CRSDD Festival is coming to San Diego this weekend, overtaking the downtown Waterfront Park with major DJ acts including Chromeo, Flight Facilities, Classixx, Jamie Jones, Maceo Plex and Hot Natured, just to name a few. For a city like San Diego, that’s the perfect deep house and techno lineup to soak in under the sun with sweeping water views in sight.
The talent performing at this inaugural event has San Diego looking hot on the festival-map, welcoming out-of-towners and locals alike to revel in the smooth electronic music vibes for two days straight.
So, while both Saturday and Sunday will be filled during the days with a stellar lineup unlike anything San Diego has seen before, CRSSD Festival is extending the impact of the artists coming to town by rolling out a series of after parties at major nightclubs and even one on a boat.
Once the sun sets and the sets wrap up, head to these six official “After Dark” after parties.
