Dirtybird BBQ Tickets
Dirtybird BBQ TicketsThe first Dirtybird BBQ was launched in 2003 at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Since then, it has moved to a more official venue in the Bay Area as well as expanded to other cities like Los Angeles and Austin. This is typically a summer event, but the 2019 Dirtybird BBQ in the Bay Area was held on May 4 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds. The 2016 Bay Area event was held at the end of August, while the 2017 event was held on June 4. It started as a free event that offered food so that the founding group could spin its version of house and techno music to a crowd. It became an anticipated festival as well as a music label that marches to the beat of its own sound system.
Humble BBQ BeginningsTwo brothers had an idea one day to start having free barbecues for people in the Bay Area to attend. Their ultimate goal was to become DJs, so they figured that adding food and free admission would eventually be something that people would want to attend. They were right. It started with a $4,700 credit card purchase of a sound system. It led to an event that attracted larger crowds than their picnic permit at the Golden Gate Park would allow. The founders eventually had to stop the barbecues in order to regroup. Then, they found their footing and a way to fund festivals at venues that would attract at least 2,500 attendees.
