“I must have went to house heaven, because nothing’s that divine.”
And that’s exactly how we felt after attending CRSSD Fest and being immersed in dance music for the weekend. Following the epic debut back in March, FNGRS CRSSD and Goldenvoice have put together another incredible two-day music festival that undoubtedly put San Diego on the radar for all the music fanatics in the world. When going to a music event, there are certain make-or-breaks that determine our experiences, and CRSSD has nailed all of them. Beautiful venue set-up, extraordinary theme-driven atmosphere, San Diegan food/drink sponsors, just to name a few awesome perks for all the attendees. Each one of the three stages held its own unique character, and featured artists that best fit the specific stage category.
The Palms stage was prepared in a greenery outfit which featured chill trap and future dance acts like Todd Terje, Blonde, Tchami and back-to-back acts with Goldroom b2b Le Youth, and Cashmere Cat b2b Trippy Turtle. The City Steps stage was a full-on display of deep house galore, as Hayden James, Anna Lunoe, Andhim, Claptone and many other took the stage. And finally, Ocean View Live is the festival’s main stage that featured crowd-pleasing acts like AlunaGeorge, The Flaming Lips, TV On The Radio and Zhu.
