Though the Dirtybird Campout festival may not have shown up on your radar this year, this recap video by Media Stranger will make sure you don’t forget about when it’s coming around next year. With an Electric Forest-style setting and an aesthetic reminiscent of the movie Moonrise Kingdom, this is a festival that’s clearly broken new ground and has an energy all its own. Emphasis here is on the strange and peculiar with festival goers’ sense of expression as diverse and unique as the imaginations of kids aged not far beyond the single digits.
The sense of community among this year’s participants is also palpable. Not only is there a goofy rag-tag camaraderie through all the shenanigans, there’s also a sense of reckless abandon as the sun goes down. Check out the recap video for this year’s inaugural Dirtybird Campout below:
