help Booth
Where: Self Help Booth at the Dirtybird Campout Store

On both Friday and Saturday (exact times TBA), Sam and Gavin will be stationed at their Self Help Booth to dish out advice to fans – good, bad and hilarious. Other artists will be dropping by throughout the weekend too… you never know who might show up!

Games & Activities Color Team Tournaments
Where: All Tournaments
When: All Weekend Long
A part of what makes Campout so unique is that the artists are your counselors and get in the game right alongside you. Everyone goes to Games HQ at the start of Campout, has a random colored bandana selected for them, and heads off into the playing field. Once you and your favorite birds have joined your corresponding colored teams, it’s all about earning points in every activity all the way through to the Ironbird Championship. Be sure to participate and get in the game all weekend long!
Yee-Haw Talent Show Judges

When: Saturday, 6-8pm
Attention campers! Come show off your talents for a chance to be the winner of the annual Great American Talent Show: YEE-HAW EDITION! brought to you by the Grand Artique! As always, the show will be judged by a panel of mystery birds and Campout Counselors. Perhaps Justin Martin will be rating your wild dance moves, or maybe you’ll dazzle Ardalan with your best magic trick—whatever the case, catch your camp counselors pass their best judgement upon campers brave enough to take the stage. All are welcome to participate and watch! Space is limited so sign up Friday 12-2pm & 4-6pm at Games HQ!
