Last weekend, Claude VonStroke and his team at Dirty Bird Records took over the lush oasis at Oak Canyon Ranch for the first annual Dirty Bird Campout. With activities like archery and potato sack races, the themed festival did more than just recreate the traditional sleep-away summer camp: It brought a fresh spin to the festival circuit and bridged the gap between festival goers and performers putting them on platform to interact with one another.
"[The Campout] is really different," said English DJ Billy Kenny, one of Dirty Bird Records newest additions to the roster. "They really broke all the rules, man," he said. "It's fucking wicked vibes."
