Eight years ago, house producer Claude VonStroke dreamt of an independent music festival that could cut through the mediocrity of corporate raving and foster a community of weirdos and dance heads looking for something more. The result was Dirtybird Campout – a wild and free playground for fans of all backgrounds, a place where creativity and positivity reign supreme, and a destination where you can come of age, again and again, every summer.
Now for the first time ever, that dream has taken on a whole new meaning with the addition of the Ganja Garden Presented by People’s Remedy. Throughout the weekend, campers will get the chance to experience a cannabis retail and consumption garden featuring flower, vaporizers, beverages, and edibles, along with a unique program of cannabis-focused activities. Ganja Garden will be a silly smoked-out edition to an already out-there weekender.
The Ganja Garden is Presented by People’s Remedy, who are the Central Valley’s first adult use and medical cannabis dispensary. Through People’s Remedy, campers will also enjoy 30% off their first purchase on either Thursday or Friday in the Ganja Garden as part of the “Early Bird Gets the Herb” promotion. The supporting partner for this area is JOSHWAX, a premium cannabis cultivator that grows veganic, biodynamic products without harsh chemicals.
In true Dirtybird Campout fashion, this programming will include a mix of games, prizes, music, and activities that provide even more entertainment to an already packed weekend. Attendees can compete for prizes in contests like Joint & Blunt Rolling, Bong Building, and coming up with the best Strain Names, along with taking part in Puff Puff Pass Debates where competitors get a pre-roll and have the length it takes to smoke it to win a debate.
If that wasn’t enough, Campers can also pitch their best idea during Highdeas, play a cannabis-themed game of Mafia during High Murder Mystery, and participate in a Dealer Dating Game where contestants need pick a ‘date’ with hidden ‘dealers’ behind the screen and guess what they’re selling. Additional highlights include Claude’s Favorite Movie with four selections of his choice throughout the weekend, the Official Dirtybird Pong Tournament, a Mycologist class with a mushroom expert, and more passive entertainment like Coloring Books, Kinetic Sand, Card Games, and Thinking Putty.
Music is also on the menu in the Ganja Garden, which will include Wake & Bake Beats from 10am-1pm on Friday-Sunday. This will include a Campout Comp B2B with Arnold & Lane, Kevin Knapp, and Luke Andy, along with sets from Benji Fink, Da Casa, Deron Delgado, DJ Sneak, Scavazza, Tiana Terese, ZOF, and Zora Monico.
Dirtybird Campout continues to prevail as the best boutique music festival in the world, where both the uninitiated and veterans merge on the dancefloor and games field alike to get down like it’s the last party on earth. The eighth edition of the annual summer camp for wannabe grownups takes place at the Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds in Central California from October 7th – 9th.
