CRSSD Spring 2017 Review
Written By: Matthew Bruno
The weekend of March 4th and 5th is when the spring CRSSD festival was held and it was a weekend that I will never forget. It was my first festival that I have attended and I could not have chosen a better event. Taking place in beautiful San Diego at the Waterfront Park, the location set the scene for the festival and the outdoor environment created a fun and energetic atmosphere. The first day was awesome and the weather was sunny with a nice cool breeze. The day consisted of dancing at the many outdoor stages and eating some of the best sushi I have ever had at any type of event. The craft beer selection was awesome and there were so many different booths that made the service quick and easy. The best part was that there was a water station that allowed you to fill up any type of bottle you had free of charge. The lineup for the first day included Duke Dumont and Alunageorge, who absolutely killed it at the main stage. By the end of the night I was exhausted and ready for bed. I had to make sure I saved enough energy for the next day because it would be happening all over again.
Day 2 started off with an unusual weather forecast of light rain, but that did not stop anyone from having a good time. The energy was in the air more than ever as the audience embraced the rain and danced to the beat of the rain drops hitting the tarps. Luckily for those who were not prepared for the weather, there was a booth that sold merchandise so people could stay dry in a CRSSD hoodie. Eventually the rain stopped and the sun came out and enlightened the mood even more. My favorite performer of the day, Paul Fisher known as Cut Snake, kept the crowd moving with his deep house beats and electronic mixes. The lineup for the night also included Snakehips, Marian Hill, and Flume. All the performers killed it and the crowd was going crazy the entire time. I’ve never danced so much in my entire life.
CRSSD festival was a great experience and it is something that I will probably attend every year. There was a ton of open space for dancing, delicious food, the perfect location, and great people. If you are 21 and up and enjoy all these things, CRSSD festival is the event for you.
