CRSSD FEST: A(nother) Step Forward In The US Dance Music Scene

This past weekend Southern California house and techno aficionados came together at the Waterfront park in San Diego to prance, dance, and drink craft beer at the bi-annual CRSSD Festival.

Instead, the festival remains the same small size with three stages: The Palms stage, focusing on house artists; The City ... Read more

Unlike the larger festivals I have attended this ... Read more
