Festival lineups are dropping left and right sending us all to pure chaos mode like “WHAT IN THE ACTUAL F#@$%&!!!!” The release of DIRTYBIRD CampINN has us shopping for swimsuits and checking flights to Orlando like ASAP Rocky. Prepare for a weekend of poolside fun as the DIRTYBIRD label takes over Avanti Pool Resort. Once you’re locked INN for the weekend, be prepared for one hell of a lineup, and safety protocols that must be met given we are still facing a global pandemic.
Join the weekend fun as Claude VonStroke and masterclass worldwide talent take over a full resort for DIRTYBIRD’s CampINN festival debut.
This lineup blends a variety of electronic subgenres stemming from the love of house. Starting with Chicago house founding fathers, Derrick Carter and Gene Farris, to longtime vets Holographic and Desert Heart’s founder, Mikey Lion. Add to the list with Pillowtalk, Codes, NALA, and Justin Jay. And bring the funk and disco with Soul Clap.
Claude VonStroke will lead under his alter ego Barclay Crenshaw to add to the heavier side of bass house, along with global phenomenon and grammy nominee TOKiMONSTA. Don’t forget the deep dark providers of Mr. Carmack and Tsuruda. Rounding up with DIRTYBIRD fan favs, Walker&Royce, Gettoblaster, Shiba San, and VNSSA. The list just keeps growing, especially as we highlight an Electric Hawk fan favorite on the lineup, Tiedye Ky.
CampINN Health and Safety Plans
With only 52 days away from the event, DIRTYBIRD is doing the best to ensure the safety of festival staff, artists, and attendees. CampINN guests will be split up into three Pods: Gator Squad, Flamingo Fam, and Scuba Squad. The pods will serve as a way to keep people grouped towards designated spots on the dance floor and at pool parties. The safety team consists of trained individuals that will encourage and enforce safety guidelines in a fun and positive way. They will help everyone stay protected and practice safe health procedures throughout the weekend.

As our lives were put on pause for the last year, we watched our beloved music festival industry diminish. Those artists we’ve grown to love took major pay cuts and now may be facing backlash as they decide whether or not these events seem ethical to perform at. Some may argue these events are not safe to return at this current time. However, we must face the reality that producers and artists are returning to their livelihood and incomes that are very well-deserved.
The DIRTYBIRD label has always served as an admiral powerhouse within the dance music community. As music festivals come back to life, we can only hope the CampINN festival will serve as a lead example of where we go from here.
