Dirtybird Campout West Coast has announced the festival’s postponement until 2021, marking the first of fall festivals that have fallen victim to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The festival was originally slated to return to the Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds for their annual event in October 2020, however recently organizers made the decision to return on October 8 – 10, 2021. After an unprecedented wave of summer festivals like EDC Las Vegas and Bonnaroo have been forced to postpone their events to the fall, the remainder of festivals that haven’t yet made a decision may fold this year due to the inevitable saturation of overlapping events that have moved to September and October.
Though the West Coast festival has parted ways with the possibility of a deferred date, the Dirtybird team including label boss Claude VonStroke have pointed to their brand new festival Dirtybird CampINN. The three-day festival is scheduled to take place during the September 4 – 6 weekend in Orlando, Florida.
