Dirtybird Campout West Coast is an adult summer camp and music festival held October 5th- 7th, 2018. This is our 4th annual West Coast Campout and we have a new venue: Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds.

Early Arrival Pass holders can access the campgrounds and festival areas on Thursday, October 4th, 2018 at 2pm. An Early Arrival Pass must be purchased to arrive on this date. Gate opening time is 2pm. There will be a Pajama Party and a surprise DJ set Thursday evening (time TBD).

The Dirtybird Campout Games Headquarters (Games HQ) located in the festival grounds will open on Thursday afternoon for Early Arrival Pass holders. Music stages will open Friday October 5, 2018 at 12:00 pm.

All Campgrounds close at 12:00 pm on Monday October 8th, 2018.




Dirtybird Campout West is now located at Modesto Reservoir Campground, a beautiful regional park in Stanislaus County, California. Located just (7) miles east of the town of Waterford off Hwy 132, our new home has over 2,800 acres of reservoir to host our summer-camp style playground and music event.

Do I need to purchase a pass for my vehicle or RV?

Yes, ALL vehicles entering Dirtybird Campout (except bicycles and motorcycles) must purchase a Vehicle Pass in addition to their festival ticket. Vehicle Passes will allow you to camp with your vehicle inside the campgrounds. RV’s and vehicles with trailers will need to purchase an RV Pass instead of a Vehicle Pass. There are no additional parking options available inside or around the venue!

What's a VIB Pass?

The VIB Pass includes everything in the 3-Day Pass, plus access to backstage lounge, private restroom and bar, and one Campout BBQ ticket!

What's an Early Arrival Pass?

Early Arrival Passes allow you to come into the Campout a day early and we will have music programming on Thursday evening (stay tuned for lineup!), starting at 2pm on Thursday, October 4th, Early Arrival Pass holders will be able to enter the campgrounds and set up their campsite and get settled. You still need a Festival Pass or VIB Pass in addition to the Early Arrival Pass. Main festival programming still starts on Friday at 12pm.

What is a Group Camping Pass?

The Group Camping Pass allows you to camp with your friends in a prime shoreline location up to 8 people. This campaign pass includes 2 vehicle passes. The spot is 24' x 48' and can usually hold 4 tents + 2 vehicles.

Are there payment plans for tickets?

What is the refund policy?

Is my ticket transferable?

There are no refunds on tickets, but you can transfer them if you are unable to attend. Please review Eventbrite’s How to Update Your Ticket Information Tutorial HERE for details on how to do this.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes, you will need to bring your printed ticket to the box office at the entrance to receive your festival wristband. No one will be allowed entry without a proper festival wristband on.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

If the name on the ticket does not match the name of the attendee, that is okay. Be careful to make sure that you don't lose your ticket or have it stolen from you because if it is used before you arrive, you will have to purchase another one.

Are there day passes?

No. Currently there are only full weekend passes available for this event. Day passes have not been available the last 2 years at Dirtybird Campout West Coast.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email and we'll assist you with any questions you may have.


Logistics & Venue FAQ


When can I come into the Campout / what are the event gate hours?

You may only enter the festival during the event gate / box office hours. You are free to leave at any time, but you may not go in and out. Wristband pickup and festival admittance to the event will not be permitted outside of gate hours! The gate & box office hours will be posted closer to the event.

Is there parking available onsite?

There will be limited vehicle passes to park and camp with your vehicles inside the campgrounds with the purchase of a Vehicle or RV Pass. If you do not purchase a Vehicle or RV Pass, there are no additional parking lots inside or around the new venue. You do not need to purchase a Vehicle Pass for each person riding in the vehicle, but everyone (including the driver) does need to have a 3-Day Pass or VIB Pass to come in with the vehicle. Bicycles and motorcycles are excluded.

Are there ins and outs at the festival?

You may leave the festival at any time, but there are no ins and outs. It's dangerous to drive your car around the festival grounds so we are prohibiting ins and outs this year. Check the website for gate hours.

I'm coming from out of town. What airport do I fly to?

The closest airport to Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds is Oakland International Airport, about 1.5 hours away from the venue. San Jose International Airport and Sacramento are about 2 hours away, San Francisco International Airport is 3 hours away, and Los Angeles International Airport is about 4.5 hours away. You can hitch a ride to Dirtybird Campout on the Camp Bus from Oakland and Los Angeles airports! Tickets will be available to purchase during the General Onsale.

What are my transportation options getting to the event if I don’t have a car?

There will be Camp Bus tickets available for purchase at the general onsale offering round-trip transportation from Oakland and Los Angeles to the event.

Can I bring an RV? Is there any additional cost?

Yes, you can bring an RV to the Campout with the purchase of an RV Pass (available as a separate item on the ticket page). Any vehicle larger than a van or towing a trailer will need to purchase an RV Pass. Your RV can not be larger than 52ft and there are three options of RV Passes for purchase: 1) RV Pass with Non-Hookups, 2) RV Pass with Electric, Water & Sewer and 3) RV Pass with Electric & Water. Please keep your entire footprint in mind when purchasing your RV pass. For example, if your car is towing your trailer, the length of your car must be included. One RV Camping Pass is good for one RV. You do not need to purchase a RV Camping Pass for each person camping in the RV, but everyone (including the driver) does need to have a 3-Day Pass or VIB Pass to come in with the RV.

What pass does my vehicle need?

• Van or Camper-Van =  Vehicle
• Minibus or bigger = RV
• Car with Trailer = RV
• 5th Wheel = RV

Please note the state limits of length for RVs. 45ft is the state max of your RV and 65’ with a trailer.

Can my friends with Vehicle Passes camp next to me in my RV Campsite?

There will be two distinct areas for Car Camping and RVs. At this new location, we are not able to mix car camping and RV Hookups and RV Non-Hookups – even if you arrive together.

Can I camp with my car?

Yes! Everyone that brings a vehicle and purchases a vehicle pass will be able to camp next to their vehicle. There will be no additional parking lots in or around the venue. For this reason, ALL attendees with vehicles entering Dirtybird Campout (except bicycles and motorcycles) must purchase a Vehicle or RV Pass in addition to their festival ticket.
