With summer in the tail winds and winter weather quickly approaching, we know you’re frantically looking for any possible way to relive your spring and summer festival glory. Before you unpack all your boots and scarfs, take your summer festival clothes for a final spin out at the beautiful Waterfront park for San Diego’s bi-annual CRSSD Festival!
Here’s 5 reasons why you should snag a last-minute ticket and pack your bags for a San Diego getaway:
The typical perspective is that MORE is always better. But as a lot of you know from experience, festivals can quickly turn into madness when there are too many people crowded into small venues and stages. CRSSD organizers are the real MVPs for capping the crowd capacity at 15,000 people over the weekend. This makes for plenty of room to let your dance moves loose, quickly hop from stage to stage and enjoy the intimate SoCal venue. Not to mention avoiding the outrageous lines and getting to see your favorite DJs up close and personal.
One of the best reasons to go to CRSSD is for the people! They are the coolest peeps in town! Not just because of the groovy outfits and hang loose vibes, but because it’s one of the few festivals that is 21+. Since the creation of CRSSD in 2015, it has always been a 21+ event, which in turn creates a more chill and mature crowd than your typical EDM rave. So leave your wittle kiddo friends at home and join one of the greatest festivals on the west side!
Speaking of west side, this is probably one of the coolest venues in sunny California! It would be a shame not to experience it. Picture it now… you’re swaying alongside the palm trees in unison to the beats Louis the Child is throwing down. To one side shores of Downtown San Diego, the other the beautiful cityscape. You can spot the USS Midway parked along the port to the other side. The smell of sea salt in the air, light coastal breeze caresses your face as you’re ankle deep in the City Hall fountains, dancing among all your favorite friends. It’s a one-of-a kind experience that you’ll recall for a lifetime.
As San Diego continues to burst with more growth and opportunity, so does its breweries! It’s quickly became one of the biggest brewing capitals in the country and is home to more than 100 breweries. So as you make your way to the bar areas, prepare yourself to feast your eyes on a laundry list of top notch craft beers. CRSSD will be offering a selection of craft beers, seasoned mixologists on site and even a chilled sake selection! And if drinking isn’t your thang, rest assured, there will be plenty of gourmet food trucks to feed after dancing cravings.
Those Beats Tho
Let’s not forget the stacked lineup that will be sure to have you boogieing on the dance floor all day and all evening, with musical talents ranging from the funky electronic Canadian duo Bob Moses, to Sofi Tucker’s hard-hitting house, and the groovy-disco vibes from Flight Facilities. Other performances include Claptone, Duke Dumont, Big Wild, Jeremy Olander and so much more!
So come on out! Meet some new friends, discover some new music, enjoy the gorgeous venue and share those amazing festival vibes! Grab your ticket, right now!
