Calling All Aspiring DJs and Producers! 🎧🎶

Dirtybird Campout is hosting a DJ competition! If you’re chosen as the winner, you’ll win a chance to play at the festival this year, meet Claude VonStroke, and get a fallen. backstage party pass experience!

Dirtybird Campout is happening Oct. 6-8, 2017 in Bradley, Calif. This year, the festival is moving from its home in Orange 7ish hours north to the park that has been the home of Lightning in a Bottle for the past few years. This means a huge lake, lots more space and well, more room for activities!

This year they are hosting a DJ competition for some lucky winner to play AT the festival! To enter, aspiring DJs and Producers need to create a new 30-minuted mini-mix inspired by any and all things Dirtybird Campout. I’m imaging some fun sound ups and Dirtybird beats in these mixes! A winner is then chosen based community votes, and the opinions of the judges. The mixes will even be judged on originality, vibe, and flow by Claude himself. You can listen to all the mixes here!
