Dirtybird and Home Bass have put their hotel takeover experience, Dirtybird CampINN, on ice for the foreseeable future.
House label Dirtybird made some major moves for itself over the past decade with top-tier releases and curated shows that helped grow the flock to an enormous size. While the West Coast was graced with editions of Dirtybird Campout, their boutique summer camp-themed experience, members of the flock on the East Coast craved their own weekend of house, techno, and bass. First was Dirtybird Campout East, which ran for a year, but a phoenix rose from its ashes in the form of Dirtybird CampINN.
Dirtybird CampINN was a collaborative hotel takeover event that brought the minds of the label together with Home Bass for an experience in Florida unlike any other. Those attending past editions were treated to stacked lineups that featured some of the best and brightest from Dirtybird, along with some surprises along the way and, of course, plenty of fun activities to participate in. The community welcomed this intimate experience with open arms over the past three editions, but today, they’ve announced that Dirtybird CampINN is going on hiatus.
Last year, Dirtybird Campout announced that it would not be returning, and Dirtybird CampINN is following suit. Unlike the West Coast event, there was no official reason given for why the festival wouldn’t be taking place in 2024 or the foreseeable future, but even Claude VonStroke himself is taking a bit of a break to focus on his Barclay Crenshaw project next year.
That said, there’s a heavy focus on giving thanks to the community that made this event special. “We are so grateful for the last 3 years of this beautiful and INNcredible event we got to spend together,” the statement reads. “A special thank you to the attendees, staff, performers, and artists that made Dirtybird CampINN what it is today. Shoutout Gator Gang, Scuba Squad, and Flamingo Fam, your team spirit was on another level. We will cherish these memories made together for a lifetime.”
The Dirtybird CampINN team ended the message with hope for the future, though, saying that this isn’t a goodbye forever. So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for future announcements, and head to their official Facebook page to re-live the moments their photo team captured over the past three years.
