Dirtybird Campout: 18 photos that show the madness in action

With the first-ever edition of East Coast America's hedonistic (adult) summer camp almost upon us, we thought it wise to show some of the action from last year's West Coast event, whetting appetites for what's in store for Florida this February...

DityBird Campout has well and truly cemented its reputation for silliness, serious tunes, and a stunning California location.

The fundamental principle being Claude VonStroke, who recently shared his set from DirtyBird Campout West, his closest associates and allies taking over a summer camp, filling it with soundsystems, top DJs and live acts, and die hard party-goers that understand the joys of a weekend spent losing the plot in a place that's usually home to kids learning life skills. 

Between 2nd and 4th February 2018, the same madness hits St Cloud, Florida, for the inaugural instalment of DirtyBird Campout East. The likes of &Me, Adam Port, Craze, DJ Tennis, Green Velvet, Ivy Lab, Justin Martin, LTJ Bukem, Marshall Jefferson, MK, Pearson Sound, Roni Size, Soul Clap, and Wolf + Lamb are locked in, with a host of extra-curricular activites also on offer. 

These include alligator wrestling, axe throwing, double Dutch coordination testing, hula hoop championships, a SuperB Owl party, and swamp survival training. All of which are in addition to classics from the West Coast bash, such as field games, costumed canoe races, scavenger hunts, and totem crafting. Probably the best set of ideas the clubbing world has seen in many years, we've put together the following 18 photos that show just how insane the last Californian edition was, getting you in the mood for next month. 

And don't forget, we're currently running a competition for two lucky people to check all this for themselves, including international transport to the event, and a load of merchandise. Details of that here.
