CRSSD Spring 2018 lineup: Empire of the Sun, Gorgon City headline

The much-anticipated CRSSD spring 2018 lineup has dropped, and it features a couple of return acts atop the bill at Waterfront Park in San Diego next March.

Empire of the Sun and Gorgon City are atop the CRSSD spring 2018 lineup, which takes place March 3 and March 4. Empire of the Sun previously headlined the inaugural festival in March 2015. Gorgon City previously sub-headlined on the March 2016 edition, stealing the show from underwhelming headliner Chet Faker that night.

The rest of the lineup features a mishmash of acts that CRSSD has come to be known for, as the festival caters to electronic fans who are into more underground than mainstream acts. Other performers include Bonobo (live), Little Dragon, Gryffin, Tchami, SNBRN, Cirez D, Jai Wolf, Sasha, Anna Lunoe, and a variety of other acts. You can view the full CRSSD spring 2018 lineup below.

On Jan. 18, CRSSD Fest added 11 names to the lineup: Tiga, Thomas Von Party, Dense & Pika, Man Power, Weiss, Billy Kenny, Malaa, Trippy Turtle, Honey Dijon, Neil Frances, and Sinead Harnett.

I’ve always enjoyed myself at CRSSD Fest, and last March loved running into Terese, a 63-year-old woman who danced nonstop all weekend. Here’s hoping she returns to CRSSD Fest next year!
