In an era when “festival season” is now year-long, and a new EDM fest seems to spark up every week, the people behind CRSSD Fest are bringing us a breathe of fresh air both figuratively, and literally with a unique lineup and previously untapped waterfront location in sunny San Diego.
If you’re not familiar with all the names on the flyer above, that’s because they haven’t been overbooked at every dance music festival in North America. No big-room banger sets that seem to repeat themselves endlessly here. Nope, here’s some real talent that the more seasoned dance music fan will certainly appreciate. An eclectic mix of deep house (Maceo Plex, Damian Lazarus) indie-dance (Flight Facilities, Goldroom) tropical house (Thomas Jack) and straight funk (Chromeo, Treasure Fingers) will make this one of the vibiest, grooviest festivals we’ve been to in quite some time.
San Diego’s Waterfront Park. As the name indicates, it’s right on SD’s beautiful bay. Imagine a gentle sea breeze, grass, and even fountains all surrounded by modern architecture. There’s something about the perfect setting that makes music that much more enjoyable. Those tunes are going to sound really, REALLY good. And since FNGRS CRSSD has partnered up with Goldenvoice for the planning of the festival, you can expect nothing short of the best organization and great production value as well.
CRSSD Fest is set to take place in San Diego on March 14th and 15th, strictly for the 21+ crowd. For maximum enjoyment we suggest you hop on a 2-day pass before they run out, but single day passes will be available today starting at 2PM.
