CRSSD Festival Announces Spring ’18 Lineup
CRSSD Festival has released its lineup for the Spring 2018 event, the seventh edition to date. The festival returns to the heart of downtown San Diego on the Pacific shoreline at Waterfront Park. CRSSD has significantly established itself as a beacon for boundary-pushing live and electronic music sets.
Over its six previous years, CRSSD has brought to light some of the world’s most exciting artists. Likewise, each lineup explores the intersections of electronic music with world-class acts paired with emerging talents of tomorrow.
Overall, 2018 will be no different, with edgy mainstage performances on the Ocean View stage and beyond. Empire Of The Sun, as well as the soulful house-sounds of Gorgon City, will kick off the headliners. In addition, Indie darling Bonobo, rhythmical dreaminess from Sweden’s Little Dragon, in your face swagger from The Presets, the danceable composer Henry Saiz, and a special guest performance from Tchami will all be at CRSSD.
Some of techno’s best-known producers will play the City Steps. Mouseville Records label boss Cirez D (the dark alter-ego of Eric Prydz), techno’s first lady Nicole Moudaber, the progressive pioneer and uniquely talented Sasha, current Grammy nominee Camelphat, the rapidly rising Belgian talents of Charlotte de Witte and Amelie Lens, and the European powerhouses of Mark Knight, Alan Fitzpatrick, and Patrice Baumel.
CRSSD’s Palms stage will continue to support the very best house DJs as well as the ever-evolving future sounds of electronic music, including Jai Wolf’s inimitable chart-topping global blends. All Day I Dream frontman Lee Burridge will spin his bewitching take on house music alongside Aussie icon and Beats1 broadcaster Anna Lunoe, and the always groovy MK. In addition, SoCal’s bass-driven house music will be repped by some of the DIRTYBIRD collective’s finest including Walker & Royce, Shiba San, Sebastian V, and Kyle Watson.
In short, the festival has established a unique vibe built around Southern California culture and dance music’s underground roots. It is a destination for music devotees who crave the avant-garde shades of electronic music. Just minutes away from the Amtrak station, CRSSD’s grassy haven is complete with picturesque sunsets, splash friendly fountains, and three stages. CRSSD also offers craft beer, gourmet food vendors from San Diego’s best restaurants, and a full mixology program. CRSSD is a 21+ age event.
