DIRTYBIRD’s carnival-themed Birdhouse festival first touched down in Chicago on the Michigan lakefront in 2018, quickly becoming a jewel in the city’s dance music scene. It’s return is now drawing close, and to celebrate, the brand has unveiled who will be taking the decks for its milestone second edition.  Claude VonStroke will of course be headlining, and is bringing label power players Walker & Royce along with him. Up-and-comers VNSSA and Mason Maynard will also be in attendance, along with a special b2b between cutting edge Berlin talent Chambray and DJ Deeon. Finally, a to-be-named special guest representative of Chicago’s house history will be taking the stage with Claude for a wild joint performance.

The festival returns to its home of the Theater on the Lake on September 7, and will be an 18+ event. Guests can expect all the fun of the year prior—including a wide array of immersive activities to complement DIRTYBIRD’s signature soundtracking.
