The palms of my hands accumulated sweat, saturating the textiles hanging from the clothing rack. Hastily, I proceeded to cover my upper torso with a red, skintight leotard while the bottom half of my body donned a black, loose-fitting skirt. An uncombed, short-haired pink wig sat upon my head, sunglasses covered my eyes, and I was rushed to the stage.

After having an absolute blast last October, my crew and I were excited as ever to be returning to the Modesto Reservoir for another edition of Dirtybird Campout this year. Looking to arrive as close to gates as possible, we set off on the road at 4am from San Diego. We had already heard of the long wait when we arrived in line around 3pm and in total it took us three more hours to get into the campground. Although the sun was quickly fading from the sky it actually felt shorter due to some friends we made in line, and once we were inside we quickly unpacked and began to set up our tents and campsite. Thinking that we had found our home for the weekend, a very confusing situation arose as someone with a clipboard came over and told us we would be having a group meeting soon. It was then that we realized at some point we had been directed to the wrong place to camp.
The second phase of artists for this wild weekender in February has just been announced, adding to an already jam-packed collection of elite selectors from around the globe.
