Top Picks from the Nest: CRSSD Festival, San Diego 10/10-10/11/15

September 30. 2015 | By Emily Turner


Presented by FNGRS CRSSD and Goldenvoice, the second incarnation of CRSSD Festival will enliven San Diego’s Waterfront Park on October 10th and 11th. The 21+ festival’s electro-centric lineup will be dispersed among three stages – Ocean View Live, The Palms, and City Steps – and will run the electronic gamut from house, experimental, techno, trip-hop, dubstep, minimal, and synthpop varieties. This season’s stacked lineup is a distinct upgrade from the festival’s inaugural edition this past March; with the likes of headliners The Flaming Lips, TV on the Radio, Jamie xx, Banks, Panda Bear, Todd Terje, and a Bonobo DJ set, CRSSD has swiftly upped its game. 

We’ve created a playlist of our Top Picks from the Nest to help get you pumped for CRSSD, complete with majorly-hyped acts and hidden gems alike. Check it out below!
