It’s graduation year for CRSSD Festival! Four hard-earned years toward a degree in House and Techno with straight-As across the board. How about a 4.0 GPA in getting down to some of the best DJs in the world?! Are these school puns working for you? Even if they aren’t, get ready to cure your winter blues with one of my personal favorite festivals in the world, happening for the fourth spring in a row down in San Diego March 3-4.
While I may be talking about “graduating”, there’s no indication CRSSD can ever be stopped.To my knowledge no other music festival throws two editions in the same year, six months apart. Very few other festivals in the U.S., let alone the world, book this level of talent all while being close to the ocean in the warmth of Southern California lasting just two days and requiring 21+ (trust me, age matters).
We’ve attended CRSSD each year since its inception and there are tons of reasons we keep going back. For me, it’s all about the music. This year’s edition features some of my personal favorites like Gorgon City, Cirez D, Mark Knight, Shiba San, Lee Burridge, Sasha, Nora En Pure, and even newcomers Eli Brown and CamelPhat. Combined, all three stages feature sounds from all spectrums of the dance and electronic music world and that’s something to get excited about. Still not sold? Check out last year’s review to get a feel for why we’re so pumped for March 2018.
