Dirtybird Presents: The Birdhouse Festival

Claude VonStroke’s City Carnival Reimagined: Games, Prizes, Cotton Candy, Beats, Beers + More

Coming to Chicago on September 8th

Tickets available Thursday (7/19) at 10am CDT. More info here: bit.ly/birdhousefest

Dirtybird is back at it again with the latest and greatest in Claude VonStroke’s ever-growing live event catalog: The Birdhouse Festival, touches down in Chicago on September 8th.

VonStroke is reimagining the classic carnival experience as only he can. Forget neon lights + pyro, the Birdhouse Festival will be filled with old school games and your favorite carnival foods (who doesn’t love corndogs and cotton candy?) taking place outdoors in the late summer sunshine of Chicago, soundtracked by all your favorite DJs.

The Birdhouse promises to pair great music with a tinge of American midwestern nostalgia, a throwback to simpler times and the thrill of summer evenings where anything seems possible.  Incredible Back to Back Dj sets (some honoring Chicago’s amazing artists) will go hand in hand with ice cream and signed dirtybird prizes.

The Birdhouse festival will be produced in partnership with Silver Wrapper, producers of the iconic North Coast Festival, Suwannee Hulaween, and countless Chicago events.

Birdhouse festival tickets, information and line-up can be found here. (bit.ly/birdhousefest)

The Birdhouse festival precedes the famous West Coast Campout, taking place on October 5-7 in California. Tickets and info are also available for that event at https://www.dirtybirdcampout.com/west/. Check out the complete lineup here.

 

About Claude VonStroke

In this day and age of music cross-polination, Claude VonStroke sits at the forefront of all that is good, proper and most importantly, fun.

VonStroke is just as relaxed in his home studio building beats as he is dropping massive underground records in a room filled by thousands. DJ-wise, his relentless touring of every major city, festival and basement after-party around the world has only enriched his unique perspective on music.


As the owner of the record label, DIRTYBIRD, Claude also built an impeccable A&R roster signing acts like Justin Martin, Julio Bashmore, Catz n Dogz, Riva Starr, Tim Green, Breach, Eats Everything, Shadow Child and Shiba San, well before they broke out of their hometown scenes. (And even naming a few of these artists.) Today, DIRTYBIRD continues to surprise and innovate in the underground dance scene, releasing an enigmatic combination of house, funk, dirty-bass and electronica.

Sonically, VonStroke has released three original artist albums, a remix album and several high profile mix and remix compilations. Highlights include working with and on records for Bootsy Collins, Rihanna, Disclosure and Green Velvet as well as a few number #1 & #2 hits on Beatport.

Most importantly, VonStroke has kept it original, fun and funky.

A lot of his success can be attributed to a good attitude. Claude does not scowl and look mean while he DJs. He does not pretend to know everything and he truly loves his fans. He is grateful to be curating, creating and performing music for a living and he knows that the reason people go to parties is to shake their booty and have fun. Catch him play at numerous festivals, clubs or even better at his legendary DIRTYBIRD BBQ series of outdoor events.
