Founded in the heart of San Diego, California back in 2013, CRSSD Festival emerged during a time when the phrase “musical diversity” failed to satisfy the cravings of those seeking underground house and techno music scenes. Fast forward to present day, and the fest has become a social staple for those looking to escape the mainstream and immerse themselves in the 4-on-the-floor rumble.
Debuting at the first CRSSD Festival in San Diego in 2015, the gathering features a myriad of international artists who are renowned for their ability to make their cities move in their respective home countries. With each passing year, the festival only gets better and better, delivering live performances by some of the most iconic musicians around. This year’s lineup included the likes of ODESZA, Polo & Pan, Becky Hill, Channel Tres, Phantoms, Yelle, Bedouin, Kavinsky, Purple Disco Machine, Deborah De Luca, Maya Jane Coles, UMEK, AMÉMÉ, Anfisa Letyago, and more.
On March 4th and 5th, CRSSD Festival once again took over the Waterfront Park in San Diego, taking festival-goers on a sonic journey along a coastal paradise that was nothing short of breathtaking. The festival offered a haven for the outlandish, making it a truly unique force to be reckoned with. If you’re looking for an unforgettable musical experience that’ll transport you to another world, then CRSSD Festival is the place to be.
