Miike Snow, Zhu to headline the latest CRSSD Fest

The fourth edition of San Diego’s CRSSD will take a slightly darker, all-club-music tone.

The biannual dance music festival, which takes place Oct. 1-2 at downtown San Diego’s Waterfront Park, will sport the Swedish electronic pop act Miike Snow and the brooding house music producer Zhu atop the bill, with a wide range of party-friendly and edgier underground acts throughout the weekend.

Bonobo, Thomas Jack, Kanye West’s “Wolves” producer Cashmere Cat and Lido are slated for peak sets on the main stages, while Sophie, Maya Jane Coles and M.A.N.D.Y. are billed in the sweatier underground areas.

The festival – produced by the San Diego firm FNGRS CRSSD, whose founders have collaborated with Goldenvoice – can hold 15,000 fans for each of its two days, and it has become a popular day trip for LA fans.


After a brief experiment with alt-rock (booking the Flaming Lips and TV on the Radio in 2015, where attendance dipped), the fest returned to an almost-all-dance lineup for this year’s spring fest and continues that approach this fall.
