In the latest of exciting live stream sessions and programs keeping the music industry alive, Claude VonStroke’s label Dirtybird has announced the debut of electronic music television network DIRTYBIRD LIVE now available starting next week.The network will feature a series of ten weekly shows featuring a variety of content ranging from comedy skits to interviews, and of course accompanied by live DJ sets from the label’s array of talent. The network incorporates the same unique, eccentric vibes found at the widely popular festival Dirtybird Campout that has become known as the adult version of summer camp wrapped into a music festival.
During a time that has pushed producers and labels to become more creative than ever, Claude VonStroke surpasses the mark with the creation of DIRTYBIRD LIVE to provide a twist on the traditional live streams that electronic music fans have become accustomed to during worldwide coronavirus lockdowns. Thus far, Dirtybird has featured a weekly broadcast each Sunday as surprise guests join VonStroke himself on the live stream screen for live sets.
The creation of a daily show allows the multi-talented artists at Dirtybird to showcase their talent while giving a behind-the-scenes look into the lives of DJs normally only seen by fans from behind a deck. Rather than the traditional live stream set, the network has produced ten unique shows with different content to be broadcast seven days per week. To provide an interactive experience, the network has provided the opportunity for fans to submit ideas and pilots to add to the show.
According to Claud VonStroke, “I wasn’t having that much fun during the pandemic but as soon as I started working on this project with our team something changed. I finally see the opportunity to go wild online and now I’m dedicated to bring the most insane, fun and immersive experience for our fans. If we can’t have Dirtybird Campout we can still try to bring that amazing vibe to our people online. Thanks so much to Desert Hearts for inspiring us and showing us what’s possible.”
The shows will be available on Twitch, Youtube, and Facebook starting next week with new shows released each week. Check out the full schedule below and tune into dirtybirdlive.tv for more!
