CRSSD Returns To Waterfront Park!!

CRSSD is Back at Waterfront Park!!!

I am so ready to enjoy festivals! CRSSD Festival will make its long awaited return to San Diego’s Waterfront Park September 25-26th. Now we’ve got a lineup to go with it! The festival dropped more than thirty names that criss-cross the breadth and history of dance music. More names will be announced in the coming weeks. 

CRSSD launched in 2015. Since then, we’ve seen them showcase some of the best stars of dance music and highlight the power of live music. The festival is proud to place rising talent in prime time slots as well as giving time to those iconic artists you can’t miss out on. Waterfront Park is such an urban oasis too. The venue boasts grassy lawns, fountains, magical sunsets, and is close to the city center! You’re going to love the location that CRSSD is using!

Let’s Talk About That Lineup!

CRSSD will have some amazing artists on their lineup such as Grammy winner KAYTRANDA and Zhu. In addition, German techno icon Paul Kalkbrenner will also soundtrack a live sunset set. But that isn’t all! The jazz infused electronica of Flying Lotus will sit alongside contemporary envelope pushers including Boys Noize and Jon Hopkins, while Tiga and Hudson Mohawke will also present the US live debut of their rave inspired LOVE MINUS ZERO project.


The legacy of dance music’s roots can be traced to CRSSD’s Palms Stage! You’ll see sets from Detroit figureheads Carl Craig and Moodymann! In addition, the East Coast house and club pioneers Mood II Swing, Todd Terry, and the revered Kerri Chandler will throw down. Topping the Palms will be three of house music’s biggest current underground stars in Hot Since 82, Jamie Jones and CamelPhat. The stage will also host a performance from the South Korean multi-hyphenate, DJ, producer, and vocalist Park Hye Jin.

But you’ll get that techno as well! Techno will be the dominant genre on City Steps, with a very rare West Coast set for Cocoon icon Sven Väth, as well as the incendiary ANNA and Paula Temple, Italian Max Kobosil and Detroit’s Robert Hood. There will also be notable house sets from Kölsch, Dennis Ferrer B2B Cassy, Rinse FM tastemaker T.Williams and South African trumpeter and producer Kareem Ali.

CRSSD is located at Waterfront Park, just minutes away from the Amtrak station. CRSSD’s grassy haven offers craft beer, gourmet food vendors, and a full mixology program. CRSSD is a 21+ festival. Grab those tickets here!
