Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, along with many other great acts, will once again be rolling into the Joshua Tree region of California later this month to co-host their 11th annual CAMPOUT music festival.
 
CAMPOUT 11 will take place August 27th, 28th and 29th at Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace in the High Desert of Southern California, which just happens to be the exact spot where Cracker recorded their signature album Kerosene Hat back in 1993 in the now-closed movie soundstage next to the Palace.

Collectively, both Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven have released four albums in the last two years as their own personal odes to the north and south regions of California – Ccloseracker’s 2014 double album Berkeley to Bakersfield and CVB’s last two studio efforts, La Costa Perdida from 2013 and El Camino Real from 2014. Along with performing a wealth of this more recent material, both bands will also be digging deep into their vast catalogs of radio staples, college favorites and deep cuts. And who knows, perhaps CVB may even be persuaded to perform one of their two brand new songs that were recently included in the soundtrack for Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! [“We Got A Long Way To Go (To Get Away From This Sharknado)” and “Infinite Ocean”].

August 12 – Empire State Plaza – Albany, NY (Cracker)
