Taking place on September 24th & 25th at the Waterfront Park in downtown San Diego, USA, the fall edition of CRSSD festival is pulling out all the stops for a sell out return to the event circuit. Known for lush and exciting stage designs, the Autumnal festival is sure to excite all the senses.
With hiatuses in 2020, and 2021 respectively, this will be CRSSD’s second showcase of the year – with the Spring edition featuring the likes of Gorgon City, Four Tet, Nina Kraviz b2b Helena Hauff, and a plethora of other heavyweight DJs.
This Autumn, along the Pacific Coast and views overlooking downtown, the acts in store are on par with those of the Spring edition. The Ocean View stage will see Duck Sauce, Jamie XX, Caribou, and Fred Again all performing. German artist’s Moderat, RnB live duo DRAMA, Nu disco pairing L’Impératrice, and KUU – the supergroup of Alex Metric, Riton, and Shungudzo will round things off.
The second stage, named The Palms; will welcome house groovers and shakers, with Area 10 boss MK on the books, with Dom Dolla, ARTBAT and rave royalty Fatboy Slim. Crowd favourite Sonny Fodera and UK act Deeper Purpose will also take to the stage.
CRSSD also considers it’s techno crowd and this event is no different. Cocoon founder Sven Väth, minimal pioneer Richie Hawtin, Filth On Acid head honcho Reinier Zonneveld, and deadmau5’s alter-ego Testpilot will be on the City Steps stage.
Beyond the music, you can expect delicious food, craft beer & cocktails, and there’s even a record shop where you can go crate digging. There’s also a tech centre, where you may be lucky to bump into some of your favourite artists!
