With less than ten days left until CRSSD, we’ve compiled a playlist of tracks from some of the artists featured on this fall’s lineup. This will definitely help get you through the upcoming days of anticipation, or perhaps excite you enough to buy a last-minute weekend pass or Sunday ticket (Saturday is sold out).
CRSSD has built its legacy by curating the future-tastes of the evolving West Coast music scene. Now seen as a barometer for both the rising underground and explosion of live electronic, CRSSD has solidified itself as a beacon for the more mature and innovative sounds of the modern scene.
The festival’s lineup boasts some of the scene’s most in-demand talent and celebrated underground acts. Indie-electronic gold will return to Ocean View Live from the likes of Big Wild, Louis The Child, and Kiiara. Rounding out the event’s underground contingent will be the experimental sonics of Mount Kimbie, analog synth expert The Hacker, and London house & techno icons Leftwing & Kody. CRSSD favorites like the genre-hopping Mija, electro-funk duo Oliver, and DIRTYBIRD’s bearded prodigal son Will Clarke will also make their much-anticipated return.
The Fall 2018 lineup is one of CRSSD’s best to date. These artists join Ocean View Live headliners like Duke Dumont, Bob Moses, and Marian Hill, all shades of house at The Palms with Claptone, Dusky, Anti-Up (Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo), AC Slater b2b Jack Beats, Will Clarke, and Thomas Jack, and of course techno’s return to City Steps with Nina Kraviz, John Digweed, Mind Against, Matador, Pig&Dan, and Helena Hauff. CRSSD has established a unique vibe built around Southern California culture and dance music’s underground roots, becoming a destination for music devotés 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 waterfront stages. CRSSD also offers craft beer, gourmet food vendors from San Diego’s best restaurants, and a full mixology program. CRSSD is a 21+ festival.
