Since its emergence five seasons ago, CRSSD has become one of North America’s most celebrated electronic music festivals. Each year CRSSD curates two industry leading events which champion a balance of the dance world’s most talked about talent and future stars. A combination of forward thinking bookings and the idyllic Pacific coast backdrop at the Waterfront Park make it the crown jewel of the West Coast festival calendar.
CRSSD’s home for the flourishing live electronic world remains Ocean View Live, where fans can see their favorite instrumentalist acts perform against sunset views and landing planes as the backdrop. This year Ocean View will feature experimental rock impresarios Portugal. The Man, English indie icons Hot Chip, urban beatsmith Kaytranada, Parisian live house duo Polo & Pan, a full band set from lo-fi legend Ross From Friends, plus the much anticipated triumph of Kaskade (Redux).
The Palms will once again act as CRSSD’s HQ for house-heads with blow out sets in store from giants like FISHER, MK, Shiba San B2B Walker & Royce, and Eli & Fur. The underground will also be on full display on Palms with left of center performances by Yaeji, Yung Bae, Derrick Carter B2B Mark Farina, Audiojack, Kevin Knapp and more.
It remains City Steps that solidifies CRSSD’s position amongst the world’s best techno focused events. CRSSD favorite and ENTER. leader Richie Hawtin will make his much anticipated return, joined by of the moment stars like Amelie Lens, Objekt, Artbat, Julian Jeweil, Dr. Rubinstein, and Michael Bibi. It is this forward-thinking curation that makes CRSSD an educational hub for the West Coast electronic scene.
The weekend-long takeover also offers CRSSD By Day and After Dark parties that span the city and grace attendees with intimate club sets from some of the festival’s elite artist roster.
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 adorned with picturesque sunsets, splash friendly fountains, and three waterfront stages.
