Dirtybird Campout Music Festival Review

Our latest music festival review was a real treat to create. This time our adventures lead us to the inaugural Dirtybird Campout music festival. This event was co-produced by Dirtybird Records and Do LAB. The fest featured a house-heavy lineup with some of the best electronic music producers in the U.S.A. The single stage was complemented by fields full of festival goers, too. Everyone got to participate in summer camp themed activities and competitions.
