We’re beyond excited to bring the 5th Annual West Coast Dirtybird Campout back to our incredible Modesto Reservoir location. Last year was an adventure for everyone as we self-produced the event for the first time at a brand new venue. We listened closely to your feedback - what you liked, what you didn’t, and we’re pulling out all the stops to take 2019 to the next level.
Here are just some of the improvements we have planned for 2019:
DBC West 2019 - What's New This Year!
Prime Placement for Early Arrival Pass Holders (now called “Thursday Arrival Pass”)
Last year we know some Early Arrival Pass holders ended up with less than ideal camping positioning. We hear you, this shouldn’t have happened. This year all early arrivers will be guaranteed first dibs on the prime camping spots.
You come to dance, not walk. This year we’re revamping the event layout. Stages will be MUCH closer - allowing you to catch more sets and save your legs for the more enjoyable activities.
Bunkhouse Gets A New Location + New Name
Bunkhouse is moving to a new location, and will now be called “Claude’s Cabin”. It’s my favorite spot to hang out and I'm programming the entire run of show...so figured we should make that clear.
This year we’re improving the sound system. The Birdhouse Stage will be getting a sound upgrade. We'll deploy new techniques to contain the sound, and we’ll be adding more speakers in additon to increasing the levels within the area.
More Lighting + Better Signage
This year it’s going to be lit, literally. Better lighting and signage is a big part of our plans, improving both ambiance and safety.
Expect better bathrooms, better backstage amenities, and added suprises!
Bikes! Bikes! Bikes!
Why walk when you can cruise? To help you get around the site we’ll now be offering bike rentals and a way to store them throughout the event.
Group Camping Upgrade
Camping with your crew gets comfier. Group camping spots will be upgraded with better electrical access.
Birds Nest Luxury (Boutique) Camping Upgrade
You will have better campsite placement, more private bathrooms, electrical upgrades, and a new and improved lounge area!
This is just a taste of what we have in store this year. Stay tuned for more info.
Summer isn’t over until October. We’ll see you soon!
