Dirtybird Announces Hiatus for East Coast Campout, Promises 2020 Return
The 2018 Florida event was marred by a partial shutdown
This past year, Dirtybird Campout East Coast was unexpectedly shut down mid-festival as noise complaints from nearby residents in Saint Cloud, Florida poured in. The event eventually continued as planned the following day (after some help from Pitbull), giving East Coast campers a very unique experience of uncertainty.
A few months later, Dirtybird came back strong with its West Coast version of Campout in a new lakeside venue in Central California. However, as successful as the California event was, the same cannot be said for its Florida counterpart.
In a post on social media, Dirtybird Campout announced they would not be returning to Florida in 2019. Citing months of research and different options explored, the team at Dirtybird decided to hold off on this year’s festivities to solidify a great experience for campers in 2020.

Dear Campers, We're sorry to announce that after many months of research and countless avenues explored we will not be able to execute the best possible East Coast Campout in 2019. We know that February's 2018 East Coast event was not perfect, and we want to be absolutely sure that when we come back, the quality of our production is not compromised. We appreciate your understanding and support and we are going to spend the entirety of 2019 working on bringing this event back better than ever in 2020! Dirtybird Campout 🏕️🐣 📸: @brittanynofomo
No other news was announced regarding the West Coast edition of the festival.
Kaskade Takes a Tumble During New Year’s Eve Performance
The DJ and producer posted the fall on his social media page
Kaskade ended his busy New Year’s Eve festivities with a fall in front of thousands of fans in San Francisco. The event at the city’s historic Bill Graham Civic Auditorium was the last stop in his holiday tour.
The fall was captured on video and was posted on Kaskade’s Instagram page. In the video, Kaskade can be seen jumping on top of the decks, only to lose his balance, trying to hold on to a nearby speaker and fall to the stage floor.
He manages to get back up and, with mic in hand, he announces to the crowd he’s alright. He joked about it afterward, captioning his post, “Don’t worry Mom, I’m OK. #NYE”
In February of 2016, Paul van Dyk took a hard fall during his set at A State of Trance in The Netherlands and suffered serious damage to his spine as well as a brain injury. The trance DJ’s recovery was lengthy, but he eventually returned to making music and performed live a few months later at EDC Las Vegas.
